It’s only Week 1…but
- Wilson joined Steve Young as the 2nd Quarterback in NFL history to have 30,000+ passing yards and 4,000+ rushing yards in a career.
- His 88.6% completion percentage is tied for the 3rd highest mark in a single game (min 35 attempts).
- Wilson is the 11th player in NFL history to throw for 30,000 yards through their first 9 seasons.
Wilson earned the weekly honor twice in 2019, in Week 2 and Week 9.
