Danger Russell Wilson is correct – NFL is back!

Russell Wilson hobbled for majority of the second half but just like magic he stepped for the Seattle Seahawks in their 12-10 win over the Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins were dominant all game but what happens when their best unit is without two of their main players – Earl Mitchell and Mario Williams?

A last minute drive and game winning touchdown from Wilson himself – a 75-yard scoring drive.

Many questioned whether the Hawks could continue without their beast Marshawn Lynch and they leaned heavily on Wilson but if that is what he can do not at full strength – the NFL will have to look out.

He threw a career high of 43 passes, many which came after his ankle injury, and he did not miss a snap as glided his throw to Doug Baldwin Jnr – a dramatic finish at the CenturyLink Field.

One touchdown, one interception and 258 yards passing – Wilson still remains one of the most interesting and exciting quarterbacks on the scene.

After the third quarter, the game was 6-3 in favour of Seahawks but Cassius Marsh stepped up and made things interesting.

A standout special team’s defensive end player for Seattle he blocked a 27-yard field-goal in a move that instantly made him the player of the game.

Marsh gained three solo tackles, had one blocked kick and one sack on Ryan Tannehill. He was described as ridiculous.

And he was, he more than made up for his miscue when he missed timed a run which allowed Miami to rip off a 50-yard-pass as Seattle allowed only five pass plays of more than 40 yards all of last season.

Tannehill did manage an efficient 86-yard drive that appeared to secure a huge upset for prior to the magnificent partnership of Wilson and Baldwin.

CenturyLink’s 12s were once again out in force and Wilson climbed up in the record books – 47 quarterback wins as he moved into seventh place for most regular seasons wins for a quarterback in their first five.

Seattle always adopt sayings before during and after their games and this week it was, protect home turf, build a bridge and the difference between a mob and a movement is a follow through.

It is their work as a team that has allowed them to come as far as they have in the past few years, one trophy and two Superbowl finals, they are most definitely a team to watch in postseason.
