Opponent Scouting Report: Seattle Seahawks Quarterback
The Indianapolis Colts head to Seattle to take on the Seahawks in a Sunday Night showdown at a hostile environment, and arguably one of the toughest places to win in the NFL.
How tough? Well, Seahawk quarterback Russell Wilson has a regular season record of 35-6 at home ever since the team drafted him in 2012.
In those 41 games that have been played at Seattle in the regular season, Wilson has thrown for 68 touchdowns and only 18 interceptions.
To start off the 2017 season, Wilson so far has thrown 5 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.
Wilson has proven he can make plays with his arm, but he can with his feet as well as he is known to scramble out of the pocket and take off for extra yards. The one positive for the Colts is that Wilson has put the ball on the ground four times this year, but the fact that he makes the defense think about his running ability can cause headaches.

However, the Colts have received good news that could give Wilson some headaches as well. Indianapolis’ Pro Bowl cornerback Vontae Davis has returned to full practice and could play this Sunday.
Wilson is a quarterback who can make plays with his arm, his feet, and is someone who has succeeded at the NFL’s highest level. And he’s especially dangerous at home.
Critics may say his success relies on a strong defense, but every team needs a quarterback, and the Seahawks have a good one in Russell Wilson.
