Russell Wilson Becomes the Fastest QB in NFL History to Reach 100 Wins
In SummaryThe Seattle Seahawks quarterback reached 100 wins in his NFL career after the 28-21 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. Russell Wilson looks to add to his win total on Thursday against the Los Angeles Rams.
In the fourth game of his 10th NFL season, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson reached 100 wins, becoming the fastest QB in league history to reach the century mark win total.
Wilson, the 8-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion, accomplished his record on the same day that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady set the all-time record for career passing yardage.
Wilson, who faced off against Brady’s then-New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX, has a long way to go to reach Brady’s gaudy numbers. Then again, Wilson said he isn’t fixated on numbers. He wants to continue to pile up victories.
“That’s why I play the game,” Wilson said after the 28-21 victory Sunday over the 49ers. “To win.”
The win over the 49ers was Wilson’s 100th victory in his 148th start. Technically, it’s the fourth-fewest starts to get to 100 wins in NFL history, but he became the fastest in terms of overall games, which was capturing the victory in the fourth game of his 10th season.
The Wilson-led Seahawks are 2-2 on the season, which is tied for third in the division with the 49ers. The Seahawks will play the Los Angeles Rams (3-1) on Thursday Night Football, who are fresh off an abysmal 37-20 loss to the upstart Arizona Cardinals.
