Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has never received an NFL MVP vote, but for the second season in a row, he is the early front runner to win the award.
A strong start and increased betting interest has Wilson at the top of the list to win the NFL’s regular-season MVP. Wilson started the season behind Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, and Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, last season’s award winner.
Wilson’s fast start has catapulted him to the top of the leader board. After starting the season at 10-1, Wilson is now the favorite at +320 to win the MVP at William Hill sportsbooks. Mahomes is next at +450, followed by Jackson at +500, as ESPN’s David Purdum relays.
Wilson has thrown nine touchdowns, which is tied for second-most in NFL history through two games, behind Mahomes’ 10 in 2018.
During his first two outings of the 2020 season, Wilson has completed 52 of his 63 passes for 610 yards, and posted a 9-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio.
Seattle is 2-0 with wins over Atlanta and New England. They take on the Cowboys on Sunday.

More on the Seattle Seahawks
Five players were kept out of practice, while eight were limited. Other than Rasheem Green and Cedric Ogbuehi, who did not play in Week 2 against the Patriots, all of those players listed saw action last week.
Green has not shown much improvement thus far in his neck to play this weekend against the Dallas Cowboys.
“Rasheem, he’s still kind of in the same mode. We haven’t turned the corner yet. We’ll have to see as this week goes on if he improves enough to where he’ll be able to play this week,” said Pete Carroll. “He’s not feeling that bad, but he’s still got a little something going on that we’ve got to wait through it and see which day it turns. So we won’t know until later in the week. But he has not been cleared yet for this week, so we’ll see what happens.”
- The four players that were held out due to rest were (RB Chris Carson, WR DK Metcalf, WR Tyler Lockett, and TE Greg Olsen).
- Cedric Ogbuehi was held out with pectoral injury, while TE Will Dissly (Achilles), CB Quinton Dunbar (knee), CB Neiko Thorpe (hip) were also limited in during Wednesday’s practice.
