The Seattle Seahawks were able to improve their record to 3-0 after its victory on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. Russell Wilson completed 27 of his 40 passes on Sunday for 315 yards and five touchdowns.

During the processes, Wilson broke Patrick Mahomes, which set in 2018 for the most touchdowns [14] thrown in NFL history through a team’s first three games.

“He’s just on it,” coach Pete Carroll said via ESPN’s Brady Henderson. “You’re watching a great football player do what he does best. I’m just really excited about what happens next time we go out.”

Three of his five touchdowns were to Tyler Lockett, who finished with nine catches and 100 yards. The other two were to Jacob Hollister and D.K. Metcalf. Speaking of Metcalf, Wilson through a 63-yard pass to the second year pro out of the University of Mississippi, which should have been his second touchdown of the game, and Wilson sixth. Unfortunately, Metcalf was careless with the ball en route to the Endzone, and the ball was knocked out by Trevon Diggs for a touch back.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll called it a “terrible play” by Metcalf.

“There’s no excuse for it,” Wilson said. “He knows that. He wants to be the best in the world. And the good thing about him is he’ll never do it again and he’ll be ready the next opportunity that comes to him. He’s like a little brother to me. We’re so close. I told him, I said, ‘Listen, there’s another opportunity. When it comes your way, you’re going to make the play.’ Just speaking life into it; just knowing that something great’s going to happen.

“Sure enough, he makes the game-winning touchdown, which worked out for us.”
