(TORONTO) — Russell Wilson accounted for four touchdowns and the Seattle Seahawks ripped the Buffalo Bills, 50-17, on Sunday at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada.
Wilson, the first-year quarterback, rushed for three touchdowns in the first half and threw for another as the Seahawks (9-5) piled up 50-plus points for the second straight week. They became only the third team in NFL history to accomplish the feat.
“We’re definitely clicking well,” Wilson said. “I’ve been on a couple of teams that have scored that many in college. But to do it in the National Football League, I mean that’s really tough to do.”
The win also kept Seattle within one game of the NFC West lead with a matchup with division-leading San Francisco next week.
The Bills (5-9) continued to struggle on defense, allowing 45 or more points for the third time this season. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 217 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.
