Seahawks Russell Wilson Thwarted by Buccaneers Defense - NFL Week 12 Passing Statistics

By Chris Malumphy

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers held Russell Wilson to the worst passing rating of Week 12 as the Bucs beat the Seahawks 14-5. Wilson was only able to complete 51.5% of his 33 passes for a miserly 151 yards, 4.6 yards per attempt, 8.9 yards per completion, with no touchdowns and two interceptions which resulted in a rating of 38.8. Wilson was also sacked six times for 33 yards of losses. It was another good showing for the Buccaneers' Jameis Winston. Winston has now topped a rating of 100.0 in three of his last four games and four of his last six. The Bucs have now won three in a row.

Other quarterbacks having subpar ratings for Week 12 included the Texans' Brock Osweiler, the Colts' Scott Tolkien, the Bears' Matt Barkley, the Bengals' Andy Dalton and the Chiefs' Alex Smith. Tolkien and Barkley are career backups. Osweiller should be. Dalton faced a tough Ravens' defense and lost. Smith battled the Broncos and won.

The Redskins' Kirk Cousins had another statistically excellent game against the Cowboys gaining 449 yards, throwing three touchdowns with no interceptions, completing 77.4% of his passes and not being sacked at all. But it wasn't enough to overcome the efforts of Cowboys' rookies Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott. The Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger pounded the Colts with a limited passing attack in which he threw only 20 passes but for three touchdowns. Drew Brees helped coach Sean Payton get a little revenge on Rams' defensive coordinator Gregg Williams by completing 77.8% of his passes for four touchdowns.

The 49ers' Colin Kaepernick may be getting back on track. He passed for 296 yards and ran for 113 more in a 31-24 loss to the Patriots. But the 49ers have a long, long way to go before returning to respectability.

The Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill and the Titans' Marcus Mariota continued to play well. The Chargers' Philip Rivers got back on track after having played increasingly poorly for several weeks. The Jets' held Tom Brady to his worst passing rating of the year, but even though Ryan Fitzpatrick had one of his better games, it wasn't enough as the Patriots topped New York 22-17.
