Almost two years after throwing the pick that sealed Super Bowl XLIX, Russell Wilson will meet with the New England Patriots. There is no doubt about the fact that Wilson is thinking about that play this week, even though it’s not his fault that it happened. He threw a good pass, his receiver has been beaten to the ball by Malcolm Butler, and that was all that happened. The pass was good, the route was bad, and the call was the worst.

How will he square up against Belichick’s defense this time around? There are a few factors that we need to consider when we think about how will Seahawks QB play.

The first thing that needs to be said about Wilson is that he is not at hundred percent. This has limited him in a big way. He is the kind of quarterback that needs his legs to be effective. Moving out of the pocket, making and extending plays with his legs is what this man is known for. When you are limited in doing what you do the best, you are in a world of trouble against a team like the Patriots and coach like Bill Belichick.

On the other hand, Jimmy Graham is back catching balls and being a legit threat for every defense. He is a great weapon for Wilson to have right now. Patriots have made some changes on defense, and it’s going to be a problem for them to stop Graham.

Still, we don’t see Wilson beating this Patriots team. We think that he will go 18/30 for 203 yards, one TD hookup with Graham and two interceptions. Patriots are winning this game.
