The Seahawks had never been shut out with Russell Wilson at quarterback until Sunday night, when Aaron Rodgers and the Packers claimed an ugly 17-0 victory to spoil Wilson's anticipated return from injured reserve. Most discouraging of all might've been Wilson's own performance -- an out-of-sync clunker that saw the Pro Bowler complete just 50 percent of his passes and throw a pair of untimely interceptions. But Wilson told reporters afterward that his finger, surgically repaired during his three-game stint on IR, was not to blame.
"My finger felt fine," he said. "The problem with tonight was I had two bad plays, you know?"
Seems like Wilson escaped Week 10 with no more damage to his finger after a stint on IR. It wasn't the type of fantasy performance Wilson's owners were expecting against the Packers, however. Things won't get easier for Wilson as they take on the Cardinals in Week 11.

Week 12 vs Washington
If there's a week for Russell Wilson to get right, it's this week. Primetime against the worst defense vs opposing quarterbacks and Seattle's season is on life support. Cam Newton made his epic return against Washington last week. Here's thinking Wilson does the same this week (in a bit of a different fashion, of course).
