Russell Wilson is playing the best football of his career. He is keeping with his usual routine of not turning the ball over and making something out of nothing, but the difference this year is he is showing the ability to carry the offense should something happen to Marshawn Lynch. He is looking to make more plays and is missing open receivers when going through his reads less often.

On the other side of the field is Philip Rivers. The guy’s attitude is questionable. His production is not. Rivers has thrown for an average of almost 4,300 yards over the past six seasons and while interceptions were an issue early in his career, he had only 11 last season.

Both of these QB’s are playing very well and are in the next tier of elites after Manning, Brady, Brees and Rodgers.

Advantage: Push
