Determined Wilson ready to test Colts

(Continued)

The Seahawks finished second in the NFC West at 11-5 and won a wild card playoff game against fellow rookie Robert Griffin III — the No. 2 overall pick in the draft — and the Washington Redskins.

Sunday will mark Wilson's first meeting against the player taken first overall in his draft class — Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck — and he said he looks forward to matchups against his fellow 2012 QBs.

"It's always special," he said. "I think this quarterback class is going to be really, really good one day. We have a long ways to go. It's one of those things that when you look back at it — hopefully 15-20 years from now — hopefully, our goal is to be one of the best quarterback classes to ever play the game. We have a long ways to go, man. It's one of those things that you just take one day at a time. To be able to play against Andrew Luck, it's going to be a fun game."

Of course, as Luck points out, the quarterbacks aren't actually playing against each other.

Wilson's task will be to solve an Indianapolis defense that has allowed just 10 total points in its past two games. The Colts held San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick — Wilson's chief rival in the NFC West — to 13-of-27 passing for 150 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. Kaepernick gained just 20 yards on seven rushes.

But Wilson provides a different challenge than other mobile young quarterbacks. He can run when his protection breaks down, but he prefers to get the ball into his receivers' hands and let them make plays.

"I think Russell probably does a better job keeping his eyes downfield when he's scrambling and extending the play," Colts cornerback Darius Butler said. "I would say he's more of a threat with his arm. He's a smart kid. He stays poised, for a young quarterback especially."
