Sunday’s 17-10 loss to Arizona marked the worst statistical game of the season for Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, who was 11 of 27 for 108 yards, one touchdown and one interception. His completion percentage of 40.7 was his lowest of the season as was his 49.6 passer rating.

Some numbers from Pro Football Focus further revealed some of Wilson’s struggles against the Cardinals.

According to PFF, Wilson completed just 1 of 7 deep passes (balls that traveled 20 or more yards in the air) for 28 yards and one ended up an interception.

He also was pressured often and struggled in those situations, going 2 for 10 for just 5 yards. He was sacked four times on 14 drop-backs when under duress.

For the game, Wilson had an accuracy percentage of 45.8 (measuring success on passes aimed at a specific receiver while taking out passes that are throwaways, spikes, etc.).That was the lowest of any QB in the NFL in Week 16. That dropped him to an accuracy percentage of 71.6 for the season, 22nd in the NFL. Last year, he finished at 77.1 percent, fourth in the NFL.
