Crazy Stat Shows How Good Russell Wilson Has Been Against The NFL's Best Quarterbacks

Mike Salk of ESPN Radio dropped an eye-opening stat about Russell Wilson and how he has fared when he goes head to head against arguably the four best quarterbacks in the NFL in Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, and Aaron Rogers:
That is certainly impressive, and yes, the Seahawks' awesome pass defense has a lot to do with that record, as Wilson is not actually defending those other quarterbacks. But a closer look shows that Russell Wilson has a knack of playing best when he is going against the best.
In fact, there is another stat for Wilson in those games that is even crazier.
Here is a look at Wilson's stats in those six games compared to the other 32 games in his career. One stat in particular stands out:
Despite throwing nearly the same number of passes per game, Wilson's interceptions go from once every 40 passes to NEVER.
The result is that Wilson's Adjusted Yards per Attempt (AY/A), which adjusts Yards per Attempt for interceptions thrown, goes way up from 8.1 to 9.9. An AY/A of 9.9 would have been second in the NFL last year, behind only Nick Foles of the Philadelphia Eagles (10.5).
Wilson may never be ranked among the best quarterbacks in the NFL if he continues to so rarely throw for 300 yards in a game (just 3 in his career). But not only does Wilson not crumble under the pressure of playing against the best, he seems to actually get better.
