Play of Seahawks QB Russell Wilson generating buzz about his name being added to MVP race

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Russell Wilson was asked Thursday if he should be in the conversation for league MVP.

His response was 417 words, with nearly all of them deflecting attention away from himself and onto his teammates.

Don't expect Wilson to engage in that discussion, even if it's slowly becoming a legitimate question about a situation others believe is plausible.

Wilson is coming off his best game of the season. He threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another 47 yards in the Seahawks' 34-7 blowout of New Orleans. And because it came on Monday night in front of a national audience, and because the Seahawks have the best record in the NFL, Wilson's recent play is being highlighted.
