Russell Wilson eclipsed Kansas City Chiefs counterpart Patrick Mahomes for an NFL record as the Seattle Seahawks preserved their 100 per cent start to the season.

Wilson became the quarterback with the most passing touchdowns through the first three weeks of an NFL season in the Super Bowl era on Sunday.

The Seahawks QB threw five passing TDs in a 38-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys, taking his season tally to 14 and breaking the record previously held by Mahomes (13) in 2018.

MVP candidate Wilson also became the fifth player in league history to throw at least four touchdown passes in three consecutive games, joining Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, Drew Brees and Mahomes.

Wilson – a Super Bowl champion and seven-time Pro Bowler – was 27-of-40 for 315 yards and five touchdowns without an interception as the Seahawks improved to 3-0.
