The Seahawks exploded during the second half of the 2012 regular season behind starting quarterback Russell Wilson. Note that he threw more touchdowns than NFL rookie darlings Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III (26). His plus-16 differential of touchdown passes (26) to interceptions (10) was the best in history by a rookie QB, SI.com notes.
