Will Russell Wilson finally get back in shape?  – CBS Chicago


(CBS Boston) – Russell Wilson returned from finger surgery a few weeks ago, only to be ruled out by the Green Bay Packers. His numbers were a bit better against the Arizona Cardinals in another losing effort. These are two of the best passing defenses in the NFL, in terms of distance. But the Seattle Seahawks quarterback faces a better match this week. The Washington football team is allowing 270 passing yards and 26.7 points per game, the worst two-fifths in the league. Wilson should be able to post better, fantastic numbers.

CBSSports.com’s Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Heath Cummings Sr. broke down the Week 12 games and came up with their best options for you this week. The full list of players is below.
