Wright beat All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman on his 38-yard touchdown catch in the first half.

Wilson has big day

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had his usual efficient performance. He completed 13 of 18 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns and a career-high 151.4 passer rating.

Wilson improved to 13-0 at CenturyLink Field and he now has 21 career victories, tying Dan Marino for second-most in NFL history through the first two seasons. Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger won 22 games his first two seasons.

“I have been in love with Russell since I got over here,” former Vikings receiver Percy Harvin said. “He just makes everybody else feel that much more comfortable because he knows the system so much. If anything ever happens, you just go to him and he’ll put you where you need to be.”

Both of Wilson’s touchdown passes carried a high degree of difficulty. On his 19-yard touchdown to Doug Baldwin with 10 seconds left in the first half, Wilson squeezed his throw between cornerback Xavier Rhodes and safety Andrew Sendejo.

He executed a trick pass to Marshawn Lynch for a 6-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Under pressure, Wilson flipped the ball to Lynch, who was actually his fourth read on the play.

“Just a little shortstop/ second baseman flip,” said Wilson, a former minor league baseball player. “A little double play.”

Etc.

• Vikings center John Sullivan left the game in the fourth quarter after being evaluated for a head injury. He was replaced by Joe Berger.

• The Seahawks set a franchise record with their 13th consecutive home victory.

• The Vikings other inactives were quarterback Josh Freeman, cornerback Shaun Prater, running back Matt Asiata, guard Jeff Baca, tight end Kyle Rudolph and nose tackle Letroy Guion.

• The Seahawks entered having allowed only 15 punt return yards in their first 10 games and they stayed at that number. Vikings punt returner Marcus Sherels had three fair catches and no returns.
