Doesn’t matter if both teams have weak defenses, Seattle has Russell Wilson, and as long as he continues to play the way he has in these first four weeks of the 2020 season, there is no reason to put your money down on any team he and his Hawks take on.

The 1-3 Minnesota Vikings have a staring QB, Kirk Cousins, who is struggling with throwing the ball to players wearing his same uniform, so far with six interceptions in four weeks, the same number he though during the sixteen games of last regular season.
Russell Wilson, on the other hand, is having a breakout year so far, tossing for 16 TDs and only throwing 2 picks on the season, and leading his talented Seahawks to a 4-0 start that looks like it will soon be 5-0 after they take care of these shaky Vikings at home.
These two NFC teams have met each other 17 times (including 1 postseason matchup), with the Seattle Seahawks winning 12 games and the Minnesota Vikings winning 5 of those games.

Vikings QB Kirk Cousins is making big money, but he is not producing the way the Minnesota front office had hoped, with a 1-3 record so far this season and as many touchdowns as he has interceptions (6).
Cousins is even less accurate this season than he has been his entire career, his completion percentage at just 62 this season compared to his career level of 66.7.
There is no doubt Cousins has talent, but he no longer has Stefon Diggs to throw to, who the team traded to the Bills during the offseason, so it will be up to him to find a new deep threat target while Adam Thielen gets open everywhere else.
The Seattle Seahawks starting QB Russell Wilson is currently leading the league in completion percentage (75.2), touchdowns (16), and touchdown percentage (11.7) and is currently the highest-rated passer in the league (136.7).
The question is whether he can continue at this pace, averaging four touchdowns per game is necessary to come close to outscoring what his defense has been typically allowing opponents to earn, which is 27.3 points per game.
Wilson could be MVP if he keeps this up, and once Seahawks defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. figures out how to stop opponents from scoring so much, this Seattle team should easily be playing football in January.
Despite his rookie status, former LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson is a key part of the Minnesota Vikings passing offense, the first-round pick (22nd selection overall) a speedy deep threat who has the size to break free of tackles for more yardage after the catch.
So far in his first four NFL games, Jefferson has been targeted 20 times and has caught 16 of those passes for 348 yards and a touchdown, averaging almost 22 yards per catch and establishing himself as one of the Cousins up and coming targets to rely on.
