Brady looks in satisfactory shape in the first three games of the 2022-23 NFL season. He has amassed 673 passing yards and three touchdowns so far. The Buccaneers began their campaign with a 19-3 win over the Dallas Cowboys, with Brady recording 212 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.

The second game brought another victory for Brady's side (20-10) against the New Orleans Saints, where he covered 190 passing yards. Yet, the veteran could not aid his team for a third consecutive win as they lost to the Green Bay Packers 12-14. The 45-year-old, however, registered a clinical performance covering 271 yards and one touchdown.

In the meantime, Russell Wilson had a rough start with the Broncos as they lost to the Seattle Seahawks by a close margin (16-17). Individually though, the 33-year-old QB had an okay season. He covered 340 passing yards along with one touchdown. Since their first game, Wilson's side have won in two successive fixtures. First, they beat the Houston Texans by 16-9. The QB managed to cover 219 passing yards, one touchdown, and one interception during the entire game.


Russell had his lowest performance in their most recent clash against the San Francisco 49ers. Albeit a 11-10 victory, the new signing only put up 184 passing yards.
