Russell Wilson took the NFL by storm, being voted to a Pro Bowl and leading his team to an 11-5 record as a rookie. Despite somehow shockingly never receiving a single NFL MVP vote, Wilson has been one of the most consistently dominant quarterbacks entering the league in 2012.

Being one of the most efficient quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen when it comes to winning, Wilson has embarrassed plenty of opponents. These are three of the teams Wilson has dominated most in his eight-year career.

*Note: All Russell Wilson career stats reference below are limited to regular-season games.

3. San Francisco 49ers (12-4, .750 Win Percentage)

While the 49ers have vastly improved over the past season, Wilson has dominated San Francisco across his entire career. He has led his team to a 12-4 record over the Niners, passing for 26 touchdowns to nine interceptions. Despite the 49ers being so competitive last season, Seattle still split their two meetings, losing by only five points in Week 17, even with Wilson's team shorthanded due to injuries.

2. Minnesota Vikings (5-0, 1.000 Win Percentage)

Wilson has never lost to Minnesota, leading his team to a perfect 5-0 record. He has passed for 10 touchdowns while throwing just two interceptions against the Vikes, and completed 67.5 percent of his passes while doing so. While the Vikings have been touted as one of the toughest defenses in the league during this stretch, Wilson has continued to find a way to efficiently beat them.

1. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0, 1.000 Win Percentage)

While Wilson has only played Pittsburgh twice, he has absolutely dominated them. Having won both matchups, Wilson completed 76.92 percent of his passes, averaging 322.5 passing yards per game with a career-best 147.1 QB rating (i.e. highest QB rating in games against one particular NFL opponent). Wilson also threw eight touchdowns to zero interceptions in these two games. Last season was the most recent meeting, when Wilson completed a ridiculous 82.86 percent of his passes on the way to a road victory.
