Seahawks receiver Tyler Lockett and quarterback Russell Wilson were perfect this season.
Wilson posted a perfect passer rating (158.3) when targeting Lockett this season. The quarterback targeted Lockett 70 times.
The two completed the feat in Sunday's win against the Cardinals when Wilson hit Lockett for a touchdown in the first quarter and then Lockett snagged a 37-yard completion that set up the Seahawks' game-winning field goal. Seattle beat Arizona 27–24.
Since 2002, the previous target high among receivers whose quarterbacks had perfect ratings was 15.
