There you have it, Russell Wilson tops our list as the best passing quarterback of the 2015 regular season. Seattle's dual threat produced a career year in the air and carried his offense into the post-season after a concerning start to the campaign. But while Wilson ranks above his compatriots regarding the pass, there's no denying Carolina's Cam Newton from taking home the honours as the game's best quarterback in total offense. 

The 2016 NFL season kicks off on September 9th (AEST).
