BOISE, Idaho — Former Boise State standout Cedrick Wilson enjoyed his finest game as a NFL wide receiver on Sunday.

Wilson scored his first and second career professional touchdowns in the Cowboys 38-31 loss to the Seahawks.

The 2017 sixth-round pick caught a short slant from quarterback Dak Prescott in the second quarter and raced 40 yards to the end zone. Then in the third quarter, Prescott hit Wilson again, this time for a 42-yard touchdown.

Wilson is the only player in the NFL with multiple 40-yard touchdown grabs in a game this season. The feat was last accomplished by former Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs during Week 6 of the 2019 season.

Wilson finished the day with a career-high 107 yards receiving. He was also targeted a career-high seven times and tied a career-high with five catches.

"Ced came up huge tonight. Coming in, sparing the guys a couple of times, and he ends up getting a couple touchdown plays," Prescott said. "It was a tough loss, but you've got to look at all the good, a lot of guys coming in fighting and doing their best."

Prior to Sunday's game, Wilson had five career receptions for 46 yards, all of which came in a Week 6 contested against the Jets in 2019.

The 24-year-old played 24 total offensive snaps against the Seahawks, his second-most in an NFL game. Although he has contributed on special teams, Wilson only played a total of seven offensive snaps in the first two games of the season.

Wilson is the first Bronco alumnus with 100 receiving yards in a NFL game since Titus Young had exactly 100 yards for the Lions in Week 8 of the 2012 season.
