Wilson exclaimed that this was “probably the craziest game I’ve ever played in” when asked about the outcome of Monday night’s contest. Those are some heavy words considering the number of crazy games that Wilson has played in his eight-year career.
To the dismay of Seahawks fans, the one game that comes to mind is Super Bowl 49 against the New England Patriots. In that game, there were four lead changes and the notorious play that is still instilled in everyone’s mind.
The Seahawks had the ball at the one-yard line with a chance to take a 31-28 lead with 26 seconds remaining. Instead of giving the ball to Marshawn Lynch, Seattle chose to throw, only to see it intercepted by Malcolm Butler.
Nevertheless, Monday night’s game versus San Francisco was an impressive victory for Wilson and the Seahawks. It was a back and forth affair between two vaunted NFC West teams, with Seattle giving the 49ers their first loss of the season.
Above all, Wilson showcased precisely why he deserves the NFL’s MVP Award up to this point. The dynamic quarterback finished the game with 232 passing yards, one touchdown, and an interception.
As he always seems to do, Wilson makes plays in the waning moments of a game to help his team win. Compared to other games he’s played in, this one might be the craziest for Wilson because of what it means in the grand scheme of things.
