If you missed Monday night’s game in our nation’s capital, you missed an instant classic in Russell Wilson’s career. While it wasn’t a comeback like some of his other memorable games in the last couple years, this was a game he dominated.
Colin Cowherd explained it very well when he said it looked like one of those games at the high school or college level where one guy stood out above all other players on the field. Wilson had 200+ yards passing, 100+ yards rushing, two passing touchdowns and he ran one in on their way to a 27-17 victory.
The game wasn’t without controversy, however. Percy Harvin was in the end zone three times and each time the Hawks were flagged on the play to nullify the score. It was a great game by Harvin that won’t show up in the box score. It made fans and even a couple Seahawks players to wonder out loud if something nefarious was going on to attempt to keep the game close in prime time.
After getting out quickly to a 17-0 lead, the Seahawks were able to overcome some sloppy play, including eight pre-snap penalties, and remained in control for the entire game. Jon Ryan was the star on special teams, pinning the opposing team inside their 10-yard-line on several drives and he even ran for a first down on a fake field goal attempt that led to Seattle’s final touchdown.
What kept Washington in the game was two deep passes to DeSean Jackson that led to 10 points. Their last touchdown came in the final minutes to pull within seven points. But the Seahawks were able to get into field goal range and put the game out of reach after an incredible play by Wilson to get the ball to Marshawn Lynch. It is a must-see highlight.
