Russell Wilson: God Set Up the NFC Championship, Making it "so dramatic, so rewarding, so special"

By Jason McIntyre

Russell Wilson was reduced to tears after Seattle’s incredible comeback to beat the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship, a victory that propelled the Seahawks to the Super Bowl again. Wilson was abysmal for 55 minutes, throwing four interceptions. The final one should have ended the game. But it didn’t, Seattle quickly scored, got lucky on an onside kick, scored again, and then won the game in overtime on a picture perfect Wilson TD pass to Jermaine Kearse.

How can one begin to explain Wilson’s terrible performance for the majority of the game, but then his heroics late?

"“That’s God setting it up, to make it so dramatic, so rewarding, so special,” he said, alone for a moment in the locker room before heading out for the night. “I’ve been through a lot in life, and had some ups and downs. It’s what’s led me to this day.”"

Wilson told Peter King that late Sunday night.

Take it away, people on the internet.
