Russell Wilson Fumbles Snap, Eludes Sack, Completes 35-Yard Pass During Miraculous Game-Changing Play (Video)
Should the Seattle Seahawks hold onto their 10-9 fourth quarter lead, after trailing 9-0 to start the quarter, this ridiculous display of improv on the part of Russell Wilson will likely go down as the defining moment that turned this game around.
It begins with Wilson fumbling the snap. From there, he recovers the loose ball more than 15 yards behind the line of scrimmage, rolls to his right, eludes a sack, and finds Tyler Lockett wide open in the middle of the field for a 35-yard gain—thanks to some extra yards after the catch.
A few plays later, the Seahawks would score their first touchdown of the game. They added a field-goal on their next possession following an Adrian Peterson fumble. And with a 10-9 lead and their offense on the field, Seattle is two minutes away from completing their fourth-quarter comeback.
