In yet another thrilling Sunday Night Football game, the Seattle Seahawks outlasted the Minnesota Vikings, 27-26.
Well, it wouldn’t be a Seattle Seahawk game if you did not feel as though you were having a heart attack. In what felt like a very long and uncomfortable roller-coaster ride, the Seahawks outlasted the Vikings and were able to pick up their 5th win of the year.
The Seattle Seahawks are now 5-0 for the first time in franchise history. It is that time of the week where I hand out each position group its grade.
Russell Wilson proved once again last night on a nationally televised game that he is the 2020 MVP. After an uncharacteristic interception thrown by Wilson in the 4th quarter, he bounced back with the game-winning drive. With under 2 minutes remaining, the Seahawks had a 13-play, 94-yard drive that resulted in the game-winning touchdown. On that drive alone, the Seahawks converted two fourth downs, both of which were passes caught by WR DK Metcalf.
Typically, with an interception as bad as the one he threw, I would knock Wilson’s typical “A++” grade to an A. But, he was so special in that last drive, hanging in the pocket and making the tough throws on 4th down, that he deserved an A+.
Wilson finished by completing 20 of 32 passes for 217 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception. Wilson was all fired up last night and deservedly so, as the Vikings were in control in what felt like a 5-hour bout. But, it was the Seahawks who landed the last punch, thanks to Russell Wilson.
