While the rookie quarterback pulled off the improbable, the Seahawks defense pulled off the more improbable, as the game is headed to overtime.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson had game-winning touchdowns against the New England Patriots and the Green Bay Packers at home, but has been waiting for a signature road win. It appeared that he may have had just that in Chicago in Week 13; it's just too bad that he can't do anything to help his defense.
Down 14-10 and struggling to get anything going against the Bears, Wilson needed to drive 97 yards with 3:40 and two timeouts left if Seattle was going to take the lead. Wilson was 6-of-8 on the drive, completing his last four passes, and connected with Golden Tate on a 14-yard touchdown to give the Seahawks a 17-14 lead with only :24 left on the clock. So that's it, Wilson and the Seahawks have their huge road win for the season, right?
Of course, all they had to do was stop Brandon Marshall. Except that Seattle couldn't do that, as Marshall escaped for a 56-yard gain on the first play of the ensuing drive. It put Robbie Gould in position to tie the game with a 46-yard field goal as time expired, sending the game into overtime.
