Russell Wilson brought to tears after improbable comeback
For the second straight year, a member of the Seattle Seahawks gave us a memorable postgame interview after the NFC championship game.
On Sunday, it was quarterback Russell Wilson, who was moved to tears after orchestrating an improbable and thrilling comeback against the Green Bay Packers, leading the Seahawks to a 28-22 win in overtime after the team trailed 19-7 late in the fourth quarter.
Wilson threw four interceptions but saved his best play for the fourth quarter and overtime.
With less than three minutes left in the game, the Seahawks were able to rip off two touchdowns and a two-point conversion to take a 22-19 lead. Then Green Bay tied it up with a Mason Crosby field goal to force overtime, but then Wilson connected with wide receiver Jermaine Kearse for the game-winning score.
After the game, Wilson was interviewed by FOX sideline reporter Erin Andrews and was clearly overcome with emotion, as you can see in the video above.
Last season, it was Richard Sherman who made headlines in his post-NFC title win interview with Andrews. You probably remember that one, but here it is anyway because it’s too good not to watch one more time.
And then we had kids reenact it, which is just adorable:
