Wilson Leads Seahawks
Wilson did not have his hands on much of the first half, with the Seahawks going down 21-3.
In the second half however Wilson took over and lead a comeback effort.
Wilson finished 21/31 with 277 yards and one touch down.
That scoring toss went to Tyler Lockett who had nine catches for 177 yards.

Marshawn Lynch did not start the year on any NFL Roster.
However, he did finish the year with a couple touchdowns in his return to the Pacific North-West.
But, the ultimate goal of getting another Super Bowl ring was not fulfilled.
Lynch’s post game presser included comments toward younger players.

Late in the fourth quarter, a game changing play came down to a skeptical referee decision.
The nine yard pass however did not look like it made the line to gain on television.
Green Bay went on to run out the clock and win the game.
