Seattle Seahawks fans are thrilled with the possibility of some good news. Their favorite quarterback, Russell Wilson, has no plans of leaving Seattle. Many speculated that the Week 18 game against the Arizona Cardinals would be his last. Some even said that there’s a lot of wear and tear on Wilson. He has been washed up over the years. While others believe he is one of the best. The game last night was a perfect example of this debate.

The first two and a half minutes of the game were an emotional rollercoaster for Seahawks fans. The washed-up part of Russell Wilson came out at first. During the second play of the night, Wilson was sacked. He lost the ball, and Arizona’s defense scored an easy touchdown. The outside linebacker broke through Seattle’s offense and tackled the quarterback. In this fumble, Wilson lost possession of the ball. The Cardinals’ defensive end Zach Allen retrieved the ball and ran it 16 yards for a touchdown.   

Just five plays later, Russell Wilson redeemed his name. He proved to everyone why he still deserves to be in the Seahawks. The quarterback threw a 75-yard drive to Tyler Lockett for a touchdown. It evened the score of the game. This almost unreal comeback became the highlight of the night. The Seahawks defeated the Cardinals with a score of 38-30. And Wilson tried to make sure that he remains in a Seahawks shirt for the next season.
