Russell Wilson gave it all he had, a furious comeback to take the lead after being down 20 points. It would have been one of the great comebacks if the defense hadn’t folded like a cheap lawn chair.
However, any doubts about who should be the rookie of the year, Wilson closed his case emphatically. After the game Wilson spoke about the comeback that fell short, and how he is inspired by the potential of his young team.
"What defined the game was our attitude," Wilson said. "The way we played, and our resilient focus to play the game at a high level for the rest of the game,” according to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times.
"Anybody watching this game that knows football knows that was an unbelievable comeback, unbelievable game and an unbelievable atmosphere against a very, very good football team in the Atlanta Falcons."
"Walking off the field, I got so excited for the next opportunity," he said. "I'm looking forward to what we have in the future."
