2014 Week 19 vs CAR (15 / 22 / 268 / 3 / 0 pass, 7 / 22 / 0 rush)
Wilson was in control of this one from start to finish. His passing arm and vision really shone as he threw three very impressive touchdowns, and spread the ball out well to six receivers. His biggest highlight was a perfectly thrown deep pass to Jermaine Kearse, that was caught one-handed and taken for a 63-yard score. No less impressive were a perfectly lobbed - yes, lobbed! - ball to Doug Baldwin, who had faked out his defender at the goal line to get open. And finally, his bullet to Luke Willson from the 25 was the beginning of the end for the Panthers. He hit Willson quickly and perfectly in stride, which allowed him to take the ball all the way to the end zone. Wilson didn't run much in this game, but that's because he didn't have to.
2014 Week 20 vs GB (14 / 29 / 209 / 1 / 4 pass, 7 / 25 / 1 rush)
What to say about Russell Wilson that you haven't read or seen already? Wilson's game is patience. He had thrown 4 interceptions, and even got rocked by a defender as he tracked a ballcarrier on one of them, while trailing the Packers for the entire game. But he never faltered, never panicked. And when it seemed almost too late, the pieces that we know so well when this offense clicks, came together. It's not secret. When the running game is going strong, and Wilson is throwing accurately, that's when he is able to take off and gain yards of his own on the ground. And when THAT happens, all of a sudden the rushing and passing games become even stronger than before. And so it goes. That's the recipe, but it wasn't working for nearly the entire game against a surprisingly tough Packers defense. It was finally inside the two minute mark of the final quarter that he made the perfect fake handoff, and then ran in for a 9 yard score. After a successful onside kick, Wilson then moved the team in to setup Lynch's long rushing TD. And the capper was a desperation cross field throw for the two point conversion, caught by Luke Willson. In overtime, Wilson put the interceptions behind him - in fact, he put behind him the fact that all four were passes intended for Jermaine Kearse, and he threw one more his way. This time, it dropped in perfectly to his arms for the 35 yard score... and a trip to the Super Bowl.
