Emotional Russell Wilson gives postgame interview through tears

Monday January 19th, 2015

An emotional Russell Wilson gave his postgame interview through tears following the Seattle Seahawks come-from-behind win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game.

The Seahawks were down 19-7 with five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter when Wilson threw his fourth interception of the game on a bobbled catch. But Seattle rallied, scoring on a one-yard run by Wilson before recovering an onside kick and taking the lead on a 24-yard rushing touchdown by Marshawn Lynch.
