Russell Wilson: No problem with final play call
Monday February 2nd, 2015

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tweeted on Monday that he won't allow one play or moment to define his career.

During Sunday's Super Bowl, Wilson threw an interception to New England cornerback Malcolm Butler on second and goal at the Patriots' 1-yard line. The Seahawks were on the verge of scoring a go-ahead touchdown with less than 30 seconds remaining when the pick occurred.

After the interception, the Patriots ran out the clock to win the game, 28-24.

Seattle head coach Pete Carroll accepted blame for the play call after the game, and Wilson said he thought it was a good call.

"I put the blame on me — I’m the one who threw it," Wilson said. "It’s something you learn from, it’s something you grow from."
