In the 2014 NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has not had the easiest day. He’s had pressure coming from all areas from that San Francisco 49ers defense and he’s been running for his life for most of the afternoon.
A few times already, the Niners have got to him, creating the sack. They even forced a fumble on the first pass attempt of the game for Wilson and Seattle.
But that doesn’t mean that you’re going to get him every time, and Wilson proved that on a scoring drive in the second quarter once again.
On a 2nd and 7 play with just under 10 minutes to go in the first half, and his team trailing 10-0, Wilson dropped back and was under immediate pressure. This time, though, he was able to escape it. He got some great blocking up front as well, giving him time (a lot of it, actually) to find Doug Baldwin down the middle of the field to put the Seahawks in scoring position.
That play right there set up the Seahawks for the eventual field goal to pull to within 10-3.
