We’ve seen plenty of bounces go Russell Wilson’s way over the years, but tonight, at least one cost the quarterback and his team six points.
In the second quarter of a tie game against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football, Wilson attempted a pass on second down that was batted backwards by a defensive lineman. Wilson tried to bat the ball out of the air away from defenders.
However, he wound up inadvertently sending it into the waiting arms of Minnesota’s Anthony Harris who coasted into the end zone with an easy pick-six.
Just a truly ridiculous play.
One of the craziest Pick-6s you’ll ever see.

Wilson immediately shook off his error/misfortune by leading the Seahawks on a drive downfield. They are knocking on the door of the Vikings’ end zone as we just hit the two-minute warning.
