Russell Wilson outperformed the so-called NFL Rookie of the Year Robert Griffin III
With an obvious tormenting injury to RG3's knee bothering him even more when he tweaked it in the first half of this extremely competitive game.
Kirk Cousins took over and is looking like a starter with little signs of rookie flimsiness. Another play later, Cousins rockets a ball over to wideout Hankerson. After that, a bad snap allows the Seahawks front seven to swarm the rookie. A fourth down failed conversion, where a lackluster beginning to this series put the stank stench on the Washington Redskins sideline. The Seahawks looked to run out the clock and advance themselves into the deeper waters of the NFL playoffs.
Russell Wilson played like a seasoned veteran with (187) yards (1) pass TD and added (67) yards on the ground. He never hesitated and performed check downs in Tom Brady like fashion. With his consistent play and being a confident presence in the backfield, he took the Seahawks to the next chapter of their Super Bowl season.

Zach Miller is the unsung hero
Miller blocked, caught and gave rookie QB Russell Wilson a warm blanket to check down to when all other options were locked down. A respectable (4) catches with (48) yards receiving came when the Seahawks needed a first down and crucial yardage.
Marshawn Lynch is more than Seattle could have ever dreamed of as a perennial running back. Such fury and drive to run the ball down the Redskins mouth is what Lynch did in Washington D.C. (132) yards and (1) TD are stats that a Superbowl MVP has. When they get that far, through hard fought battles and massive amounts of planning and hard work, I hope he has enough arm strength to lift the glorious Superbowl trophy in the air.
