CHICAGO — His team desperate for a road win, Russell Wilson had one simple message before overtime.
This is it, this is the season.
If the Seattle Seahawks didn’t save it, they sure gave their playoff hopes a boost.
Wilson threw two late touchdowns, connecting with Sidney Rice for a 13-yard score with 7:33 left in overtime to lift the Seahawks to a wild 23-17 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.
“He’s just so beautifully poised and so confident that it gives himself a chance to play at this level,” coach Pete Carroll said of Wilson.
