Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson started Sunday night’s game against the New England Patriots by throwing a pick-six into the hands of Devin McCourty. The pass itself was deflected by Greg Olsen, meaning that it was not Wilson’s fault.

From that point on in the first half, the MVP candidate was absolutely cooking. That included a 54-yard bomb to stud second-year receiver D.K. Metcalf.

What a bomb. What a catch. Wilson must have one of the prettiest deep balls in the NFL today. By virtue of this completion, he also had connected on 10 consecutive passes to even the game up against New England at 14.

As for Metcalf, he’s going to continue being a problem for opposing defenses after the former Mississippi star fell to the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. This connection is already too good.
