Something about playing the best always has brought out the best in Wilson. He enters this game 10-0 when facing Super-Bowl winning quarterbacks, including a 24-23 victory over Tom Brady and the Patriots in 2012 when Wilson was a rookie.
But many people will wonder which Wilson we will see Sunday: The one who threw four interceptions in the NFC Championship Game and the worst performance of his career for three-plus quarters? Or the one who helped pull off a miraculous comeback in the final few minutes of regulation and overtime, including the perfectly thrown 35-yard TD pass to Jermaine Kearse to win it?
It was the 15th time in Wilson’s three-year NFL career that he has led the Seahawks to a comeback win in the fourth quarter or OT, and the fifth time this season.
The Packers played a lot of man-to-man coverage on the Seattle receivers, and the tight coverage worked for the most part. Wilson’s receivers probably will see the same from Darrelle Revis and former teammate Brandon Browner.
Wilson is 6-1 in postseason play, including five consecutive victories.
