All 22 Plays of 2013: Russell Wilson Burns the Cardinals

To celebrate the 2013 NFL season InsidetheFilmRoom is breaking down the All 22 film of the best 22 plays of the 2013 season. Today, we examine how Russell Wilson lived up to his nickname, Danger Russ, with a improbable 31 yard touchdown pass against the Cardinals.

Let’s look at how Russell Wilson made the Cardinal pay for bringing a blitz by escaping the pocket and finding Sydney Rice for a 31 yard touchdown pass.

Game Situation: 1st Quarter, 07:36, 1st and 10 at the ARI 31, Cardinals 0, Seahawks 0

Offensive Personnel: 4 WR (Sydney Rice, Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate, Jermaine Kearse) 1 RB (Robert Turbin)

Formation: Shotgun Trips Closed

Offensive Concept: Scramble Drill

Defensive Scheme: Man 1 Overload Blitz WilsonTD1 WilsonTD2 WilsonTD3 WilsonTD4

Summary: The NFL Network's Mike Mayock, who was calling this game, simply chuckled after seeing Russell Wilson unleash this magnificent touchdown pass. It's not that this play was so spectacular, it was how plays like this have become routine for Wilson. Whether its a escaping the grasps of a 300 pound defensive linemen or unleashing a 55 yard bomb under duress, Wilson has the ability to create plays where few others can.

The frightening thing for the rest of the league is that Wilson was making these incredible plays with a limited supporting cast, especially with multiple injuries to his offensive line in 2013. With the return of Percy Harvin, who showed just how lethal he can be in Super Bowl XLVIII, the Seahawks are primed to have one of the most explosive offense in the entire NFL next season. Not bad for a team built around its defense.
