The Seattle Seahawks have been incredibly consistent since drafting Russell Wilson, winning double-digit games in all but one season and making it to a couple Super Bowls. However, it sometimes can be forgotten exactly how the team to the Super Bowl.

We can point to one important game in the NFC Championship that helped Seattle get back to the big game. After forcing overtime against the Green Bay Packers, Wilson found wide receiver Jermaine Kearse for the walk-off, game-winning touchdown.

Overall, it was a game to forget for Kearse, who struggled all day long. In fact, he failed to record a single catch through four quarters. However, great players show up in big moments, and Kearse was definitely there when his team needed him.

At the 35-yard line and driving on the Packers, while let the ball fly on the quick throw out of his dropback. Kearse had the inside step on cornerback Tramon Williams, with no safety over the top. The wide receiver managed to keep his position and control the contested catch, as he fell into the end zone, sending his team back to the Super Bowl.
