Russell Wilson has been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL since entering the league in 2012. He has an 86-41-1 record and has put his clutch gene on full display many times. He has totaled 21 fourth quarter comebacks and 28 game-winning drives.

However, there were potential comebacks that did not come to fruition. Take this 2018 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers, for example.

Down by eight with one un-timed down, Wilson had a chance to tie the game. After extending the play with his legs, he found wide receiver David Moore in the back of the end zone and delivered a perfect pass.

Unfortunately, Moore lost concentration and dropped the potential game-tying touchdown. In Moore's defense the ball did appear to be tipped, but it's still a play he would've liked to have had back.

Wilson was running for his life all game long, being sacked four times on the day. He passed for 235 yards and two touchdowns to just one interception. He also carried the ball five times for another 41 yards. Moore, meanwhile, caught just two passes for 16 yards, despite being targeted seven times.
