Friday Round-Up: Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner Help Lead NFC To Win In Pro Bowl Skills Showdown

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and linebacker Bobby Wagner helped lead the NFC to victory in the 2019 Pro Bowl Skills Showdown.

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today - Friday, January 25 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Pro Bowl Skills Showdown

Russell Wilson finished last year's Pro Bowl Skills Showdown precision passing challenge with just eight points, which needless to say was a disappointing stat line for the Seahawks quarterback. This week, at the 2019 Pro Bowl, Wilson looked to redeem himself for last year's outcome and the Seattle signal caller delivered, notching an event-high 19 points as he threw passes at a variety of targets worth one to five points at ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Fla.

The NFC side of Wilson, Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky, and Minnesota Vikings receiver Adam Thielen outpaced the AFC side of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, Houston Texans quarterback DeShaun Watson, and Denver Broncos pass rusher Von Miller in the competition by a combined score of 40-22.

Bobby Wagner, meanwhile, took part in the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown's Gridiron Gauntlet, a relay race event meant to showcase players' strength, speed, agility that saw the Seahawks linebacker bring head coach Pete Carroll's it's-all-about-the-ball attitude to a fumble scramble drill through an inflatable path. The NFC lost the relay leg of the competition, but rebounded in a game of Epic Dodgeball that both Wilson and Wagner were involved in, helping defeat the AFC to claim the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown title.
