Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson Escapes Pressure, Hits Wide Receiver Jermaine Kearse for 34-Yard Gain

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson found wideout Jermaiine Kearse for a 34-yard gain in the first half of Monday Night Football against the Detroit Lions.

We might as well start calling him Harry Houdini, because Russell Wilson proved to be quite the escape artist on Monday Night Football against the Detroit Lions. 

The Seahawks quarterback eluded first half pressure from Detroit defensive linemen Jason Jones and Ezekiel Ansah, spinning away from a would-be sack and climbing the pocket before delivering a strike to wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, who picked up some yards after the catch on what would end up being a 34-yard gain.

The big play helped set up the Seahawks' first score of the game, with Wilson finding wide receiver Doug Baldwin for a 24-yard touchdown on the very next play.
