A Superbowl Prayer for Russell Wilson's Seahawks

Credit :

The Seahawks, who are the defending Super Bowl champions, went up by three points thanks to a Marshawn Lynch rushing touchdown and sucessful two-point conversion with just over a minute left to play. However, the Packers forced overtime with a field goal with just 14 seconds left in the fourth quarter. But, the Seahawks quickly slammed the door shut on the Packers' NFL season when Wilson threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse on the first drive of overtime to earn the Seahawks' second consecutive Super Bowl berth.

Shortly after the gutsy win, Wilson and his teammates openly bowed in a prayer circle on the field.
When sideline reporter Erin Andrews asked Wilson what was key to what is now the biggest comeback in championship game history, Russell told her it was faith.
