This Given Sunday:
Kansas City Chiefs
New York Jets
San Francisco 49ers
Notre Dame Fighting Irish
We wrap up the 13th Sunday of the NFL season by looking at a handful of players who exceeded expectations and a handful who failed to deliver.
Russell Wilson, Seahawks: I know Wilson shouldn't surprise me anymore, but the guy led an unbelievable 97-yard touchdown drive in the final minutes against a great Bears defense on the road and then never let Chicago touch it in overtime. That was the rookie's most impressive effort yet.
Brady Quinn, Chiefs: Jamaal Charles was the key to Kansas City's emotional victory over the Panthers, but Quinn had his best game since -- well basically since his Notre Dame days. The much-maligned custodian quarterback completed 83 percent of his passes, threw two touchdowns and didn't turn it over on Sunday.
Greg McElroy, Jets: Small sample size, I know, but McElroy relieved Mark Sanchez after Sanchez threw three interceptions and ended up playing very well. He completed five of his seven passes and led the game...
BEST OF MAXIM
CHICAGO -- Quarterback Russell Wilson of Seattle is no longer short nor a rookie. Well, actually, he's still both of those things, but don't try telling that to the Chicago Bears -- or to the Seahawks, for that matter. Wilson stood tall and played like a poised veteran Sunday, directing a magnificent drive late in the fourth quarter and then another in overtime, eventually...
Russell Wilson's late-game heroics help the Seattle Seahawks topple the Chicago Bears 23-17 in a back-and-forth overtime contest at Soldier Field.
Russell Wilson was trying to share the credit, spread it around to all different teammates, when he came to this: "Matt Flynn goes out there to get the coin toss flip, and that was big for us.''
Matt Flynn. Yes, I remember him. He's the guy Seattle signed for $29.5 million to run the offense. We haven't heard from him since, though he has apparently developed...
Julius Peppers told reporters with the Chicago Tribune that Russell Wilson caught the team off guard. “He likes to play with his legs,” defensive end Julius Peppers said via the Chicago Tribune. “We weren’t prepared for it, but he did a good job today.” How in the world is that possible? The Seahawks noticed the Bears were caught flat-footed The post Julius Peppers...
The Chicago Bears needed to keep Jay Cutler upright if they were going to defeat the Seattle Seahawks. They did that but it was their defense who could not contain Seattle’s Russell Wilson late in Sunday’s game.
Earlier in the week, Seattle head coach Pete Carroll said that the training wheels were off of the offense. Wilson attempted a career high 37 passes against the Bears...
I know I had a million other people I could’ve made the lead out of from yesterday’s games but I think you’ve already heard of them and you already know how good they are and what they do. Don’t worry, I’ll be able to talk about them below. What you need to realize is for all the accolades being shined on Luck and RGIII, Russell Wilson is putting together a strong year...
The Seattle Seahawks needed overtime to pull off today's upset of the Chicago Bears, but in the end, Russell Wilson was able to take the Seahawks down the field on the first possession of overtime, ending with a touchdown toss to Sidney Rice.
The game was close throughout, with the Seahawks holding a late lead before Jay Cutler connected with Brandon Marshall, putting the...
Russell Wilson delivered in a big way for the Seattle Seahawks Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Wilson led the Seahawks on a 97-yard TD drive right before the end of regulation and then a game-winning 80-yard drive in overtime, capped off by this touchdown pass to Sidney Rice, who was nearly decapitated on the hit.Via @cjzero

After another great performance that included a big win over the Bears on the road, Seattle Seahwks cornerback Richard Sherman believes rookie quarterback Russell Wilson is a little better than both Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck. “They’re going to hype who they’re going to hype, and you’re in the Seattle market, and it doesn’t matter what you do,” Sherman said...
The distances the Seattle Seahawks offense needed to cover late in regulation and then again in overtime left plenty of opportunity, as Pete Carroll put it, to ''really screw it up.''
Not with Russell Wilson at the controls. Not with the way this rookie is playing.
''There's really nothing to hold us back with what we can do and ask the quarterback to...

Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks
Russell Wilson continued to shine on Sunday in Chicago, as he threw for 293 yards and a pair of touchdowns with another 71 yards on the ground in the team’s 23-17 win over the Bears.
He has multiple TD passes in each...
On target with his passes, too fast with his feet and composed when he could have wilted down the stretch, Russell Wilson was simply having a blast.
Why wouldn't he?
He stared down the Monsters of the Midway and gave Seattle a rare road win, not to mention a playoff boost.
Wilson threw for two late touchdowns, connecting with Sidney Rice for a 13-yard score with 7:33 left...
