Russell Wilson is playing at an MVP-caliber level for the Seattle Seahawks this season. Sunday, against the Cleveland Browns, he managed to add two more passing touchdowns to his season total. Despite a solid performance, the quarterback didn’t “steal the show” for Seattle. Instead, the Seahawks’ receiving core had the biggest moment of the game when they paid homage to legendary boy-band NSYNC during a touchdown celebration.
Towards the end of the first half, Wilson threw a pass 17 yards for a touchdown to wide receiver Jaron Brown. After the score, Brown was joined in the end zone by fellow pass-catchers Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf and David Moore. Together, they performed a choreographed celebration of NSYNC’s 2000 hit, Bye Bye Bye.
With three total touchdowns during the game, Wilson rallied the visiting Seahawks (5-1) to come from behind and beat the Cleveland Browns (2-4) 32-28, at FirstEnergy Stadium in front of 67,431 fans. The Browns season struggles continue, this time having made four turnovers.
Seattle’s receivers have been choreographing celebrations dating back to last season. Celebrations are an integral part of the game and can be exciting for fans, while also playing an integral role in building team morale. With the way Wilson is lighting it up this season, it’s only a matter of time before the WR’s are back at it again.
