Clay Matthews’ hit on Russell Wilson was game-changer (Video)

One of the biggest plays in the NFC Championship Game Sunday between the Packers and Seahawks came when Clay Matthews lit up Russell Wilson following an interception.

With his team down 16-0, Wilson threw a pass intercepted by Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Matthews decided it was a perfect time to get a big hit in on the quarterback and leveled Pro Bowler.

Matthews was penalized 15 yards for an illegal block, and Aaron Rodgers was intercepted on the ensuing possession, so it all turned out to be a wash. But that hit affected Wilson and he did not throw many passes on the team’s next drive. He just really seemed to be out of it after suffering that big hit.

Look at how Wilson’s head was snapped:

You have to wonder whether he even suffered a concussion.
