Watch: Russell Wilson emotional in postgame interview on Paul Allen night
Russell Wilson was emotional in his postgame interview with FOX reporter Kristina Pink after the Seattle Seahawks escaped with a 30-29 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night.
The Rams had just missed a 44-yard field goal that would have won the game. It was an improbable finish and a bit of luck for Seattle to win. Wilson was tearful as he was interviewed. Wilson was moved because the team had a tribute to late team owner Paul Allen.

Allen, a co-founder of Microsoft, bought the Seahawks in 1996. He died last year at 65 due to non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Wilson also posted a video on social media after the game where he gave tribute to Allen and said this win was for the late owner.
