Pete Carroll joked that the distances the Seattle Seahawks offense needed to cover late in regulation and then again in overtime left plenty of opportunity to "screw it up."

RENTON, Wash. —

Pete Carroll joked that the distances the Seattle Seahawks offense needed to cover late in regulation and then again in overtime left plenty of opportunity to "screw it up."

Not with Russell Wilson at the controls.

With two drives on Sunday - one at the end of regulation and the other in overtime - Wilson kept Seattle firmly in control of the final playoff spot in the NFC with a 23-17 overtime win over Chicago. He led the Seahawks to touchdowns the final two times they touched the ball, sandwiched around a defensive breakdown that sent the game into overtime and could have left others shaken by the sudden change.

Not this rookie. Wilson accounted for 56 of Seattle's 80 yards on its overtime touchdown drive, including 28 yards rushing. Three times he converted third downs and capped Seattle's victory by hitting Sidney Rice on a 13-yard TD.
