Jermaine Kearse of Seattle Seahawks Eludes Denver Broncos Defense (GIF)


In Super Bowl XLVIII, the Seattle Seahawks showed that the Denver Broncos are not the only team with talented receivers.

Jermaine Kearse is a great story, as the former member of the Washington Huskies was able to make some great catches during the season and help the team make it to the Super Bowl. With the score 29-0, Russell Wilson sets up in the shotgun at the 23-yard-line. Wilson hits Kearse across the middle at the 18, and if the Denver defense does their job, Kearse gets dropped right there.

Instead, the Broncos missed tackles, Kearse spun, and he somehow pinballed his way into open space. Kearse scampered into the end zone to put the ‘Hawk up 36-0 and end any hope that the Broncos might have had of coming back.

The crazy play looked like this:

Credit Kearse for staying on his feet and being aware of his surroundings even after he was spun completely around. If you are the Denver coaching staff, you save that little bit of film and use it in the future when talking about how not to tackle.

Many Seahawks stepped up in this game, and Kearse is no exception. At this point of the game, the Seahawks probably did not need the touchdown. However, it sure was fun to watch.
