WATCH: Former Wisconsin QB Russell Wilson might’ve had the play of the year

Former Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson has a weird history with Hail Marys.

First, there was the Michigan State QB Kirk Cousins’ buzzer-beating Hail Mary touchdown against the Badgers in 2011.

Now, we add a potential NFL play of the year to the list.

Wilson and the Broncos trailed the Commanders 35-27 with three seconds left in regulation. Denver had the ball at the 50 yard-line, needing a touchdown and two-point conversion to force overtime.

Wilson faced immediate pressure at his own 40-yard-line and heaved the ball into the air, though it would’ve fallen a few yards short of the goal line.

Then chaos happened:

The tough part of the story is the Broncos missed the two-point conversion and lost 35-33, dropping to 0-2 on the season.

Wilson through two weeks has completed 68% of his passes and thrown for 485 yards, five touchdowns and one interception. Despite the 0-2 record, he looks much better than he did last year with head coach Sean Payton now roaming the sidelines.

Wilson and the Broncos are back in action next Sunday against the Dolphins.
