Russell Wilson is one of three Seahawks who are representing the NFC in a week of skills challenges and events ahead of the 2019 Pro Bowl in Orlando.

Russell Wilson extension should be among top priorities for Seahawks

While Wilson was originally a Pro Bowl alternate — the Seahawks quarterback was named to the starting team only after Aaron Rodgers opted not to participate — he helped lead his conference to a win over the AFC in Thursday’s Pro Bowl Skills Showdown.

Wilson took home the top score (19) in the Precision Passing challenge, ahead of Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (11) and Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (10). The NFC topped the AFC 40-22.

Wilson and Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner were also part of a dodgeball challenge. Wilson was the first member to be tagged out, but Wagner was one of the final three players — along with Thielen and 49ers tight end George Little — to remain in and win the challenge for the NFC.
