Seahawk quarterback Russell Wilson received praise for good sportsmanship after checking on Philadelphia Eagle’s quarterback Carson Wentz, who took a hit that knocked him out of the wild-card game on Jan. 5.  

Wentz left the game with a head injury after Seahawks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney delivered a bit hit in the first quarter.
