Then you have this view, which shows Golden Tate fighting for the football in a desperate attempt to gain simultaneous possession of the football.

Regardless, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is impressed with himself, and he should be. He might have just thrown the first ever game-winning touchception in NFL history.
