It just keeps getting better for Jermaine Kearse.
By now, you’ve surely seen the play many times: the former Husky coming through with yet another clutch postseason catch, this one a 35-yard touchdown in overtime to send the Seahawks back to the Super Bowl. Bob Condotta writes that it is “one of the most memorable moments in Seattle sports history.” Hard to argue with that.
“I wish every ball in the game felt as easy as that one,’’ Kearse said. “I mean, I just had no doubt in my mind I was going to come down with that play.’’
