Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson said he may have just had a 24-hour stomach virus last weekend and that he feels good now as the team prepares for the Vikings Sunday.

Seattle Seahawk quarterback Russell Wilson played what was one of the best games of his NFL career Sunday while also feeling as poorly as he had for any game in his career.

Wilson talked after the game of having had to have three IVs during the game and waking up at 5:45 a.m. feeling ill.

Thursday, he said that’s all in the past, having apparently been a 24-hour stomach virus that has come and gone.

“Just maybe weather change, maybe I ate something bad, something funny, I don’t know,” Wilson said. “Just one of those 24-hour bugs.”

It didn’t stop him from throwing five touchdown passes, a career high that also tied the Seattle single-game record as the Seahawks held off the Steelers 39-30. It also won him NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors for the fifth time in his career.
