Evidence just keeps mounting that Russell Wilson is one of the good guys. After toughing out a 17-9 victory over an Eagles defense that battled relentlessly after losing their offensive centerpiece, Wilson made a beeline for Doug Pederson to check on Wentz's condition.

Some peoples' brains don't work like this. Even if they care, it isn't their first impulse after an impactful win.

That's not Russell Wilson, though.

Luckily for all parties involved, Wilson got the all clear from Pederson; this was a short-term disaster, but doesn't appear to be something that will impact Wentz moving forward.

Josh McCown, the 40-year-old QB who picked up in Wentz's absence, had an eventful postgame session of his own.

Based on Wilson's exemplary behavior, we're sure he checked in with McCown, too. He wasn't the enemy he expected to battle with, but the gutsy veteran put up an impressive fight.

Heck, everyone involved deserves their due for this one. And Wilson knows that, too.
