Who knows what that remark was about, but you can sure it wasn’t about the game’s outcome and it didn’t come after an injury or an Indianapolis Colts touchdown. Wilson chuckled for a few seconds during a slow time, for whatever reason, before crossing his arms again in defeat.
Of fact, all it takes is a single still shot taken out of context to make Wilson and… Nokia News – Quick Recap
