Drew Lock found out he was starting at QB for the Seattle Seahawks not long before the game and delivered the team to a dramatic comeback win over the defending NFC champion Eagles.

Following the incredible victory capped by a 29-yard TD pass to Jaxon Smith-Njigba, Lock gave an emotional post-game interview sure to inspire Tigers fans.

See what he had to say below.

Drew Lock Gives Inspiring Post-Game Interview

Lock completed 22/33 passes for 208 yards and the game-winning TD while avoiding any turnovers.

With the Seahawks trailing 17-13 late in the contest, Lock orchestrated a 10-play, 92-yard drive that'll be remembered in fan lore for quite some time.

It was a spectacular performance and included one of the best plays of the season in an absurd throw to D.K. Metcalf on the final drive, setting up Smith-Njigba's winning score.

Geno Smith was reportedly active in the game but ultimately did not play, leaving the duties up to Lock. He delivered in a massive way, maintaining Seattle's playoff hopes while knocking off one of the NFC's elite teams.

It's possible the Seahawks will call on Lock again. After all, he's proven he can beat teams and execute the offense when it matters most.

At the very least, Lock likely earned himself some money tonight. The ability to count on your back-up in a pinch or potentially even start a competition is a luxury in today's NFL.

Lock had a big night and his Tigers take on Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl next week. FanDuel Sportsbook is giving new users a $150 bonus if Mizzou wins!
