The Seattle Seahawks extended their lead over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday thanks to a terrific trick play that featured a Doug Baldwin pass to none other than quarterback Russell Wilson in the end zone.
That’s right: Wilson caught a touchdown pass on a throw from his favorite wide receiver.
On the play, Wilson first pitched the ball to Baldwin on what looked like a reverse toward the right side of the end zone. Wilson, though, made his way toward the left edge of the field, and instead of running, Baldwin stopped, pivoted, threw a perfect ball right into Wilson’s hands.
Wilson fell into the end zone for the score.
Here’s the play:

The touchdown gave the Seahawks a 23-7 lead. It also marked the first receiving TD of Wilson’s career.
