Russell Wilson and Doug Baldwin connected for a play of the year candidate vs. Cardinals

New, comment

This one’s going to be hard to top.

The Seahawks pulled off the most Seahawks play on Thursday Night Football against the Cardinals.

Russell Wilson spun around like a ballerina a few times to dodge Cardinals defenders and dropped a dime to Doug Baldwin who nearly got in the end zone for a touchdown.

The amazing part of the play is that Baldwin was initially a blocker on the play. Because Wilson extended the play with scrambling and a pump fake, Baldwin peeled off and then darted for the end zone.

The next play, Jimmy Graham came down with a beautiful touchdown grab to finish off the drive.

Nothing’s going to make up for the loss of Richard Sherman, but Seahawks fans can look at this as a bright spot and even a glimmer of hope, because the Seahawks are going to need to make plays like this if Sherman will be out for an extended period of time.
