WATCH: Russell Wilson catches first career TD pass on trick play

Seahawks fans have seen Russell Wilson complete touchdown passes to Doug Baldwin numerous times over the years, but the script was flipped during Sunday’s game against the Eagles.

This time, it was Wilson who hauled in a touchdown pass from Baldwin on a trick play in the third quarter of the game. The Seahawks quarterback received the snap and flipped the ball back to Baldwin, and it looked like he was going to take off running with the football.

He didn’t, though. After pitching the ball, Wilson quickly turned into a receiver as he ran downfield and attempted to get open. He succeeded, and Baldwin hit him in stride near the end zone with a perfect pass for the 15-yard touchdown.

It was Wilson’s first touchdown catch of his career.

Baldwin is a pretty dynamic receiver, but now we know he can sling it pretty well, too.
