Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin is proving to be a playmaker. He has made some big plays down field getting open for a scrambling Russell Wilson, now he makes an incredible leaping touchdown catch against the Minnesota Vikings.

Baldwin has two defenders on him, a corner covering him and a safety rushing towards him. The corner back leaps up to get after the ball but can’t get to it. Baldwin elevates and gets the ball, meanwhile the safety is coming in to level him. He gets hit and you can see him move sideways suddenly mid-air.

He holds on to the ball and gets both feet down in the corner of the end zone despite being spun around. Incredible control given the numerous variables at work in this play. That will definitely be on SportsCenter and should be a Top 10 play nominee.
