Top 10 Seahawks plays of the 2015 regular season

2. Doug Baldwin's 80-yard TD catch, Week 12 vs. Pittsburgh. Baldwin joked that he didn't catch Wilson's pass so much as the pass caught him, referring to how he couldn't pick up the ball until right as it arrived because two players passed through his line of sight. Baldwin then avoided one defender, stiff armed another and raced down the sideline for an 80-yard touchdown, his third score of the day. It sealed Seattle's victory and put a bow on the most productive game of his career. 3. Thomas Rawls' 69-yard TD run, Week 5 at Cincinnati. Rawls started to the right and cut back across the field, breaking a tackle en route to Seattle's longest run of the season. It was Rawls' first career touchdown, and it showed the determination that defines him as a runner. 4. Doug Baldwin's 53-yard TD catch, Week 13 at Minnesota. This may have been Russell Wilson's best play of the season considering what all he did right. First was his diagnosis of the defense, which led him to change the protection. Then he stood in the pocket with a rusher closing in before delivering a perfect throw to Baldwin as he was being hit. 5. Bobby Wagner's fumble return TD, Week 5 at Cincinnati. Wagner scored the touchdown, recovering a loose ball and returning it 23 yards to the end zone. But Michael Bennett made it all possible, shooting through the line of scrimmage and forcing a fumble right as Cincinnati's Rex Burkhead took the fly-sweep handoff. 6. Cary Williams' fumble return TD, Week 1 at St. Louis. Williams was an absolute flop of a free-agent addition, released 10 games into a three-year contract that included $7 million guaranteed. The highlight of his brief stint with Seattle came in the season opener, when he forced a fumble on a corner blitz, recovered the loose ball and returned it 8 yards for a touchdown. Williams also got credit for a sack on the play. 7. Tyler Lockett's 105-yard kickoff return, Week 3 vs. Chicago. Seattle's offense had flat-lined through a first half in which it scored six points and went 0 for 6 on third down. Lockett then ran back the opening kickoff of the third quarter for a touchdown, going untouched as he raced 105 yards for the longest return in franchise history. 8. Ricardo Lockette's flea-flicker TD, Week 6 vs. Carolina. The Seahawks reached into their bag of tricks, dialing up a flea-flicker pass in which Marshawn Lynch took a pitch then threw a lateral back to Russell Wilson. Jermaine Kearse was on the receiving end when Seattle ran the same play for a touchdown against Atlanta in 2013. This time it was Lockette, who turned his body in mid-air, reached over the back of Panthers safety Kurt Coleman and caught Wilson's pass in the end zone for a 40-yard score. 9. Richard Sherman's trick punt return, Week 3 vs. Chicago. The Seahawks took a page out of the Rams' special-teams playbook, dialing up a trick play on a punt return. Tyler Lockett diverted the attention of the Bears' coverage unit toward one side of the field while Sherman caught the punt on the opposite side then returned it 64 yards. 10. Jeremy Lane's special-teams INT, Week 12 vs. Pittsburgh. The Steelers lined up for a long field-goal attempt only to shift their formation pre-snap and attempt a pass. Lane read it all the way, picking off the throw and returning it 54 yards before his legs gave out. The context of the play is what made it memorable. Lane was playing in his first game since the Super Bowl, when the only other interception of his career resulted in a broken wrist and a torn ACL that sidelined him for the first 11 weeks of the season.
