Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin might not be 100 percent, but it sure looks like he’s getting healthy for the stretch run.
The former 1,000-yard receiver opened the scoring Sunday with a five-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson. And then, later in the first half with his team down 14-6, Baldwin absolutely burnt the 49ers on a 35-yard touchdown.
Check the play out in all of its glory.

What a brilliant display of athleticism from Baldwin there. His ability to not only haul in the pass but also turn up field was awe-inspiring.
On a somewhat related note, what great tackling from the 49ers. Multiple defenders had an opportunity to sack Wilson. In the back end, multiple players also had a chance to bring Baldwin down before he scored.
Alas, it was not to be.
