Jaxon Smith-Njigba caught the best touchdown of his career thus far

Other than the amazing second interception by Julian Love to seal the game, was there anything more beautiful than Jaxon Smith-Njigba's touchdown pass to take the lead?

After they were unable to take advantage of the first opportunity given to them by Julian Love's first interception, they got the ball back with under two minutes left and needed a touchdown to have a chance to win. The weather wasn't ideal, and Drew Lock doesn't have a successful history of leading teams on game-winning drives, but all the stars aligned right when they needed it most.

Starting the series on their own eight-yard line, Lock and mostly the awakening of D.K. Metcalf helped march the offense down the field. They got near the Eagles' red zone and then looked like they would have to settle for a field goal or risk it all by going for it on fourth down.

Lock then threw a bullet to JSN for a 29-yard over-the-shoulder touchdown to put the Seahawks ahead with only 28 seconds left in the game. It was by far the rookie's best catch of the season and couldn't have come at a better time.
