Earl Thomas Interception Return Sets Up Russell Wilson Touchdown To Doug Baldwin

Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas' interception return helps set up a 20-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Russell Wilson to wide receiver Doug Baldwin.

Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas hauled in his team-high fourth interception of the year on Sunday against the Vikings in Minnesota, picking off a pass from quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who delivered a high ball to wideout Stefon Diggs. 

The ball tipped off the outstretched hand of Diggs and into the awaiting arms of Thomas, who returned it 25 yards to Minnesota's 20-yard-line. That's where quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seattle offense took over, and on the very next play, Wilson found wide receiver Doug Baldwin over the middle for a 20-yard touchdown that put the Seahawks up 21-0 just before halftime.
