VIDEO: Doug Baldwin Punt Block Gives Seahawks Early Lead Over Rams

The Monday Night Football matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and the St. Louis Rams is still in the first quarter, but there's already been at least one spectacular play by the Seattle special teams.

After Seattle had halted a Rams drive, St. Louis set up to punt. The Rams offensive line collapsed, leaving punter Donnie Jones swarmed by Seahawks defenders. Doug Baldwin jumped towards Jones and the punt ended up going directly into Jones' midsection. The ball bounced toward the St. Louis end zone and Michael Robinson scooped it up, returning it 17 yards for an easy touchdown. The play ended with the Seahawks taking an early 1-0 lead.

The Seahawks are hoping to see more sloppy plays from the Rams and jump out to a big lead. They still have a shot at making the postseason.
