Jaxon Smith-Njigba stuns Eagles with epic game-winning TD catch

Seahawks wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba scores a touchdown against the Eagles

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba provided the exclamation point on Monday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Seahawks stunned the Eagles in the closing moments of their Week 15 clash at Lumen Field in Seattle, Wash.

Seattle trailed 17-13 and had just 1:52 remaining for a game-winning drive beginning from their own 8-yard line.

Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock went 4/7 to start the drive to get his team to the Eagles’ 29. Facing 3rd-and-10 with under a minute left, Lock connected with Smith-Njigba for the play of the night — a 29-yard touchdown grab to put the Seahawks up 20-17.

Smith-Njigba had 4 catches for 48 yards as the Seahawks held on for the 3-point victory.

Lock went 22/33 for 208 yards with 1 touchdown and no interceptions. But his lone TD pass proved to be the decisive one in the closing seconds of the contest.

Not bad for a quarterback who was unsure if he was even going to play against the Eagles at all.

The Seahawks’ win snapped a 4-game losing streak, while the Eagles lost their third game in a row.
