It was a beautiful play that looked like it was executed to perfection, exactly like it was drawn up.

In the attached video, new 710 ESPN Seattle contributor Heaps breaks down how Wilson communicated with Lockett to make the touchdown a reality, as well as how they avoided tipping off the Chicago defense that a change in plays was coming.
