Seattle Seahawks Wide Receiver Doug Baldwin Ties Franchise Record For Touchdown Receptions
Doug Baldwin's second score of the day in the Seahawks' Week 15 game against the Cleveland Browns at CenturyLink Field has him tied with Daryl Turner (1985) for the most touchdown receptions by a Seahawks player in a single season.
The second-quarter score was Baldwin's 13th of the year and it came on a 6-yard pass from quarterback Russell Wilson. The score capped an 8-play, 57-yard drive that helped put the Seahawks up 14-7.
Earlier in Sunday's game, Baldwin tied Steve Largent and Joey Galloway for the second-most touchdown catches in a single Seahawks season with 12, hauling in a 3-yard score from Wilson in the first quarter.
"I'll have to text him and ask him what he thinks of it," Baldwin said postgame of what it means to be mentioned with Seahawks greats like Largent. "I know he's still competitive, so I'm not going to say anything other than we have two more games left.
"He's helped me tremendously," Baldwin added of his relationship with Largent. "His knowledge of the game and the nuances that he can teach me and the subtleties that he's taught me about the game has been vital to my improvement and my development as a player. I'm anxious to share this moment with him."
Baldwin joins Calvin Johnson and Cris Carter as the only players since 1960 to have four consecutive games with two-plus touchdown catches, and Baldwin and Jerry Rice (1987) are the only wide receivers to have 10 touchdown catches within a four-game span in a single season.
