By the Numbers: Doug Baldwin Ties Seahawks' Single-Season Receptions Record In 25-23 Win Over San Francisco 49ers

A look at 10 key numbers from the Seahawks' 25-23 win over the 49ers.

The Seattle Seahawks finished the regular season 10-5-1 after defeating the San Francisco 49ers 25-23 on Sunday. To recap notable player performances, team milestones and (of course) how the game played out, we compiled 10 numbers from the Week 17 contest:


The 49ers fumbled the ball three times on offensive drives against the Seahawks — including their opening series — which tied a season-high by a Seattle opponent this season (New England, Week 10).


Finishing the season at 10-5-1, the Seahawks have recorded a double-digit win total for the fifth-straight year. Those five straight seasons of 10 or more wins matches the total the franchise had from its inaugural season in 1976 through the 2011 season. Before this stretch, the Seahawks had never posted double-digit win totals in consecutive seasons.


Defensive end Frank Clark crossed off a goal yesterday. Clark finished his second season in the NFL with 10 sacks, a shade more than tripling the three sacks he recorded in 2015. After the game, Clark said recording double-digit sacks has always been something he wanted to do. Also, Clark forced his second fumble of the season and recorded his first fumble recovery.


For the first time in four years, the Seahawks will not lead the NFL in points allowed per game. Seattle allowed 18.2 points per game, trailing the New York Giants (17.8) and New England Patriots (15.6) for the fewest point total.


Seahawks rookie running back Alex Collins set a new-career for rushing yards in a game with 55 on seven attempts. The highlight of Collins' day was a 26-yard run he broke loose in the third quarter.


Sunday's victory helped Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tie Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan for the most wins by a quarterback in his first five seasons with 56.


Doug Baldwin finished with a career-high 94 receptions for 1,128 yards in 2016. His 94 catches tied him with Bobby Engram for the most by a Seahawks wide receiver in a regular season.


Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright set new career-highs in the following categories this season: tackles (126), tackles for loss (12), assisted tackles (54) and sacks (four). 


A week after setting Seattle's franchise single-season mark for tackles with 155, Wagner officially took home the NFL’s tackle crown for the 2016 season with 167. He is the first player in franchise history to accomplish the mark. The next player behind him recorded 149 tackles. Additionally, his 12 combined tackles in San Francisco also gave him his 10th double-digit tackle game of the season.

Wagner also sacked 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick twice Sunday, a new career-high. He finished the season a half-sack away from tying his career-high of five, which he set in 2013.


By passing for 258 yards against the 49ers, Wilson set a new single-season high for passing yards, ending the 2016 regular season with 4,219.
