By the Numbers: Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin Stay Perfect In 3-Touchdown Games

Sunday night wasn't the only time Russell Wilson and Doug Baldwin connected for three touchdowns.

The Seattle Seahawks moved to 6-2-1 on the season after defeating the New England Patriots 31-24 on Sunday Night Football. To recap notable player performances, team milestones and (of course) how the game played out, we compiled 10 numbers from the Week 10 primetime contest. 


It took until Week 10 of the NFL season for a Patriots quarterback to throw an interception. A loft from Tom Brady in the first half sailed to Seahawks cornerback DeShawn Shead (his first pick of the season), which was Brady's first regular season INT since December of 2015. He went 182 straight pass attempts without one.


For the second time this season, Seahawks punter Jon Ryan only punted the ball two times in a game (San Francisco, Week 2). Ryan's punts against the Patriots averaged 52.5 yards, with the longest of the two kicks going 54 yards.


Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin was the recipient of all three touchdown passes from Russell Wilson yesterday. It was the sixth multi-touchdown game of his career and third scoring three times. Seattle has a 6-0 record in those games, and have outscored opponents 215-93.


Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner recorded five tackles against the Patriots, snapping his five-game streak of recording 10 or more tackles. Nonetheless, Wagner (93) only trails Cleveland's Christian Kirksey (94) for the NFL's lead in tackles.


Yesterday's game between the Seahawks and Patriots was the second in Week 10 to have seven or more lead changes, joining the Cowboys and Steelers. It became the first day in NFL history in which two games had seven or more lead changes.


The Seahawks registered win No. 9 in the all-time series against the Patriots, which moved the team above .500 at 9-8.


Baldwin isn't the only player to thrive for the Seahawks when recording three touchdowns. In the regular season, Wilson has thrown three or more touchdowns and no interceptions in a game 12 times, with Seattle winning all 12 of those contests.  He needs one more of those games to tie Dan Marino for most ever in a QBs first five NFL seasons.


An amazing stat per NBC's broadcast from last night: Since 2001, the Patriots are now 102-2 in regular season home games when holding a fourth quarter lead. Their only other loss came against the Giants in 2011.


On Sunday, Jon Ryan played in his 136th consecutive game for the Seahawks, breaking Chris Gray's franchise-record of 135. 


Lastly, Steven Hauschka connected on four field goals against the Patriots, surpassing Norm Johnson (159) for the franchise-mark in field goals made with 161. Hauschka's kicks were good from distances of 27, 31, 41 and 23, respectively.
