Doug Baldwin Sets Seattle Seahawks Franchise Record For Receiving Touchdowns in a Single Season

Doug Baldwin hauled in a 25-yard score against the St. Louis Rams, a play that set the franchise record for receiving touchdowns in a single-season and made Baldwin the team's first 1,000-yard receiver since 2007.

SEATTLE - Doug Baldwin took care of two milestones in one play on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.

The Seahawks wideout hauled in his 14th touchdown of the season on a 25-yard pass from quarterback Russell Wilson in the third quarter at CenturyLink Field, setting a franchise record for receiving touchdowns in a single season. Baldwin surpassed Daryl Turner, who had 13 touchdowns for Seattle back in 1985.

"I'll think about it when I retire," was Baldwin's comment postgame when asked about making Seahawks history.

Baldwin also topped 1,000 yards receiving on the season on the play to become the Seahawks' first 1,000-yard receiver since 2007, when Bobby Engram finished with 1,147.

The 25-yard score cut into St. Louis' lead, 16-10, and upped Baldwin's Week 16 receiving total to 100 yards on six catches.
