Seahawks Back in Playoffs After 30-13 Win Over the Browns
SEATTLE (AP) — Because of what the Seattle Seahawks formula for offensive success has been in the past, Russell Wilson and Doug Baldwin would be considered unlikely candidates to find their names in the NFL record book for passing and receiving proficiency.
And yet, the marks Baldwin and Wilson set on Sunday in Seattle's 30-13 win over Cleveland overshadowed the Seahawks clinching a playoff berth for the fourth straight season and fifth time in six years under Pete Carroll.
Wilson was 21 of 30 for 249 yards and three touchdowns, two of them going to Baldwin. Wilson's other TD pass was to Tyler Lockett from 27 yards on the first play of the fourth quarter as Seattle won its fifth straight.
Baldwin joined Jerry Rice as the only wide receivers in NFL history with 10 TDs over a four-game span in a single season.
