Did Doug Baldwin just have the best 4-game stretch a receiver's ever had?

SEATTLE – It wasn’t a great game for Doug Baldwin – at least, not compared to his  previous three.

You know you’re in rare territory when four catches for 45 yards and two touchdowns constitute your worst game in almost a month.

Baldwin’s “mediocre” game capped perhaps the best four-game stretch by any receiver in NFL history, as he became the only receiver other than Jerry Rice to catch 10 touchdowns in games, and one of only three receivers in the Super Bowl era to catch multiple touchdowns in four consecutive games.

“What magnificent production,” coach Pete Carroll said after the game. “It’s clear that those guys are working together well, but all the receivers are playing well – Jermaine (Kearse) had a big game today, and Tyler (Lockett) too.”

Indeed, for a team that’s traditionally been known for it’s hard-hitting defense and run-first offense, Seattle is suddenly running up the score on team after team.

The Seahawks scored at least 30 points for the fifth consecutive game – the first time they’ve done so under Carroll – and they’ve put up a whopping 171 points during that stretch.

Another nice stat: Seattle didn’t turn the ball over in the game.

“I think that you see that just the efficiency of the offense has been as good as it’s been since we’ve been here, I think,” Carroll said.
