Baldwin hauled in a team-high seven catches for 113 yards. Baldwin was quarterback Russell Wilson's favorite option during the contest, receiving 11 targets. While Baldwin didn't lead the team in yardage, he was Wilson's most consistent target. It was Baldwin's first 100 yard game since Week 6.
Baldwin will look for more Week 17 against the Rams.
Baldwin showed off his deep-play ability, averaging 19.4 yards per catch. He finished with five receptions for 97 yards. Baldwin's score came in the fourth quarter. With Seattle up by three, Russell Wilson found Baldwin on a 23 yard touchdown reception to open up the lead. That was all the Seahawks would need, as the Eagles did not score again.

Moeaki caught a pass of about 12 yards near the sideline early in the second quarter and ran past his defender to bring the ball all the way down to the one-yard line before being caught.

The rest of the receiving corps didn't have much of a workload in the win Thursday, with quarterback Russell Wilson completing just 15 passes on 22 attempts. Tight end
The Seahawks have a trip to Philadelphia on the schedule in Week 14.
But his numbers have steadily waned since that season-best performance. He hit a new low Week 12 against Arizona, catching just two passes for 6 yards. Worse yet, those were his only two targets on the day.
Baldwin has had less than 50 receiving yards in four straight games, averaging 4.3 catches for 30.0 yards during that stretch. The good news is no other Seahawks wide receiver has really stepped up during that time. The bad news is quarterback Russell Wilson has averaged just 185.0 passing yards and has done his best to divide it between as many targets as possible.
Because he's the most notable player in the Seahawks receiving corps, Baldwin is still capable of delivering a big game, but with the direction the Seahawks offense has taken in recent weeks, you should no longer expect it, not even when he has a favorable matchup. His matchup couldn't be any less favorable Week 13 at San Francisco.
No one receiver was able to deliver a breakout performance on a day where the Seahawks led for most the game and attempted just 22 passes. Quarterback Russell Wilson hit nine different receivers with completions in the game, with tight end
