Ex-Stanford wideout Baldwin continues to impress for Seattle


Wide receiver Doug Baldwin of the Seattle Seahawks had over 50 receiving yards for the fourth time in the past five games to lead a group of nine former Stanford players that caught passes in NFL games this past weekend.

Baldwin, who had 123 yards through the air last week, caught six balls for 61 yards, while being targeted eight times in a win against Carolina on Sunday. Richard Sherman had five tackles for Seattle.

Sixteen former Cardinal played over the weekend and Trent Murphy's Washington Redskins visited Dallas on Monday night.

Former Stanford standouts Andrew Luck, Coby Fleener, Griff Whalen and the Colts saw their five-game winning streak come to an end against Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Luck completed 26 of 45 passes for 400 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions, but it was not enough in the 51-34 loss. The Colts (5-3) remain in first place in the AFC South. Fleener had one catch for four yards. Whalen had one punt return for 16 yards and five kick returns for 122 yards (24.4 average).

David DeCastro started at right guard for the Steelers, making for a big Stanford reunion.
