Doug Baldwin up, offensive line down in Seahawks' loss

SEATTLE -- A look at Seattle Seahawks players who were "up" and those who were "down" in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the St. Louis Rams:


Doug Baldwin: He was questionable with a hamstring injury, but showed up once again with eight catches for 118 yards and a TD. Baldwin now has 14 touchdowns on the season, setting a Seahawks franchise record. He has recorded career highs with 73 catches and 1,023 yards.


Offensive line: This group had been playing really well during the five-game winning streak, but Russell Wilson was sacked four times and took 13 hits Sunday. The Seahawks couldn't get anything going on the ground either. Christine Michael and Bryce Brown combined for 15 yards on 13 carries. The Rams won the battle up front. That was the story of the game.

Richard Sherman: He's played really well this season, but Sherman got beaten by wide receiver Kenny Britt for a 28-yard touchdown on a go route down the right sideline. Afterwards, Sherman made no excuses and said he just used bad footwork at the line of scrimmage.

Patrick Lewis: The Seahawks center had multiple errant snaps. He looked devastated in the locker room after the game, in full uniform staring at the ground with his hands folded while his teammates shuffled off to the showers. Lewis has provided much-needed stability to the offensive line, and this has not been a season-long issue, so it's reasonable to suggest he just had a bad day.
