Whitehurst-to-Baldwin has scored again. Twice.
Charlie Whitehurst and Doug Baldwin, who hooked up for a game-winning 27-yard touchdown pass in the Seahawks’ 36-25 upset of the New Giants on Sunday, have been nominated for NFL.com weekly awards. And you can help them win.
Whitehurst is a nominee for the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week. The Seahawks’ backup QB came on in the second half, after Tarvaris Jackson strained a pectoral muscle, and completed 11 of 19 passes for 149 yards. The biggest, of course, was the 27-yard TD pass to Baldwin that gave the Seahawks a 29-25 lead with 2:37 remaining in the game. Whitehurst was 4 of 5 for 77 yards on the 80-yard drive, and the incompletion was a dropped pass.

Baldwin, who made the team as an undrafted free agent, is a nominee for Pepsi Rookie of the Week. Baldwin caught eight passes for 136 yards against the Giants, including three for 50 yards on the 77-yard drive that ended with his TD catch. Baldwin also had a drive-opening 22-yard catch and an 8-yarder on third-and-7 during the seven-play possession.
You can vote for Baldwin here. He also was nominated for this award after his four-catch, 83-yard performance in the season opener.
Voting ends at 9 a.m. PDT on Friday. For another look at the original Whitehurst-to-Baldwin, click here.
