Bach is visiting Los Angeles to check out proposed venues for the 2024 Olympic Games. The Los Angeles bid committee for the 2024 Olympics is projecting a $5.3 billion budget, a number that would be less than half the cost of the recently completed Rio de Janeiro Games and about a quarter of where Tokyo’s ballooning budget for 2020 currently stands. Bid officials say they can do this because more than 30 venues already exist and those that don't will be built as temporary structures. . (AP Photo/Richard Vogel, File)

Doug Baldwin made three key plays in the first five minutes of Monday night’s win over the Rams.

If that wasn’t enough, the Seahawks’ undrafted rookie receiver led the team with seven catches for 93 yards and a touchdown.

In this week’s edition of Chalk Talk, Brock Huard shows how Baldwin’s adroit route running and the effects of attrition in the Rams’ secondary were factors in Baldwins’ 29-yard touchdown catch.
