Ravens rough up Seahawks in 37-3 win

The Seattle Seahawks ran into a buzzsaw named the Baltimore Runs. The Seahawks managed just three points against the no.1 ranked defense in the league. The bottom line is the   Baltimore Ravens roughed up the Seahawks on both sides of the ball It was a dismal day for a Seahawks offense that managed just 152 yards and was 1-12 on third downs. 


Geno Smith had his worst day in memory completing 13 of 28  passes for 157 yards, one interception and a fumble. The inept performance was not all Smith fault. The offensive struggled to keep  a clean pocket for Smit,  running backs Kenneth Walker and Zach Charbonnet.  Injuries have derailed the offensive line’s ability to gel as a unit.


Poor tackling and slow recognition of the Raven’s run splits led to lethargic play by the defense.  The Ravens entered the game with the top rushing offense in the league due to their ability to disguise runs from the same formation.  The Ravens racked up  298 rushing yards.   Ravens running back  Keaton  Mitchell rambled for 138 yards and one touchdown on nine carries. Quarterback Lamar Jackson rushed for 60 yards and completed 21 of 25 yards for 187 yards. Jackson’s ability to disguise the pass from a run formation made it difficult for the Seahawks to sustain any kind of consistent pass rush.  The Seahawk’s defense forced two first-half fumbles which went to waste due to the offense’s inability to move the ball against a stout Raven’s defense.
