Baltimore Ravens vs. Seattle Seahawks: Reasons for Concern

Coming off another disheartening loss to the Miami Dolphins, the Ravens look to rebound against the Seahawks this Sunday in a game that could get ugly quickly.

Coming off another disheartening loss to the Miami Dolphins, the Ravens look to rebound against the Seahawks this Sunday in a game that could get ugly quickly. The Seahawks seem to be back into championship form these past couple of weeks, and the Ravens have been quite the opposite. The Hawks are arguably the hottest team in the league right now after steam rolling a good Vikings team last week, and with all of the Ravens injuries, it has become a perfect storm for a major blowout.

Russell Wilson:

All must pray for the banged up pass rush and secondary this week. Wilson has re-kindled his Super Bowl form, burning opposing defenses with his fantastic ability to extend plays and get his receivers open for huge plays. It doesn't help that the Ravens secondary has had a bad habit of allowing big plays, stemming from the inability to rush the passer and stop opposing quarterbacks from scrambling, Russell Wilson's specialty.

Seahawks Defense:

After starting the year with a few people questioning whether Seattle's defense was still good or not, they have certainly hushed their critics in the last few weeks, nearly shutting out the Vikings last Sunday and standing stout when necessary against Pittsburgh before that. Playing Matt Schaub, who seems to love throwing touchdowns to the wrong team, the Seahawks will capitalize on any opportunity to increase Schaub's record for consecutive games with Pick-6's.

To all Ravens fans out there, please do not torment yourself with watching this game, it is going to be a massive blowout resulting in the end of the Ravens' streak of games ending with a 1 possession margin. Maybe entice yourself with the misery that is the Steelers-Bengals game this weekend and hope a meteor hits the field.
