The Baltimore Ravens have seen a new rash of injuries hit them this week that puts an already damaged team to the island of misfit toys. Left tackle Eugene Monroe went to injured reserve while the Ravens will be starting Jimmy Clausen at quarterback because of injuries to veteran Matt Schaub.
Few people expect the Ravens to even compete against the Seahawks, much less win, but here are our predictions for this game. What is your prediction and final score?
With Clausen at the helm, this is probably the worst the Ravens have looked all season. Going up against one of the best defenses in the league on Sunday, it also marks the toughest matchups the Ravens will have all season. Sadly, home games haven't meant what they used to a while ago, so I can't even say that being in M&T Bank Stadium will charge up the players and give them a better fighting chance. The Ravens will run Terrance West and Javorius Allen into a brick wall all game long as they fear throwing it. The game gets out of hand quickly and the Ravens have the worst loss of their season.
Ravens 10 - Seahawks 35
Clausen will manage the game and the Ravens have a well crafted, informed game plan. The Seahawks are susceptible to the run and Earl Thomas, quiet as it is kept, has lost a step. The Ravens will dink and dink and run a lot, but will challenge him in single high and get some success. With one of the two Chris's. The entire world thinks the Ravens will not win, but that locker room knows they can.
Ravens 25 - Seahawks 21
Love my boy Chris here but just not gonna happen, the mixture of all the injuries plus an incompetent quarterback= blowout.
Ravens 10 - Seahawks 42
Jimmy Clausen vs. the Seahawks. It's a blowout. Hide the valuables and send the kids away
I think the Ravens give this one a game. They haven't lost by more than 8 points this season. I don't think the Seahawks will put up 30 on the Ravens, but I think that they will win.
Ravens 10 - Seahawks 24
Defense looks decent but on the field a lot.
