The game started off well enough as the two teams battled it out fitfully in the first half, before going into the locker rooms down 14-6. The Ravens started off slowly, but allowed backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen get into a rhythm where he would end the game 23 of 40 for 274 yards and an interception. Not a perfect day for the Ravens quarterback in his first start, his effort was a lot better than fans were expecting.
The Ravens defense, much like the offense got off to a slow start allowing Russell Wilson and company to drive down the field 80 yards for a touchdown. Doing whatever they wanted on the drive, Wilson would find wide receiver Tyler Lockett for the final 8-yard touchdown pass that drew first blood. The Ravens would answer that with a drive of their own that put the game back into contention 7-3 on the back of a Justin Tucker field goal.
However, Russell Wilson and the Seahawks were routinely able to put up touchdowns, while the Ravens had to settle for field goals. After the half, the Seahawks defense tightened up by harassing quarterback Jimmy Clausen. Meanwhile the Seahawks offense continued to chug along putting up two touchdown passes to Tyler Lockett and three touchdown passes to Doug Baldwin as Baltimore's defense looked lost and confused.
This loss bumps the Ravens down to 4-9. The 29 point defeat is the second largest home defeat in team history according to Baltimore Times reporter Turron Davenport.
