Following back-to-back divisional wins over the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals, the Baltimore Ravens (4-2) now travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks (5-1). Winning in Seattle before an upcoming bye week is crucial for the Ravens, as they look to further distance themselves in the divisional race.
Neither team is able to find the end zone in the first half, and despite rumblings of a shootout, the two teams combine to score less than 40 points.
In a complete shock to the fan base, the Ravens are able to set the edge and generate significant pressure. Tyus Bowser’s snap count increases drastically and he is able to record two sacks and five QB hits.

In his first game in Seattle as a member of the opposing team, Earl Thomas III doubles his interception total on the season by picking off Russell Wilson two times - one of which comes late in the fourth quarter.
Baltimore’s defense shows up big on Sunday against Seattle, limiting MVP candidate Russell Wilson to under 300 passing yards and the offense to under 20 points. Cornerback Marcus Peters makes his first game with the Ravens a memorable one as he grabs an interception - the first of the season for Wilson.
Quarterback Lamar Jackson leads the Ravens rushing attack with over 100 yards on the ground and over 200 in total for the offense yet again. Jackson finds the end zone three times, twice through the air and once on the ground.
