Seattle - After the Baltimore Ravens first win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, they came back and loss a tough one to the Tennessee Titans. After their second win over the Steelers, they come back and loss a tough one to the Seattle Seahawks.
The Baltimore Ravens (6-3) visited the Seattle Seahawks (3-6) in a Week 10 matchup that looked to be in the Ravens favor. Just when you think the Ravens are about to start soaring, they hit a rough patch and come crashing back to earth. This one was a tough one as Marshawn Lynch gave them a heavy dose of the run game.
Seattle got the ball to start the game and Marshawn Lynch (32 carries, 109 yards, 1 TD) started with back-to-back carried for a total of 5-yards. The drive then stalled and they were forced to punt after a quick three and out.
The Ravens got the ball and started with a [url= t=_blank]Ray Rice (5 carries, 27 yards) run for 1-yard. Torrey Smith then had his only run of the game for 16-yards. David Reed then had a run of his own for 16-yards with his only carry of the game. Baltimore got into Seattle territory and had to settle for a field-goal. Billy Cundiff came on to kick a 50-yard field-goal which was short and no good.
The Seahawks took over and Tarvaris Jackson (17/27, 217 yards) hit Zach Miller (3 receptions, 24 yards) with a 6-yard pass. Jackson and Lynch (5 receptions, 58 yards) then hooked up for a 21 and 23-yard pass to get two firstdowns. Lynch finished the drive off with a 1-yard run that made it 7-0.
On the ensuing kickoff, David reed is back to field the kick and he fumbles on the Baltimore 17-yardline. Michael Robinson forces the fumble and Ben Obomanu recovers it for the Seahawks. Seattle gets the ball with great field position, and they give it to Lynch four straight times. Lynch gains a firstdown, but fails to get into the endzone. Steven Hauschka comes on for a 22-yard field-goal and makes it for it to be a 10-0 lead.
Both teams then traded punts until the start of the second quarter. Joe Flacco (29/52, 255 yards, 1 TD, 1 Int) used his arm to get them down the field by hitting Ed Dickson (10 receptions, 79 yards, 2 TD’s) for a 15-yard pass. Flacco and the Ravens used the no huddle shotgun to get the ball moving down the field. Dickson and Flacco connected a lot on this drive, but it was Rice to Dickson that put points on the board. Rice finished the drive with a 1-yard pass to Dickson to make it a 10-7 game.
Lynch started the drive for the Seahawks with a two 3-yard runs. Jackson then connected with Doug Baldwin on his only catch of the day for 50-yards. The drive stalled and Hauschka came on for a 38-yard field-goal. The field-goal was good and the Seahawks took a 13-7 lead with 5:39 left.
The Ravens went three and out on their ensuing drive and was forced to punt the ball away. Seattle took over and moved the ball right back down the field. With decent field position after the punt, the Seahawks did not have far to go so they could get another Hauschka field-goal. With a couple of quick passes by Jackson, Hauschka came on and made a 39-yarder to give the Seahawks a 16-7 lead.
On the ensuing kickoff David Reed fumbled again, and gave the Seahawks great field position. Even with great position again, Seattle could not take advantage with a touchdown. They once again had to settle for a field-goal by Hauschka. He came on and made a 35-yard field-goal to make it a 19-7 game.
The Ravens had a chance to score before halftime with Flacco hitting Smith (3 receptions, 28 yards) for 14-yard gain. Flacco then hit Anquan Boldin (2 receptions, 22 yards) for a 17-yard gain. Billy Cundiff came on for a 52-yard field-goal, and missed it wide right.
Baltimore got the ball to open the second half, and Flacco hit Dennis Pitta (4 receptions, 49 yards) for a 15-yard gain. Flacco dropped back for another pass, and had it intercepted by David Hawthorne who returned it 34-yards before being pushed out of bounds.
Seattle took over and they used Lynch to get the ball going on the drive. After three plays, the Seahawks brought Hauschka back on to make another field-goal. This one was a 30-yard field-goal by Hauschka that made it a 22-7 lead.
With 5:46 to go in the third quarter, the Ravens went into the no huddle shotgun to get the ball moving down the field. Flacco used his arm almost the whole drive as he hit Ricky Williams (3 receptions, 24 yards) for a 12-yard catch. Flacco then hit Pitta for a 17-yard gain before Rice had an 8-yard run. The drive later stalled, and Cundiff came on to kick a 35-yard field-goal to make it a 22-10 game.
At the 9:06 mark in the fourth quarter Baltimore got the ball back after the teams traded punts. Flacco hit Dickson for a 13-yard pitch and catch.
