Seahawks vs Ravens: 5 takeaways from Seattle’s blowout win

1 of 4

The Seattle Seahawks dominated the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday for their fourth straight victory. 

It was an interesting Sunday. The Seattle Seahawks won an important road game in dominant fashion, and crept closer to locking up a playoff spot. They also lost a key player, and will have to scramble to find a replacement in next couple of days.

Due to the game being flexed out of Sunday Night Football, I didn’t get to see the game live. I had plans with the family that couldn’t be broken. Luckily NFL GamePass came through later in the day so I could watch the game.

Here are my 5 takeaways from Seattle’s dominant win:

1. The Thomas Rawls injury hurts

Seattle’s rookie running back was dominating the NFL this year. He was leading the league in yards per carry, and certainly looked liked the future of the Seahawks at running back.

Now he’s out for the year, and faces a very tough offseason of rehab to try and get back for next year. The Seahawks will also need to bring in another back this offseason in case Rawls isn’t ready to start next season.

The Seahawks also lack anyone to replace him. Harris showed very little in his first extended action of the year. There also aren’t many players available that have the ability to carry the team.

The Seahawks are going to have to lean on Russell Wilson and the passing game for a few weeks and hope that Lynch can get healthy before the playoffs.
