The lack of a run game made a tough day even more challenging

Seattle has proven that when they have a reliable run game, starting from Kenneth Walker III, their chances of winning are much higher than they ordinarily would be.

Unfortunately, in Baltimore, the offensive line's problematic protection contributed to almost no opportunities on the ground, leading to 15 carries for just 28 yards with an average of 1.9 yards per carry.

With a tough outing for Geno Smith, his day was made even worse without the ability to run the football throughout the entire game. All the pressure was put on the quarterback to overcome the challenges of the offense, making it an even easier day for the Ravens' defense.
