Geno Smith and the Seattle Seahawks will travel cross-country to face Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday afternoon. The Seahawks and Ravens have played good football to start the regular season and are sleepers to make a deep postseason run.

Seahawks vs. Ravens Key Players to Watch

Seattle Seahawks

Kenneth Walker III: The second-year running back has a tall task ahead of him on Sunday as the Ravens’ defense allows 99.9 rushing yards (12th-best in the NFL) this season. Walker has been excellent this season for Seattle, recording 516 yards and six touchdowns on 117 carries. He will play a huge role in Sunday’s game as he looks to score his first touchdown since Week 6.

Baltimore Ravens

Zay Flowers: The rookie wide receiver has been one of the Ravens’ best pass catchers this season, alongside standout tight end Mark Andrews. Flowers leads the team in receptions (44), targets (61), and receiving yards (461). The former Boston College standout didn’t do much in the Ravens’ seven-point win over the Cardinals (five receptions for 19 yards). However, he’ll be a factor on Sunday against a talented Seahawks’ secondary that features Riq Woolen and Devon Witherspoon.

Seahawks vs. Ravens Prediction and Pick

The Seahawks come into this game as 5.5-point underdogs, which isn’t a bad number, considering this is an early game for them.

Seattle is 2-1 on the road this season, with their only loss coming against the Bengals (17-13). The Seahawks also have D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, and Jaxon Smith-Njiba, who could all give the Ravens’ defense some fits.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks’ defense will have its hands full with Lamar Jackson and the Ravens’ offense, which has struggled inside the red zone at home.

However, Baltimore shouldn’t have any issues, as the Seahawks have the third-highest RZ conversion rate (68.8). I don’t see the Seahawks winning outright, but they have enough on both sides to cover this number.

Pick: Seahawks +5.5
