Ravens dismantle the Hawks 37-3

Entering Sunday’s game against the Seahawks, the Ravens were sitting at the top of the AFC North standings with a one-game lead over the Bengals and Steelers. Baltimore defense dominated Seattle, as they only allowed 41 rushing yards while the Ravens offense rushed for a remarkable 298 yards.

Lamar Jackson protected the ball as he didn’t throw any interceptions and was very efficient, going 21-26, adding 60 yards on the ground. Sunday’s game wasn’t only big for the Ravens, but it was also big for their receiver, Odell Beckham, due to it being his birthday. OBJ snagged five receptions and a touchdown, which was his first as a Raven. Baltimore’s defense held Seattle under 200 total yards, forced an interception, and forced a fumble that they also recovered. The Ravens defense came into Sunday ranked second in the NFL in yards allowed per game with only 276.5 ypg. Sunday’s win was tremendously important for the Ravens, as they have two huge divisional matchups coming up next. Cleveland will be heading to Baltimore next week, and they will be looking to take the lead in the AFC North with a win.

The Browns were the only team to allow fewer yards per game than the Ravens entering Sunday, so the matchup between these two teams seems to be a defensive battle. The Ravens will be seeking their fifth consecutive win and will be looking to take another step towards the division title. Baltimore’s receiving group will be one of the keys to success for the rest of the season, as many people have questioned whether the Ravens surrounded quarterback Lamar Jackson with enough talent on the outside. Now that half of the season is behind the Ravens, only time will tell if they are ready to make a real playoff push behind their leader, Lamar Jackson
