Baltimore Ravens: 3 Things Learned from 22-17 Loss to Seattle Seahawks

After last week's victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, John Harbaugh told his team that the significance of that win would be determined by their performance against the Seattle Seahawks today.

Well in that case, the win against the Steelers must be considered insignificant and possibly a fluke victory because there were almost no similarities between the team that beat the Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens that played in yesterday's 22-17 loss. 

One thing that is not a fluke is the Ravens recent performance against the league's worst teams. Before this year they had only lost to one sub .500 team under Harbaugh. This year, all three of their losses have come to teams that were under .500 at the time they played them. 

Several early fumbles gave the Seahawks good starting position and put the Ravens in a 12 point hole going into halftime. Even with this being their third straight week of attempting a furious comeback, they were unable to do so in a noisy Seattle stadium. In fact, the offense didn't even get a chance for a game-winning drive, as the defense couldn't stop Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch. 

So yet again the Ravens are left to pick up the pieces from another abysmal loss. This one hurts even more as they are now essentially tied with the Cincinnati Bengals and the Steelers for first in the extremely competitive AFC North. Because of this, margin for error will be very small in the seven remaining weeks of the season. 

Here are three things that I learned from yesterday's loss.
