Ravens vs. Seahawks: 4 Things We Learned from Baltimore's 22-17 Loss

The Baltimore Ravens suffered another letdown as they lost to the Seattle Seahawks 22-17. Just like their loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 2, this loss came right after playing and beating the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Furthermore, the Ravens are showing some alarming patterns when it comes to their losses this season. All of their three losses have come against teams with losing records, in games which they are favored and right after big wins.

The Ravens lost to the Titans after beating the Steelers, lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars after beating Houston and, just today, lost to the Seahawks after their second win against the Steelers last week.

Against the Seahawks, the defense surprisingly struggled to stop the run but was solid for the most part, and the Ravens offense was again extremely inconsistent and seemed to lack any sort of balance.

Even with the poor play by the offense, the Ravens were still in the game and probably could have pulled off the win relatively easily if the special teams hadn’t been so bad. Wide receiver David Reed fumbled twice on kickoff returns and gave the Seahawks two easy scores. With the offense and defense struggling, those turnovers were too much to overcome.

There’s no question there’s a pattern, but what exactly is it? Why have the Ravens lost three games this season to losing teams? The answers to those questions are actually a little clearer after this loss. We may have learned more about the Ravens from this loss than any other game so far, so let’s look at what we learned from the Ravens 22-17 loss to the Seahawks.
