Quarterback Russell Wilson struggles in Seahawks...


The Seattle Seahawks fell to the Baltimore Ravens 30-16, Week 7 at CenturyLink Field. Tied at the half, the Ravens were able to seal the deal in the final two-quarters of play, often capitalizing on the Seahawks’ mistakes.

Quarterback Russell Wilson, who has been enjoying the best start of his career, struggled at times against Baltimore. Wilson gave up his first interception on the year when he was picked off by Ravens’ cornerback Marcus Peters. Peters was able to log a return of 67 yards and a touchdown on the play.

Later in the game, the Seahawks were making a push when Wilson found target D.K. Metcalf who caught the pass but then dropped the ball, allowing Baltimore to scoop and score for the Ravens’ second defensive TD of the day.

Wilson finished the matchup completing under 50% of his passes, connecting on just 20 of 41 attempts for 241 yards and a lone touchdown. His passer rating fell to 65.2 by the end of the game, marking his first outing with a rating less than 100 all season.

Clearly, the blame can’t all fall on Wilson as he was harassed and pressured all day and down starting left tackle, Duane Brown. Wilson did manage three carries for 27 yards on the ground to finish behind running back Chris Carson, the team’s leading rusher.

Wilson will need to rebound quickly if he is to continue his campaign for 2019’s Most Valuable Player.
