Seahawks fall to No. 12 in Touchdown Wire’s Week 8...


The Seattle Seahawks dropped to 5-2 on the year after losing to the Baltimore Ravens Sunday at CenturyLink Field. As a result, the Seahawks have slipped from No. 7 to No. 12 in the Touchdown Wire’s Week 8 NFL power rankings.

“Pete Carroll said midweek that the key to facing Baltimore’s run game is to stay disciplined, read your keys and do your job,” writes Doug Farrar. “The Seahawks tried their best to do all those things, but Lamar Jackson still ran all over them. When Jackson combines great throws with out-of structure runs, as he did in the Ravens’ 30-16 win, there’s no adequate defense for him.”

“Far more disconcerting for Carroll has to be the pick-six Russell Wilson threw to Marcus Peters, and the fumble by rookie receiver D.K. Metcalf that Ravens cornerback Marlon Humpries returned 18 yards for a touchdown,” Farrar continues. “Carroll preaches ball security above all, and this was the opposite. The Seahawks travel to Atlanta to get better against the Falcons, but this team has defensive questions that transcend a couple of offensive turnovers, and the extent to which the Ravens exposed that should be Carroll’s primary concern at this point.”

Seattle has a chance for redemption on the road Sunday in Atlanta – kickoff is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. PT.
