Prediction: Seahawks 27, Ravens 10
Comment: The Seahawks have struggled at times this season, but they are the superior team. Expect this to be the first Ravens' loss by a double-digit margin.

Prediction: Seahawks 27, Ravens 13
Comment: The Ravens' improved defense gets its biggest test since the bye, and hangs in, but a non-offensive touchdown probably makes this one the first two-score loss of the season.

 



Mike Preston

Prediction: Seahawks 30, Ravens 14
Comment: After nearly two months of playing some poor NFL teams, the Ravens are back playing the top contenders in the final month of the season. The Seahawks are playing well and the Ravens are playing hard. Guts will only take you so far in the NFL, and the Ravens have run out of time.

 



Alexander Pyles
Ravens Editor
Prediction: Seahawks 27, Ravens 10
Comment: If Joe Flacco, Steve Smith Sr. and Terrell Suggs were around, the still-flawed Ravens would lose but at least make this a game. These Ravens are too injured and have too little to play for. This sure feels like the weekend when their NFL-record-setting string of close games ends.

 



Peter Schmuck
Columnist
Prediction: Seahawks 23, Ravens 13
Comment: The Ravens will have a solid enough defensive scheme to keep this game from getting out of hand, but that's about it. Marc Trestman's offense is going to have trouble making much happen.

 



Childs Walker
Reporter
Prediction: Seahawks 31, Ravens 16
Comment: The Seahawks seem to be reasserting themselves as one of the best team in the NFL at the same time the Ravens are more banged up than ever. It's hard to imagine a hurting Matt Schaub keeping up with a surging Russell Wilson.

 



Jeff Zrebiec
Ravens Beat Writer
Prediction: Seahawks 31, Ravens 10
Comment: This is a mismatch any way you swing it. The Ravens just don't have enough firepower on either side of the ball to threaten the Seahawks, who are rounding into postseason form.
