Gus Edwards and the Baltimore Ravens had an extraordinary day in their rushing game, setting a historic milestone against the Seattle Seahawks. On Sunday, running back Gus Edwards propelled the Ravens to a record-breaking performance on the ground.

In their commanding 37-3 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, the Ravens managed to accumulate a remarkable 298 rushing yards. Edwards scored two touchdowns during the game, bringing his total to six touchdowns in his last three matches. This achievement equals the records set by Marcus Robinson in 2003 and Willis McGahee in 2009, making it the most touchdowns scored over a three-game span in Ravens’ team history, according to ESPN’s Jamison Hensley.

Edwards found the end zone twice in the second quarter, providing Baltimore with 7-0 and 14-0 leads. He concluded the game with 52 carries for a total of 205 yards, with a significant portion of his yards coming from a 42-yard run during the third quarter’s opening play.

With his two touchdowns in this game, Edwards has now scored seven touchdowns this season, matching his career-high in just nine games.

It wasn’t only Edwards who took advantage of Seattle’s vulnerable rushing defense on Sunday. Undrafted rookie Keaton Mitchell also had an impressive performance, gaining 138 yards on just nine carries. He broke free for a 40-yard touchdown run at the end of the third quarter, extending the Ravens’ lead to 30-3. Mitchell also had a 60-yard rush during the game.

This remarkable day for the Ravens on the ground marked the 27th time they’ve rushed for over 200 yards in a game since drafting quarterback Lamar Jackson in 2018.

In a contest that was anticipated to be a close battle between two first-place teams, the Ravens dominated their NFC opponent for the entire 60 minutes. Quarterback Geno Smith barely managed to surpass the 150-yard passing mark, and the team could only muster 28 yards on 15 rushing attempts.

With this victory, Baltimore improved to a 7-2 record and scored over 30 points for the third consecutive game.
