Baltimore defeated Seattle 37-3 in Week 9 to claim their fourth consecutive victory. The Ravens offense amassed 515 yards from scrimmage and 6.9 yards per play, while the defense limited the Seahawks to six total first downs and 3.2 yards per play. The combination of a dominant rushing offense and a smothering third-down defense culminated in a 76-49 snap advantage and a more than 20-minute time of possession advantage.

Baltimore is tied for first place in the AFC with Kansas City at 7-2 after hitting their stride in recent weeks. They will have the potential to extend their division lead with home games against Cleveland and Cincinnati.
