1. The Seattle Seahawks have not seen a quarterback like Lamar Jackson

The Seattle Seahawks' defense has improved significantly this year, especially in their run defense. However, they have not seen a rushing attack like Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. In fact, the closest two mobile quarterbacks that the Seahawks have seen are Daniel Jones and Joshua Dobbs. No one is mistaking either for Jackson, but Dobbs had seven rushes for 43 yards against Seattle, and Daniel Jones had ten rushes for 66 yards. Beyond that, it was Matthew Stafford, Bryce Young, Jared Goff, Joe Burrow, and PJ Walker, who did have six rushes for 27 yards.

They have faced a lot of pocket quarterbacks, and any quarterbacks with even the slightest ability to run the ball have been able to get the needed rushing yards on the ground. The Seahawks have a strong secondary, and the Ravens pass attack is not lethal enough to test it. The Seahawks can stop the runs straight up the gut from Gus Edwards, but the legs of Lamar Jackson look to be deciding the factor in this game.
