Players of the game
• Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch rushed 32 times for 109 yards. His only two 100-yard regular-season rushing performances as a Seahawk have come the past two weeks.
• Seahawks kicker Steven Hauschka made five field goals, matching the franchise record shared by three other players.
• Ravens tight end Ed Dickson caught 10 passes and scored Baltimore's only two touchdowns.
Play of the game
If players still wore jockstraps, Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis would have been wearing his around his ankles after Lynch faked him out late in the fourth quarter. The Seahawks faced a third-and-five at the Baltimore 46 with 3:10 remaining. Lynch caught a quick pass from Tarvaris Jackson and then made Lewis and his Baltimore teammate Jarret Johnson miss the tackle. Badly. That 8-yard gain was the first of three consecutive first downs Lynch converted on the drive that clinched the victory.
Seattle's lead was down to five points, and the Seahawks were a down away from having to punt the ball back to Baltimore with just less than 5 minutes remaining. Facing third-and-five, Jackson completed a pass to Golden Tate for a 24-yard gain. It was the first of four first downs the Seahawks gained on the drive, which allowed Seattle to run the clock out.
• The Seahawks scored a first-quarter touchdown for the first time since Oct. 9.
• Ahead 19-7 at the break, Seattle held its first halftime lead of the season.
• Seattle scored 10 points in the first quarter against the Ravens, who had allowed 13 first-quarter points total in the first eight games of the season.
• The Seahawks were called for 13 penalties, their most in any game since Sept. 9, 2002.
