After falling behind 10-0, the Baltimore Ravens got on the board early in the second quarter against the Seattle Seahawks. Joe Flacco connected with Ed Dickson multiple times on catches of three, 15, five, six and 19 yards to drive Seattle into the red zone; after Brandon Browner and Earl Thomas botched up an interception for Seattle, Baltimore struck with a Ray Rice touchdown throw when all the Seahawks defenders bit on the run play; the Ravens RB then found Dickson uncovered in the end zone.
Seattle's special teams is making the difference. A Tarvaris Jackson throw to Doug Baldwin went for 50 yards and set up a Steven Hauschka field goal. On the next possession for the Seahawks, Seattle got good field position off a bad punt by the Ravens, setting up another Hauschka field goal. Then David Reed fumbled another kickoff return (his second on the day), and the Seattle placekicker put his fourth FG on the board to give Seattle a double-digit lead at halftime.
