The Baltimore Ravens will look to avoid the upset this weekend when they travel cross-country to play the Seattle Seahawks. The Week 10 picks and predictions from NFL experts indicate that an upset does not look likely.
The Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks will meet up on Sunday, fresh off of the visiting team's comeback victory on Sunday Night Football when Joe Flacco connected with Torrey Smith late in the fourth quarter. That bit of momentum might not have been needed against the Seahawks, but this week's NFL picks and predictions lean that way regardless.
In fact, Sports Illustrated's Peter King just decided to throw out random facts in his weekly column rather than his thoughts on the actual game. He apparently believes it will be a blowout.
I love the NFL releases in games that have that blowout smell, when the underdog is propped up. In the Week 10 NFL Capsules sent to the media comes this gem that will have a major bearing on this game, about Seattle's Raheem Brock: "DE Raheem Brock has faced Bal. 5 times & his teams are 5-0." I'm sure John Harbaugh will tell his players Saturday night how much trouble they're in because Raheem Brock has never lost to the Ravens.
