The Seahawks win! Oh man, does it ever feel good to be saying that! The defense did its job today, and the offense was able to get things done against a high-caliber defense. Tarvaris Jackson completed 63% of his passes and made smart decisions with the football, and his performance was made possible by some great pass blocking by the o-line despite losing RG John Moffitt to a first quarter injury. They also looked great in their run blocking, springing Lynch for some for over 100 yards' worth of tough, bulldozing runs.
Yes, penalties are still a major concern, and we're still waiting to hear about the severity of the injuries suffered by Moffitt, Sidney Rice, and Kam Chancellor, but THE SEAHAWKS WIN!!!

SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle Seahawks rookie right guard John Moffitt has an injured right knee suffered on Seattle's second offensive possession.
Moffitt walked slowly back to the Seahawks locker room Sunday after being examined on the sideline.
The Seahawks offensive line put together one of its most complete performances of the season on Sunday, but also lost one of its starters.

The only good news is that it’s not an ACL injury, so recovery may not be quite as difficult...
Oops, they did it again. In a 22-17 loss to Tarvaris Jackson and the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday evening, the Ravens beat themselves in all three phases in another head-scratching road letdown against a lesser team. This is now officially a trend, one that could threaten to keep the Ravens out of the playoffs if it isn’t reversed.
Seattle Seahawks rookie guard John Moffitt will require season-ending surgery after injuring his knee Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.
Seahawks OG John Moffitt suffered injuries to his MCL and PCL in Sunday's win over the Ravens and will miss the rest of the season, head coach Pete Carroll announced Monday.

Seahawks lose 6-pack to injuries during 22-17 win
Rookie right guard John Moffitt injured his right knee early, while defensive end Anthony Hargrove and backup safety Atari Bigby both left with hamstring injuries.
Baldwin was hurt late in the first half diving for a pass in the back of the end zone.
It lasted 12 plays, covered 62 yards, included two penalties and resulted in zero points. But most would agree that Seattle’s final possession of its 22-17 win over Baltimore at CenturyLink Field on Sunday was probably the most impressive drive the Seahawks have constructed this season. That’s because it began with 5:52 remaining in the game and didn’t end until Tarvaris Jackson...
According to Jason La Canfora, John Moffitt's knee injury is serious enough to require surgery, so he is out for the rest of the year. Backup lineman Lemuel Jeanpierre played well after replacing Moffitt in the first quarter, but this is bad news for the Seahawks. Unlike fellow 2011 draft pick James Carpenter, who has struggled as the team's starting right tackle all...

The Seahawks always have a chance to win when they're playing on their home turf with the 12th Man at full volume, but the Ravens are not an easy team to beat. Baltimore's defense is its usual tough self this year, and this game could get rough in a hurry if the Hawks let themselves get bottled up on offense.
Thankfully, there's some good news, too. The Ravens...
