A 2-6 Seahawks team has no right to beat a vastly superior 6-2, potentially playoff-bound Baltimore Ravens teams. But, based upon the transitive properties of football crapiness, there’s an outside chance it could happen.
You see, the Ravens tend to get lazy against crappy opposing teams. Two weeks ago, they barely squeaked out a win over the lowly Cardinals. Two weeks earlier, the Ravens somehow, defying the natural order of the football universe, actually lost to the 2-6 Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars
Much like the Jaguars, the Seahawks are bottom of the barrel, 2-6 team this year. But the Hawks might actually be less terrible than the Jaguars (an argument I’ll admit may be more rooted in homerism than actual statistics), so I guess now’s as good a time as any for the Seahawks to come alive and offer up a humiliating defeat to another a vastly superior team.
To recap: Seahawks > Cardinals + Seahawks > Jaguars ÷ Jaguars > Ravens = Seahawks > Ravens.
Sure, the Ravens defense is terrifying (and led by an accused murderer), and the Hawks’ offense is godawful, but logic has no place in football.
