Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Monday, November 6 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Media Reactions To The Seahawks' Week 9 Loss In Baltimore
The Seahawks two-game win streak was snapped on Sunday with a 37-3 loss on the road against the Baltimore Ravens. The Seahawks will take the hard lessons learned in that game back home, then turn their attention to a Week 10 home matchup against the Washington Commanders.
Seattle was held without a touchdown for the first time in 2023, with the 34-point difference being the Seahawks' largest defeat of the year and since 2017.
Linebacker Boye Mafe provided some silver lining for Seattle, forcing sack No. 6 on the year on a first half strip-sack, making his own recovery. The play extended Mafe's streak of consecutive games with a sack to six, tying Seahawks Legend Michael Sinclair (1997-1998) for longest in franchise history. On the offensive end, rookie wideout Jaxon Smith-Njigba led all receivers with six receptions for 63 yards on seven targets.
Coach Pete Carroll addressed what he told his team about facing the challenge ahead.
"This game is already over with and done," said Carroll. "And you can't do anything about it. It's about what we do on Tuesday and Wednesday to get back on track and not let this define us."
Seattle will face the Washington Commanders in Week 10 back at home, where the Seahawks are 3-1 in 2023 at Lumen Field.
