Earl Thomas took the field at CenturyLink for the first time as a Raven. Jarran Reed shook off the dust and played in his first game of the Seahawks season. Two of the NFL’s elite quarterbacks went head-to-head.
There were a lot of fascinating storylines heading into the Seattle Seahawks meeting with the Baltimore Ravens in Week 7, but only one mattered when it was all said and done on Sunday: Would the Seahawks let these narratives spoil their hot streak?
It appeared as if the noise was too much for Seattle to handle. Lamar Jackson proved why he deserves to be in the MVP conversation. Earl Thomas taunted his former team, and even Wilson couldn't save his Seahawks in this one, recording his first interception of the season.
Let’s take a look at the best moments on social media from the Seahawks 30-16 loss to the Ravens. Seahawks Insider Joe Fann shared his initial reactions to the game here.
Seattle got on the board for the first time when Russell Wilson hit Tyler Lockett for an 8-yard touchdown.

Doug Baldwin was the most underrated receiver in the NFL, retired and Tyler Lockett immediately took over the mantle.— Will Brinson (@WillBrinson) October 20, 2019
Marlon Humphrey has dominated some top wide receivers this year, but he's having a tough time with Tyler Lockett.— Ryan Mink (@ryanmink) October 20, 2019

Then, the Corgi Cup happened. That’s right. The Seahawks brought at least a dozen adorable smoosh faces to the field and let them race each other. It was everything we could have hoped for and more.
