Week 14: Seattle Seahawks – Dec. 13, 2015 (8:30 p.m.)

2014 Record: 12-4
Head-to-Head Record: 2-2
Last Meeting: Ravens 17 – Seahawks 22 (Nov. 13, 2011)

The Seahawks are arguably the toughest opponent on the schedule, coming off of back-to-back appearances in the Super Bowl. A battle of two of the top defenses in recent history, the Ravens will have the difficult task of trying to slow down the one-two punch of Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch.

The Ravens took the defeat in the last matchup between the two teams, but what made it sting was how they lost. The Seahawks were led by Steven Hauschka, who kicked five goals in the win. That is the same Hauschka that the Ravens once employed, but cut after four games in 2009. This game could be a preview of Super Bowl 50 and will be a good barometer of how the Ravens will stack up against the elite teams as they enter the final stretch of the season.

It is crunch time at this point of the Ravens season as the remaining three games are against opponents whom many feel could be contenders also. The final weeks might make or break the season as a whole as they battle for playoff contention.

Next: Week 15
