Seahawks 35, Ravens 6

Wilson, Seattle on roll, if not on run

BALTIMORE — As long as Russell Wilson continues to fling touchdown passes at a dizzying rate, the Seahawks might survive their shortage of running backs.

Wilson threw for five touchdowns — matching his career high set Nov. 29 against Pittsburgh — three to Doug Baldwin as Seattle wore down injury-depleted Baltimore for its fourth straight win.

"Guys were making plays all over the field," Wilson said. "And the offensive line is giving me enough time to make those decisions and get the ball out on time."

Seattle's standout rookie running back, Thomas Rawls, broke his left ankle in the first quarter and is out for the season. Former Central High standout DuJuan Harris took over and ran for 42 yards on 18 carries but lost a fumble. Normal starter Marshawn Lynch missed a fourth straight game with an abdomen injury.

Baltimore is assured of its first losing season since coach John Harbaugh took over in 2008.
