Just throw in the white flag. You have to feel sorry for the Baltimore Ravens, a team depleted with talent and riddled with injuries. And on Sunday, they had to play the red hot Seattle Seahawks led by a quarterback currently playing at MVP level.

Jimmy Clausen was on the receiving end of a 26-0 loss in Seattle as a member of the Chicago Bears earlier in the season, and he was beat down by the Seahawks again, this time in a Baltimore uniform.

It’s been a humiliating season for the Ravens, who were very much in the talk of a deep playoff push after coming close to sending home the Patriots in last year’s Divisional Round. But instead, the Ravens look a team in transition, and they will need to restock a number of positions in the offseason to give Joe Flacco the help he needs when he recovers from a torn ACL.

The next three games? Kansas City, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. The football gods aren’t happy with the Baltimore Ravens for some reason, and they are making the 2015 season an awful one. The offseason can’t come sooner for John Harbaugh’s team.
