SEATTLE - The Seahawks will look to improve on one of their best starts in franchise history when they welcome the Baltimore Ravens to CenturyLink Field on Sunday.
Seattle improved to 5-1 with a come-from-behind 32-28 victory over the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.
Russell Wilson threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, Chris Carson ran for over 100 yards for the third week in a row and the Seahawks defense forced four turnovers in the win.
Wilson is off to the best statistical start to a season in his NFL career.
He leads the NFL with a 124.7 quarterback rating and has 17 total touchdowns with zero interceptions through the first six games.
Defensively, the Seahawks will look forward to the return of defensive tackle Jarran Reed, who returned to the team Monday after serving a six-game suspension.
Reed finished last season ranked second on the Seahawks with 10.5 sacks and will look to add depth to an already impressive defensive line.
Sunday's game will also mark the return of Earl Thomas to Seattle. Thomas left the Seahawks to sign a four-year contract worth $55 million with $32 million fully guaranteed with the Baltimore Ravens in March. Click here to read more.

Thomas was the second player drafted in the Pete Carroll and John Schneider era, when the Seahawks selected him with the 14th overall pick in the 2010 draft out of the University of Texas.
In his nine years with the Seahawks, Thomas was named to six Pro Bowls and was named first-team All Pro three times.
Thomas appeared in 137 career games and recorded 30 interceptions in his Seahawks career (playoff statistics included).
The Seahawks lead the all-time series against Baltimore 3-2 and have not lost to the Ravens since November 2003.
