After containing the dangerous Antonio Brown last week, the Ravens will try to limit Leon Washington. The former Jet is averaging just 22.7 yards per return, but he returned three kicks for touchdowns last season and has seven in his career. Washington is sixth in the NFL in punt returns, averaging 12 yards. The Ravens, looking for a boost from their return game, got one last week as David Reed averaged 32.3 yards on four kicks. He is third in the NFL, averaging 30.2 yards per return. The Seahawks' place-kicker is Steven Hauschka (right) who was dumped by the Ravens during the 2009 season in favor of Billy Cundiff. Hauschka is 10-for-12 on field-goal attempts while Cundiff is 26-for-29 for the Ravens. His 51-yard field goal last week was only the fourth 50-plus-yard NFL field goal in Heinz Field history. The Seahawks' Jon Ryan is sixth in the league in average yards per punt (49) and fifth with 14 punts inside the 20. The Ravens' Sam Koch has 11 punts inside the 20. EDGE: EVEN
