The Kansas City Chiefs take on the Baltimore Ravens in what could be a preview of the AFC Championship game. Kansas City is 1-0 after narrowly beating the Cleveland Browns 33-29.

Had it not been for a second-half comeback, the Chiefs would’ve easily lost that game. They get a chance against the Ravens to start the game out on the right foot. However, the Ravens are looking to wash the taste of Week 1 out of their mouth.

The Ravens had an uncharacteristic game against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 1. The offense struggled late, and a fumble by Lamar Jackson ended the game. The Ravens lost 33-27 and now face one of the league’s best teams, the Kansas City Chiefs. They’ll need to take care of the ball much better against Kansas City.

Chiefs vs. Ravens Week 2 Preview

These two have a long and recent history going against each other. This is mainly due to how often they meet each other in the playoffs. The Chiefs and Ravens rule the AFC, but they had a strange start to the 2021 season.

The Chiefs looked sluggish in the first half, scoring just 10 points. By halftime, they found themselves down 22-10 and had to battle back to win the game. They’ll want to make sure they don’t give that kind of breathing room to the Ravens on Sunday night.

Truth be told, had it not been for a mistake by Lamar Jackson, the Ravens would’ve won last week. It was an odd fumble on his part, as he’s usually better at protecting the ball. The reason why the Ravens were in that predicament in the first place was terrible defense.

Derek Carr had a great day against the secondary, so imagine how Patrick Mahomes will do. If the Ravens want any shot at winning this game, the defense better learns to lock up.

Chiefs vs. Ravens Over/Under Prediction

Chiefs 38 - Ravens 30

These two teams have super-powered offenses that the rest of the NFL wishes they had. However, they both also have lackluster defenses that rely on the offense to bail them out.

The Ravens defense had an essential stop last week, but only after the Raiders drove down the field. If they give Mahomes that kind of opportunity, the Ravens will easily lose this game.

Kansas City is playing on the road, but their fans travel well. They’ve had the upper advantage for years on Baltimore because of Patrick Mahomes.

They’ll look to target the secondary much like the Raiders did in Week 1. Since Kansas City only needs to win by four points, this is a pretty straightforward game.

Extra Points

1. These two teams last met in the 2020 season. The Chiefs won 34-20.

2. The spread was Baltimore -3.5 the last time these two met.

3. Over the previous three games, Kansas City has a perfect 3-0 record.

Best Bet: Over 54.5 Points (-110)

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Baltimore Ravens

Patrick Mahomes passed for 385 yards and four touchdowns and also rushed for a score as the Kansas City Chiefs recorded a 34-20 victory over the host Baltimore Ravens in Monday night's showdown between two of the NFL's best teams.

Mahomes completed 31 of 42 passes and repeatedly spread the ball around as five Kansas City players topped 60 receiving yards. Left tackle Eric Fisher and fullback Anthony Sherman caught touchdown passes as did receivers Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman.

Chris Jones stood out on the defensive side with two of Kansas City's four sacks and he also two forced fumbles as the Chiefs started 3-0 for the fourth consecutive season.

Lamar Jackson completed 15 of 28 passes for a mere 97 yards and one touchdown for Baltimore (2-1). The passing output was Jackson's lowest in 25 games as a starter. He also had 83 rushing yards on nine carries for the Ravens, who also received a kickoff return score from Devin Duvernay.

The Ravens had just 228 yards of total offense after averaging 394 yards and 35.5 points over their first two games. The Chiefs had 517 yards while holding a 29-16 edge in first downs and converting 10 of 13 third-down opportunities.

Travis Kelce led Kansas City with 87 receiving yards on six receptions. Also topping 60 were Hardman (four for 81), Hill (five for 77), Clyde Edwards-Helaire (five for 70, plus 20 for 64 rushing) and Sammy Watkins (seven for 62).

Baltimore trailed by 17 at halftime but got back into the game on a 42-yard field goal by Justin Tucker with 6:13 left in the third quarter and Jackson's 5-yard touchdown throw to Nick Boyle on the first play of the final stanza to pull within 27-20.

But Kansas City answered with a 13-play, 75-yard drive and coach Andy Reid pulled out one of his trick plays on first-and-goal from the Ravens' 2-yard line. Fisher pretended he was blocking and then slid into the left flat to catch the scoring pass from Mahomes on the tackle-eligible play with 8:14 remaining to make it a 14-point margin.

The Ravens reached the Chiefs' 13 on their next drive but Ben Niemann and Frank Clark sacked Jackson on back-to-back downs (second and third) to account for 18 yards in losses and Jackson's fourth-and-24 pass was incomplete with 4:55 left to end the suspense.

Mahomes passed for three touchdowns and ran for another as the Chiefs held a 27-10 halftime lead.

After Tucker capped Baltimore's first possession with a 26-yard field goal, Kansas City moved 75 yards on six plays with Mahomes scoring the touchdown on a 3-yard run.

The Chiefs drove 68 yards on 13 plays on their second chance with the ball and the drive ended with Mahomes tossing a 5-yard shovel pass to Sherman to make it 13-3 with 12:52 left in the first half.

Duvernay displayed his speed on the ensuing kickoff by returning it down the right sideline for a 93-yard touchdown. But Kansas City's offense kept clicking as Mahomes threw a 20-yard scoring pass to Hill and a 49-yarder on third-and-14 to Hardman to account for the 17-point advantage.
