Ravens and the Chiefs – Round Two Coming Week Three on Monday Night in Baltimore

Through two weeks of the season the competition level for the Baltimore Ravens has slowly gotten better each week.

Week one it was the sorely unprepared and undisciplined Cleveland Browns, who didn’t seem to put up much of a fight as the Ravens led by 18 by halftime at 24-6.

Sunday in Houston it was J.J. Watt, DeShaun Watson and the Texans, but again the Ravens were able to hold them in check for the most part and by the time it was over walk out of Houston with a 33-16 win.

Now though, the competition will get tougher – maybe as tough as it can possibly get.

Monday night the Ravens will play host to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, a team that the Ravens had to watch hoist a Lombardi Trophy a few months back that they felt would be going to them.

The oddsmakers currently have the Ravens as an early 2.5-3 point favorite to beat the Chiefs, but for the most part it’ll be an even game by the time the two teams kickoff at 8:15pm ET Monday evening.

The Ravens were one of the teams that nearly got it done against the Chiefs last year in an early season battle at Arrowhead Stadium.

It was another coming out party that day for Lamar Jackson, as the Ravens and NFL MVP from a season ago was on fire, throwing for 267 yards, and rushing for 46 yards and a score.

The Baltimore defense though could not stop Mahomes, as he threw for 374 yards and three scores as the Ravens fell by a final of 33-28.

You got a sense that day you were seeing the best two teams in the AFC in 2019, and standings wise by the time the season ended that was the case.

If the Ravens had not choked in the divisional round against the upstart Tennessee Titans, they would have hosted the AFC Championship against Mahomes and the Chiefs.

Instead, they had to sit and watch as the Chiefs got the honor of hosting the game for the second straight season, but this time they got it done against the Titans, and eventually took care of the 49’ers in the Super Bowl.

It should be a fun week leading up to round two Monday night at M&T Bank Stadium, and even though the stands won’t be full, it’ll be an electric atmosphere as two teams that have unfinished business play what could be the best game of 2020.
