Can we stop comparing Oakland and Baltimore:
Oakland, #2 in the NFL in rushing, 4.9 ypc (better than KC).
Baltimore, #14 in rushing, 3.8 ypc (ypc is 28th in the NFL).
Oakland #2 in the NFL with 47 sacks
Baltimore 4th worst in the NFL with 27 sacks
Baltimore is a great team, particularly they are good against the run, #5 in the NFL. That is the challenge that is posed to the Chiefs, running the football. This is not a particularly similar team to Oakland. Mayock and whoever else that thinks so...sorry, I just don't see it. The comparison I've heard is that they are both 'physical.' Ok...maybe, but their strengths and weaknesses are almost polar opposites.
Again, don't take this that I'm not concerned about Sunday...I'm very concerned. I just don't think we're going to lose by giving up 5 sacks and letting them gash us for 200 yards rushing. If we lose, I think it will be because we can't run the ball and Flacco makes a couple more plays than Cassel.
