Here is your post-game open thread. The Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Baltimore Ravens 31-13 in their second contest of the 2011 NFL preseason. It was your typical preseason game: uneventful and tough to read. Dwayne Bowe looked rather exceptional early actually but there wasn't a whole lot of concrete conclusions to draw from this game. It wasn't 25-0, like last week.
The Ravens did throw deep with under a minute left in the game, when they were up 24-13. A Ravens WR caught the ball within the five-yard line and they punched it in for another touchdown with essentially no time left. Don't stress this - it was that many more plays for Ravens coaches to evaluate players. I would want the Chiefs to do the same thing.
We will have full recaps/coverage of the game over the next few days.
