NFL picks Week 5: Ravens-Chiefs is not a difficult choice

The Ravens are more talented and have the Chiefs number.

I picked the Chiefs to win in Week 1 and again in Week 2. I picked against them in Week 3 and for them in Week 4.

And I've been wrong every single time.

So, clearly, I have no idea what I'm talking about. I'm not even sure why I'm posting my picks at this point unless you're taking the George Costanza route and doing the opposite of what I say.

My official game pick for the Ravens-Chiefs game: 31-17 in favor of the Ravens.

The Ravens own the Chiefs or at least they have the last few years. In 2009, the Chiefs were out-gained in a 38-24 loss to the Ravens in the season opener (a game Brodie Croyle started).Then in January 2011 the Chiefs kept it competitive for a half before losing to Baltimore by 23 points.

Even if the Chiefs were 4-0 I'd strongly consider picking against them. (OK, maybe not.)
