The Game

For Week 2, the Kansas City Chiefs are on the road to face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football. Kickoff is set for 7:20 p.m. Arrowhead Time. The game will be carried on NBC-TV — locally on KSHB/41.

The Chiefs entered the 2021 season as defending AFC champions, following a franchise-best 2020 record of 14-2 that gave them their fifth-straight AFC West crown and the AFC’s No. 1 seed. But the team suffered a 31-9 defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV. The team opened the season with a 33-29 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

The Ravens finished last season with an 11-5 record to finish second in their division. One of three AFC North teams to reach the postseason, they defeated the Tennessee Titans in the Wild Card round before falling to the Buffalo Bills 17-3 in the Divisional round. Last Monday night, Baltimore opened 2021 with a 33-27 overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.

Both offenses are led by former NFL MVPs. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes received the honor in 2018 — his first season as the team’s starter — while Ravens signal-caller Lamar Jackson won it in 2020. Mahomes’ strong suit is passing, while Jackson’s is rushing. Mahomes has thrown for 13,868 yards since 2018; Jackson has 7,085. In contrast, Jackson has rushed for 2,906 yards, while Mahomes has accumulated just 798. But the two quarterbacks rank first and second in passer rating during those three seasons, with Mahomes edging Jackson 109.3 to 102.6.

Except for second-year linebacker Willie Gay Jr. — who is now on the team’s Reserve/Injured list — Kansas City comes into the matchup at full strength, while Baltimore’s roster is riddled with injuries. Running backs J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards — and former Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters — are among 11 Ravens players on injured reserve. Six players on the active roster — including left tackle Ronnie Stanley — are listed as questionable for the game, along with wide receivers Marquise Brown and Devin Duvernay and cornerbacks Jimmy Smith and Marlon Humprhey. Cornerback Chris Westry has already been declared out.

Since the original Cleveland Browns moved to Baltimore to become the Ravens in 1999, the Chiefs lead their all-time regular-season series 7-3 — including four consecutive wins since head coach Andy Reid came to Kansas City in 2013. All four came against Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, who served as one of Reid’s assistant coaches during nine seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. But Harbaugh also led Baltimore to one of Kansas City’s worst postseason defeats: a 30-7 Wild Card thrashing following the 2010 season.
