Kansas City Chiefs vs. Baltimore Ravens Predictions
Score Prediction - Kansas City 31 Baltimore 20
The second Sunday of regular-season NFL action will conclude with a highly anticipated Sunday Night Football blockbuster on NBC – as Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens will play host to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in the final event of the evening.
After entering the halftime break of Week 1 trailing the Browns by 12, the Chiefs appeared to effortlessly rally back against Cleveland down the stretch of their latest matchup – as Mahomes ended up completing 12-of-16 passes for 168 yards and three TD’s in the second half to secure a four-point victory for Kansas City.
On the other hand, the Ravens head into Sunday’s matchup sitting on the complete opposite side of the spectrum, as Baltimore infamously kicked off the new season by coughing up a 14-point road lead to the Raiders this past Monday – which has landed John Harbaugh’s squad in an incredibly tough spot ahead of Week 2.
I’ll lay the points with Kansas City here, as the Ravens surrendered 33 points to Las Vegas on Monday Night Football last week – and that type of defense certainly won’t cut it against Mahomes and company in Week 2.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Baltimore Ravens Betting Analysis
After trailing the Browns by two touchdowns early last week, the Chiefs appeared to flip “the switch” on both sides of the ball to start the second half and they immediately took over the contest – as Kansas City outscored Cleveland 23-7 following the break, which ended up being just enough juice to seal a narrow victory for Andy Reid’s squad in Week 1.
The Ravens are also a team with quick-strike ability though, which is primarily why I still give them a puncher’s chance at knocking off Kansas City in this matchup – but ultimately, the Chiefs’ offensive firepower should end up outlasting Baltimore’s throughout this one.
