Kansas City Chiefs Predictions
12/9/2018, 1:00pm ET
Who's gonna bet against the Chiefs and Showtime? Ravens may have a solid def but Mahomes is only getting better and playing smarter and I haven't seen a defense that can fluster him, especially at home. I predict Chiefs get this by double digits.
My Pick: Kansas City -6.5

The Ravens have a good defenseIve read this all week. You know where else I read that, before the Chargers game, before the Jaguars game, before the Rams game. Guess what, nothing has stopped Big Red and Co. from scoring when and how they want. Why should this week be any different? Chiefs remain unbeaten at home. Closer than expected and lower scoring, but a win. Chiefs win 24-17
My Pick: Under 51

KC are #1 offensiive and 5-0 at home, despite being ranked bad at DEF , being at home makes you rank top 5 in defense usually.
My Pick: Kansas City -6.5

Wichita Eagle: Chiefs 27, Ravens 24 in overtime: Insta-reaction!
The Chiefs clinched a playoff spot with a 27-24 overtime win over the Ravens, and they can clinch the AFC West with a win over the Chargers at home on Thursday.
Their quarterback may or may not be an actual curly-haired wizard, and his specific brand of magic with his franchise's overbearing history of playoff failure and an emerging kicker problem is a fascinating pairing.
Look, the coming game column will almost certainly focus on Patrick Mahomes, but for about 56 minutes we all saw the same thing so we might as well say it out loud:
This is how you beat them.

Baltimore Beat Down: Ravens vs. Chiefs: Open thread
A fantastic game is lining up for the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs as both teams are hungry for wins. Andy Reid and his high-octane offense are facing off against the Ravens' number one ranked defense in the league.
This matchup is quite unique as Baltimore's three-straight games with Lamar Jackson have been heavily focused on bullying the oppositions defense and keeping their team fresh and ready to make a play. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are airing it out and scoring at the league's best rate.
The high-octane attack may slow down today due to the absence of Kareem Hunt, but I'm confident the Ravens still game-planned for his play-style and the looks their offense brings to the running back position.
Baltimore Beat Down: Bold Predictions: Ravens vs. Chiefs
In a matchup featuring a battle between a top rated offense and a number one defense, the Ravens have a chance to make a huge statement on the road if they can upset the Chiefs. With every week influencing Baltimore's postseason outlook, Baltimore Beatdown boldly predicts how the game will turn out.
In a field goal fest against Atlanta in Week 13, Jackson threw for the fewest yards in his short stint as Baltimore's starter. However, Kansas City is dead last in passing defense, giving up 295 yards per game through the air.

Fansided: NFL Week 14 writer predictions: Kansas City Chiefs unanimously predicted to beat Baltimore Ravens
Coming off a shootout win against the Oakland Raiders last week, the Kansas City Chiefs are turning to face the Baltimore Ravens. This game will be a true test for the Chiefs, who boast the NFL's best offense, as the Ravens boast the NFL's best defense.
Though the news of wide receiver Sammy Watkins re-injuring his foot emerging is bad news for the Chiefs, they were able to hang with the Los Angeles Rams and beat the Raiders without him. They also beat the Denver Broncos earlier in the season without Watkins for the majority of the game.
Arrowhead Pride: Chiefs vs. Ravens: How the Chiefs defense beats Baltimore
After one of the worst performances of the year, the Kansas City Chiefs defense gets to come back home to the warm confines of Arrowhead Stadium.
Unfortunately for them, a Baltimore Ravens offense that is predicated on the run awaits them, and the Chiefs' run defense -- ranked 32nd in DVOA -- is a very poor matchup.
What can they do to try to come up with some stops this week?

Arrowhead Pride: What they're saying: Chiefs vs. Ravens
It's the No. 1 defense in the league vs. one of -- if not the -- most feared NFL offenses.
While Kansas City will look to improve to 11-2, remain undefeated at home and clinch their playoff berth, the Ravens will be playing to upset the Chiefs, remain undefeated in Kansas City, and, in doing so, continue their race to claiming an AFC Wild Card spot.
Leading up to game, which kicks off at noon Arrowhead time in Kansas City, Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh shared his thoughts with local Kansas City Chiefs reporters.
Here's what he had to say:
"It puts us in a different place," Harbaugh said on how Jackson's changed their game.
Kansas City Star: Twenty years later, mystery defines murder of KC native and Chiefs hopeful Tim Hall
Like many of us, Joyce Hall has a certain fascination with television shows about cold cases. But her reasons are more intense and intimate than most could fathom.
Her interest is a complicated combination of ceaseless grief with unyielding thirst for just some token of resolution over the unsolved murder 20 years ago of her beloved son Tim -- weeks after the Northeast High product had been waived by the Oakland Raiders and as he was auditioning for other teams, including the Chiefs.
So every once in a while, she is compelled to touch base to see if there might be any progress in the case, as she did again in recent weeks when she called Sgt.
Wichita Eagle: Keys to victory: Chiefs must not let Ravens dominate pace of play on Sunday
The Chiefs can surpass last season's win total by beating the Baltimore Ravens this weekend at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs will also try to remain unbeaten at home this season.Keys to victory
The Chiefs must not allow the Ravens to dominate the pace of play. By sustaining long drives, controlling the clock and limiting the Chiefs' number of possessions in the game, the Ravens could minimize the opportunities for Patrick Mahomes and the top-scoring offense in the NFL. Last week, the Ravens had the ball for nearly 40 minutes and limited the Falcons to 45 offensive plays.

WBAL: Ravens Aim To Use Ball-Control Offense To Slow Down Chiefs
Hear the Baltimore Ravens face the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday on WBAL NewsRadio 1090 and FM 101.5. Coverage begins at 9:00 A.M.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Lamar Jackson knows that he will play a big part in stopping the high-flying Kansas City Chiefs offense when he leads the Baltimore Ravens into Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.
He won't make a tackle, though, or cause a fumble or intercept a pass.
That's because stopping Patrick Mahomes and Co. begins with keeping them on the sideline. And to do that, the Ravens quarterback needs to make sure he keeps his own offense on the field.
Fansided: Baltimore Ravens defense faces tough test against Kansas City Chiefs
The Baltimore Ravens number one ranked defense is about to go against a juggernaut named the Kansas City Chiefs. Pat Mahomes has turned a decent Chiefs offense into one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL. Mahomes is close to the 4,000 yard mark and has thrown for 41 touchdown passes this season. The Chiefs offense puts up more points per game than any team in the league, even the New Orleans Saints.
The Ravens played an offense at this level earlier this season when they faced the Saints. Baltimore held New Orleans to 24 points.

In Week 14, the Ravens aim to extend their winning streak in a difficult road environment against the class of the AFC.
Kansas City's league best scoring offense, fueled by gifted quarterback Patrick Mahomes under the tutelage of Andy Reid, has carried them to a 10-2 record. Baltimore's top ranked defense will encounter an electric group of playmakers that are averaging 37 points per game.
The all-time series between these franchises is tied at four apiece, yet surprisingly the Ravens are undefeated at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs won the most recent meeting 34-14 over an injury depleted 2015 Ravens squad.
