Oh, and it’s one of only two 2-0 vs. 2-0
matchups in the NFL this week as the Baltimore Ravens host the Kansas City Chiefs
on Monday Night Football. The game kicks off at 8:20 p.m. ET at M&T Bank
Stadium in Baltimore and will be televised on ESPN.
These teams have met 10 times since the
Ravens moved from Cleveland, and Kansas City leads the series 6-4. Last year in
Week 3, the Chiefs rallied to win at home 33-28, and they’ve won three in a row
in the series. The Chiefs won in Baltimore in 2015, and the last Ravens win
in the series came in 2012.

at 28.5 points per game. Surprisingly, Kansas City is just 18th in passing

scores while completing 27-of-47 passes. He also ran for 54 yards. On the
season, Mahomes has completed 65% of his passes for 513 yards, five
