Given the Chiefs performance against a Chargers rookie QB I'll go with Baltimore.

ok I'm reluctant to make my pick just yet. Ravens are home so def have advantage. 

 

But never discredit Mahomes

This is going to be such a good game. We know what the offenses can do. The real question is the defense. The Ravens on paper have more talent compared to the Chiefs. 

 

The Chargers had a good gameplan for Mahomes. They just couldn't get it done at the end of the game. Expect the Ravens to continue that blueprint: Stick the backs to the receivers like glue.

Last year, the Chiefs had to make miraculous 4th down conversions from Mahomes to Hill to win the game. Ravens still have a small weakness, run D down the middle. Showed up vs Nick Chubb in 1 game and Derrick Henry at the inopportune time in the playoffs. They still are middle of the pack in yards per carry down the middle.

 

Both the Chiefs and Ravens play good pass D and the Ravens pass D has improved with the signing of Calais Campbell. The run D is the weaker aspect of both defenses. So, it boils down to which team can control clock better with running the ball. On that aspect, I would give the edge to the Ravens and they are looking forward to this as a revenge game for last year's Week 3 game.

I will probably roll with Baltimore since it is at Baltimore. Chiefs looked lethargic today. 

As good as Herbert looked his rookie mistake opened the door for the Chiefs to win.

IMO had he ran for the first down instead of throwing an interception, chances are the Chargers would have had a better chance. 

I liked how good he looked considering he didn't even know he was going to start till game time. It's kinda amazing he played so well with zero snaps with the starters.

Mahomes vs. Jackson I would not say one is so much better than the other and I know stats, etc. may favor Mahomes but I think we are going to see a banner year for Jackson. Taking nothing away from the rookie Cardinal.

I agree. The Ravens team is lethal right now. Not sure the Chiefs defense which has looked pretty bad will be able to slow them down.

Mahomes is reason enough to pick Chiefs

 

Watkins is banged up and might miss the game, they would need their full arsenal to compete vs the Ravens, IMO.

I feel like Mahomes could throw up random love and someone would catch it

Rodgers 

Mahomes

    • Having eavesdropped into your conversation with NCF, I agree with you, but I think you stated it a bit dramatically by saying that he said the QB position is not the most important.  Let me try to clean that up.   I think at that presser, he was laying out a philosophy that said that he is going to build the team differently than maybe what we've had the past 20 years, where the team was built around the skills of one guy PM then Luck.  He was explaining to the fans the difference between what the fans would see going forward and what they have seen in the past.   I strongly believed that he meant that.  That you can win by building a complete team around QBs like Tannehill, Wentz, maybe Foles (who is still posting a winning record at CHI despite the consistent criticism) and your salary cap and roster won't be hamstrung by one guy.....so your team doesn't fall apart when that one guy has a freak neck injury (or decides to quit mid contract).   Supported by the observation that Ballard was not as choked up by Luck leaving...at least not seemingly as eager to see him come back as Irsay and some fans....so that tends to corroborate the notion that he truly believes that a winning football team is not about one guy...which....would be the QB.   But I'm sure if he ranked the most important positions on a football team, he would list QB #1.

    • I feel Ballard has done a great job building this team's trenches. Now it's time to spend more capital on skill positions.  WR has been a sore spot on this team for way too long (since Reggie) but Ballard can't control all the injuries. DE has also been pretty bad (outside of Houston). He needs to figure that out quick.    Luck quitting out of nowhere really screwed this team, and even though I don't care for who he replaced that void with, Ballard put his head down and dealt with it. I also was not a fan of giving Brisket that much money, but hey I'm not the GM.    Or when you hire a head coach and they also quit on you at the last minute, he handled that like a champ as well.       
    • In today’s NFL, it’s almost impossible to be a championship caliber team without a top 10 QB.  Of course it’s not the only position that matters.  They all matter.  But, better or worse, the game has become so much about the ability to move the ball in large chunks.  And not all QBs can make that happen as well as the game requires.   And getting a QB of that caliber is hard.  And I would argue that it even involves some measure of good luck - like a 6th round pick out of Michigan ending up with 6 rings...or a guy like Mahomes falling to where he did in the draft.   Even getting one of the top picks while needing a QB is far from a guarantee.   Every team that doesn’t already have one of them is trying to do the same thing.  And some high percentage of the top prospects don’t ever make it into that echelon.
    • but can he win a SB with 2 different teams
