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

    • This may be the best football interview I have ever seen.  Must see for Colts, Packers or any other football fan!   Rodgers is the most candid I've seen and he's really funny.      
    • Correct. And we need to win that game because if we lose, it is highly unlikely we win the last 5, but I think it is likely they win at least 3 since they play Hou. Jax and a floundering Det.  And they may even be favored against Cle.  That leaves GB for them to upset to sweep into the playoffs and could make it very tough for us to get in at all with our tie breaker status.  This is the more important than any further game this season.  Win and our path to the playoffs is so much more wide open.  But we will still likely need to win at least 3 games to get in unless TN craters somehow.  Those tiebreakers are really going to challenge us in wildcard scenarios.    I could see Hou winning one against us, they usually do and they are on a major upswing.  Their offense is no joke and they do not depend at all on the run so our run defense is less effective obviously.  Pitt and the Raiders are also no joke and both games are away.  This is a critical one if we hope to win the division. If we lose, finishing 9-7 is realistically still in play and I don't see TN losing 3 out of 5.  In fact, I don't see them losing more than 2 of 5.  If we win they'll likely have to win 4 of 5 or sweep to catch us for the division.  I called the Raiders game as being key to make the playoffs and go 10-6 before the season started. With a loss, the desperate WC tie breaker situation, that is especially true.  It's possible for a 10-6 team to miss the playoffs even with the extra team.  Cleveland will almost surely get 10 wins with their easy finish.  Baltimore is also likely.  (Their divisional matchups are really favorable this time around).  Then again maybe we'll sweep the season and get the #1 seed.  Pitt still has to play 5 current playoff teams in their final 6 and KC has to play 3.     Just speculation as always, but that is the fun of a football message board.  Go Colts!
    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
