Baltimore Ravens Defeat Kansas City on Sunday Night Football

The Baltimore Ravens Shock the Kansas City Chiefs at Home in Baltimore on Sunday Night Football

Chiefs vs. Ravens Highlights

The Ravens hosted the back to back AFC champions last night in a Sunday Night Football classic. The Ravens entering the game 0-1 after a wild defeat to the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football just 6 days prior, under the microscope of primetime again they sought to level the record. Standing in their way is a well-oiled Kansas City team who featured 0 players on the injured reserve list in comparison to the Raven’s league-leading 15. The 1-0 Chiefs took down the division rival Cleveland Browns in the opening weekend and looked to continue their recent dominance over the Ravens. But last night Lamar Jackson and the M&T Bank faithful had other plans……

The Ravens and Lamar Jackson got off to one of the worst starts imaginable as the Chiefs Tyran Mathieu ran back a pick-six just 50 seconds into the game. Now being down 7-0 early to the Chiefs is obviously not ideal, but what was even worse was the fact that Patrick Mahomes and his potent offense hadn’t even taken the field yet. That was no concern for the Ravens star QB from Louisville University as he led the Ravens on a 80 yard answering drive scored by Devin Duvernay to knot up the score at 7-7. The Raven’s and Chief’s fire power continued with blow after blow as each team found the end zone again before the 2 minute warning in the first half. Mahomes led the Chiefs one more time into the end zone in a beautiful 2 minute drill, but left 50 seconds too many on the clock for Lamar’s magic to settle for a field goal from Justin Tucker to make the score 21-17 Kansas City at half.

A Kansas City dominating 3rd quarter left the Ravens down 35-24 and reeling. Then here came the Lamar show. After sprinkling some jump passes and such Lamar took to his legs to win this game. He rushed for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter alone to take the lead 36-35 Baltimore. Leaving Mahomes and company with over 3 minutes left on the clock the Raven’s defense needed a stand, and it seemed to come from just the storyline man to do so. Odafe Oweh shined the brightest when it mattered the most. Ironically, the trade between the Ravens and the Chiefs for Orlando Brown Jr. landed Oweh in Baltimore after the 2021 draft. The Penn State alum punched out Clyde Edwards-Helaire’s HB dive attempt and landed on the football as what seemed to be the inevitable Chief’s inevitable comeback victories kryptonite. With three timeouts Kansas City was not done just yet. Forcing a 4th and 1 backed up in their own territory John Harbaugh yelled to his star QB “Do we go for this?”. A first down sealed the game, a punt took the Chiefs out of field goal range with less than a minute remaining, and a turnover on downs would leave it up to Kansas City’s Harison Butker to pin a game-winner through the uprights. Of course, the former MVP exclaimed his want to go for it, and did just that with a QB draw that punched through the pile for a first down and a Ravens win.

The Ravens return to action in Detroit on Sunday with a face off against Jared Goff and the Lions at 1 PM EST.
