The Ravens’ offense has looked terrible in the first half of their game against the Chiefs. Joe Flacco is 7-for-17 and he hasn’t been able to get the ball to his receivers. Baltimore’s receivers also haven’t been able to hold on to the ball.
As for the defense, the Chiefs have 180 rushing yards, including 125 for Jamaal Charles on 20 carries. It’s the first time since 1998 a running back has gained more than 100 yards in the first half against their defense.
The score is 3-3 with the Ravens receiving the ball to start the second half.
BEST OF MAXIM
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco had a rough day in Week 5 against the Chiefs, throwing for 187 yards and an interception.Fantasy Spin:Flacco only completed 13 of his 27 throws. Though he may be top-10, the Ravens quarterback cannot be counted on as an elite fantasy signal-caller because he has performances like this too frequently.
Joe Flacco said it best in his post-game interview: "You're going to have games like this where the best-laid game plans go off the track...but in the end, you come home with a Win, and there should be no complaints..."Flacco and his offense had some moments of struggle against a surprisingly resilient K.C. defense. Joe himself got laid out a few times on the turf.But...
Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles rushed 30 times for 140 yards Sunday against the Ravens.Fantasy Spin:Charles has handled 30 or more carries in two of the last three games. To put that in perspective, Charles only had 20-plus carried three times during his breakout year in 2010. The workload is great for his numbers in the short term but he could wear down as the season goes on.
The Ravens are well rested after 10 days off. That also means extra preparation by the coaching staff for their game Sunday afternoon against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Joe Flacco has been playing at a high level and that should continue against a banged up Chiefs defense. Flacco will pick on the Chiefs’ secondary with speedsters Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones.

Many have been asking all week which team in the NFL is the worst and the Kansas City Chiefs may be declared your winners once you realize how horrid they have been outside of their lone victory over New Orleans.
There are three other...
Baltimore Ravens @ Kansas City ChiefsBaltimore: The Ravens come off an extended break after beating the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football last week, and get a Chiefs team returning home after getting trounced by the Chargers. The Chiefs only win has come against the Saints, which a month ago would have seemed like quite the feat, but with the Saints losing to anyone...
Justin Tucker goes 3-3 vs the Chiefs
Sunday afternoon in Arrow Head stadium was a great one, if your definition of great is a low scoring and high turnover affair. In a game which featured more turnovers than it did scores, Baltimore scrapped out a win and stands atop the AFC North alone with a 4-1 record after a 9-6 victory over the Chiefs. But hey, there’s no category...
TAMPA, Fla. Tampa Bay Buccaneers players reported back to work from their bye Monday feeling rested and refreshed, ready to tackle the game plan for Kansas City that the coaching staff toiled over in their absence.After a 1-3 start, Sundays 1 p.m. contest at Raymond James Stadium represents a solid opportunity for the Bucs to get their season back on track against the struggling...
