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.
Additionally, Ray Rice should find some cracks in the Chiefs’ defense as defensive end Glenn Dorsey has been ruled out with a calf injury.
As for the Ravens’ defense, this is the game that they will improve their pass defense. Matt Cassel has struggled this season and the Ravens should be able to feast on him.
The worry here is about Jamaal Charles. The Chiefs running back can get outside on the Ravens and make their day miserable. Charles is very fast and the Ravens haven’t been good about sealing the edge on defense to this point in the season.
All that said, I think the Ravens beat the Chiefs 24-10.
