On paper, the Chiefs have a favorable schedule down the stretch. Of its final seven games, Kansas City only faces a 2014 playoff team once. The Ravens would be that team, hosting the Chiefs in Week 15 at M&T Bank Stadium.

If Kansas City is trying to lock up a playoff spot and maybe even more than that, this would be a huge win on the road. The Chiefs have proven they can beat terrific teams, taking down the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks last year, along with the Buffalo Bills, San Diego Chargers and Miami Dolphins on the road.

The Ravens will likely be battling to play beyond the regular season as well, making this an even bigger feather in the cap. If Kansas City wants to be taken seriously in the playoff tournament, beating teams with a winning tradition like Baltimore is a nice get. The Ravens are certainly a quality team, but a beatable one.
