Week 15 at the Baltimore Ravens will be a very tough game. Down the stretch, at a rival AFC franchise? This is very much a tough game. The Ravens defense, although faltering through the preseason, will always be a tough nut to crack. Offensively while unspectacular, the Ravens still have quality, governed by an underrated Joe Flacco and boasts weapons of Steve Smith Sr., Justin Forsett and the potentially world-class Breshad Perriman. Can  Reid be smiling on the plane home from Baltimore? Most certainly, but this is still an extremely tough game.

Another road game poses significant problems for Kansas City’s playoff aspirations. This being the Week 4 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals. Like the Chiefs, the Bengals roster boasts talent across the board. A. J. Green is one of the best weapons in football, and for all Andy Dalton’s faults, he knows how to find his main man. Green has achieved 1,000 yards in all four seasons playing in the NFL, and after a down year last season, will look to bounce back.

The Chiefs will welcome back Sean Smith, a well needed return, but this is still a game that the Bengals will enter as favorites.
