Who: Baltimore Ravens 4-8, (before week 13)
The Baltimore Ravens are a like the Chargers in a lot of ways. The biggest comparison was that they were predicted to be a threat in the AFC, but have falling by the wayside.
Quarterback Joe Flacco has been placed on IR for the rest of the season with a torn ACL, and backup Matt Schaub has been awful for the team, throwing his usual pick-six in games in each of the last three games.
But despite their problems on offense, their defense has been able to keep them in games thanks to keeping the scores close. In the last four games they have lost by less than a touchdown losing by, 2, 3, 6, and 2 points respectively. Their defense is ranked 14th overall, according to NFL.com, which is why they are a tough team to predict the outcome.
The last time these two teams met was back in 2012, with the ravens winning the field goal battle as the Matt Cassel led Chiefs lost the game 9-6. The Ravens Chiefs history is also tied at 3-3 in the regular season match-ups between both teams.
For this game, the defense of the Chiefs is going to be too much for the Schaub led Ravens. Schaub is not the answer at quarterback and rookie standout Marcus Peters will be licking his chops to add to his collection of interceptions this season. Offensively the Chiefs will have a much harder battle as the Raven defense is not bad, but not elite.
Of all the remaining games this one is the biggest kink to the win-streak. Unless the Chiefs enter the game with their heads in the right place, they could very well lose this game. It could also go either way in terms of who wins, but the Chiefs have the edge as they have a mistake-free offense, but the Ravens D keeps it close.
Prediction: Kansas City 24, Baltimore 20
