Put the pressure on the quarterback.

The Ravens quarterback situation is a mess. Whether it is Matt Schaub, or Jimmy Clausen, the play of the quarterback position is horrid.

Getting pressure on who ever is behind center is something that the Chiefs excel at. Even with the absence of the 2014 NFL sacks leader Justin Houston, they have the players in place. Disrupting the pass will be one of the key factors for KC to win this game. The Ravens lack any real receiving threat; however receiver Kamar Aiken is slowly catching on as a decent deep threat for the Ravens.

Against a good defensive team in last week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, he hauled in five passes for 90 yards. They have also placed Steve Smith on the injured reserve, limiting their targets even more. They do have a pass catching running back in Justin Forsett, and tight end Maxx Williams has been a disappointment in his rookie season.

Bottom line, this Ravens offense is not going to have a good day, even at home, against the favored Chiefs and their much improved defense. Sunday will not be any easier for the Ravens, as the Chiefs will look to continue their dominance on defense.

Next: Put the foot on the gas.
