You hate to kick someone when they’re down, but in sports, things just don’t work that way. The 1-0 Chiefs travel to Baltimore to face an injury-riddled Ravens squad that can already see their season slipping away. Injuries at key positions have pillaged the Ravens on both sides of the ball, and while the Chiefs are heavy favorites in this Sunday Night Football tilt, the fact remains that a cornered team is a dangerous team.
2019 league MVP Lamar Jackson is winless in his career against the Chiefs. That is a fact that bears no influence on the outcome of Sunday night’s game. Say what you want about Jackson, but there are no excuses available for the Chiefs, who fortunately have literally all hands on deck for the ball game, as every Chief was available to practice as of the time of this publication.
This is a must-win for both teams. Let’s look at a few Chiefs players who will need to step up in the team’s first primetime performance since the Super Bowl.
