Baltimore Ravens vs. Kansas City Chiefs Preview and Predictions

Josh ZerkleChief Writer IIIOctober 1, 2012

You have to believe Ray Lewis and company will want to tee off on Matt Cassel come Sunday. The Chiefs QB has been a model of inconsistency in 2012. Cassel was picked off three times by the Chargers last week in their 37-20 loss. In Cassel's defense, he got absolutely no help from the defense, as the Chiefs found themselves down by 17 in the first quarter. As a result, Jamaal Charles had no opportunity to find any rhythm and the Chiefs had five turnovers in the first half. 

The Ravens are slowly alerting the NFL that they are an elite team with an elite QB in Joe Flacco. Baltimore gutted out a 23-16 win against the Browns. Yes, rookie Brandon Weeden looked decent, putting up 320 yards. But the Ravens defense answered when then they had to. Offensively, Baltimore is proving to be a force the Chiefs probably can't keep up with. If Joe Flacco is not connecting to Torrey Smith or Anquan Boldin, he's handing the ball off to Ray Rice. Can the Chiefs stop the Ravens?

Will KC find some way to get Jamaal Charles into the flow early on against the Ravens?
