Baltimore Ravens (12-4) Vs. Kansas City Chiefs (10-6)

With the playoffs on the way, the Baltimore Ravens look to keep their success on the road in the playoffs rolling. With that it could

The Baltimore Ravens clash with the Kansas City Chiefs this upcoming Sunday.

give them a chance for a second Super Bowl victory in team history.

The Ravens need to stick to their old way’s by playing dominate defense and dishing out a large helping of Ray Rice. This should give them the needed help to win the first round and deep into the playoffs.

Look for Joe Flacco to have plenty of chance’s to pass down the field, especially if Rice gets going. Flacco is one of the best play-action fake quarterback’s in the NFL. If Flacco gets going it’s going to be trouble for the Kansas City Chiefs.

There are a lot of impact player’s starring in this “Wild-Card Showdown” this Sunday.

On the Ravens side, the defense showcase’s two of the most influential player’s that are  in the NFL Ray Lewis and Ed Reed who are definitely going to leave their impact on this game. With both of them playing on defense it makes the rest of the defense play at a unbelievable level.

The offense has two player’s that will show up in this game and that is Rice and Anquan Boldin. With the running talent of Rice and the tough catching ability of Boldin, it should be a great day for Flacco and the Ravens offense.

On the Chiefs side, the defense has a lot of talent with their two impact player’s rookie safety Eric Berry and veteran outside linebacker Mike Vrabel. Both of them should have a chance to stop the Ravens running attack and passing attack if not jump started.

The offense has two impact player’s that have to have a big day  in order for the chiefs to even have the thought of winning against the high powered Ravens and that is Matt Cassel and Dwayne Bowe. Not to mention that they have to get some sort of running game, to not be one dimensional in this game. This needs to happen or the Ravens are going to have a fun day this Sunday.

This should be an interesting game as the Chiefs have one of the best running attacks in the AFC and the Ravens are sporting one of the best defenses. The game will mostly likely come down to this aspect.

The Ravens defense may bend in this game, but surely not going to break. The Ravens can’t afford to get tired in the fourth quarter, where they are known for blowing leads this season.

With talent on both sides for the Chiefs and Ravens, it should be a close game and surely going to be a great one.

The Ravens should be able to come away with the victory if they stick to running the ball and letting Flacco show off his play-action skills.

But if none of this comes into play than look for the Chiefs to be celebrating a win against a great football team.

Well it’s enough of me writing, now it’s time to watch the game and see who can be the last team standing this Sunday afternoon.
