Ravens 30, Chiefs 10
Ravens are rested, loving the no-huddle offense and vowing to become more punishing on defense again. Chiefs' offense has looked so bad fans are actually clamoring for Brady Quinn to replace Matt Cassel at quarterback. Yes, that Brady Quinn.
Ravens 23, Chiefs 14
Jamaal Charles is the type of running back who can give defenses headaches. But the Chiefs' one-dimensional offense will eventually stall, and Ray Rice should find success on the ground.
Ravens 24, Chiefs 13
Chiefs have multiple personalities but regardless if they all show up at once, they can't beat the Ravens. Running back Jamaal Charles struggles against physical defenses and the Ravens will pound on him.
Ravens 31, Chiefs 17
It'll be loud at Arrowhead, but a well-rested Joe Flacco and Co. will take the crowd out of it early and cruise to their fourth victory in five games.
Ravens 30, Chiefs 20
With playmakers in all three phases, the Chiefs are a better team than their record indicates. The Chiefs can have success running the ball with Jamaal Charles and Tamba Hali will give Michael Oher problems. But the real Matt Cassel has stood up for the Chiefs, and if he continues to play so poorly, the Ravens will get the road victory.
Ravens 27, Chiefs 13
Defense bottles up speedster Jamaal Charles, and Ed Reed baits Matt Cassel into miscues. Cam Cameron calls Ray Rice's number more, pounding the football due to pass rusher Tamba Hali's presence.
Ravens 27, Chiefs 17
This could be a dangerous game for the Ravens, heading into a tough venue against a desperate team. But the Chiefs are a mess and the Ravens have the offense that is flying high.
