Defense's run streak will be challenged by Chiefs

The Ravens haven't allowed a 100-yard rusher in their playoff history, a streak that will be tested by the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

In the Ravens' 13 postseason games, the most rushing yards ever allowed to one running back was 91 (Tennessee's Eddie George in January 2001). The Titans' Chris Johnson was on his way to cracking that mark but he was forced out of a playoff game two years ago after gaining 72 yards against the Ravens.

It's no secret that Kansas City will attack the Ravens' defense with running backs Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones, who combined for a league-best 2,263 yards this season.

"We love when teams like to run," Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata said. "We'll see how it goes during the game, but if we can take away their best thing, then that's an advantage for us."
