Sports Content Editor
Prediction: Chiefs, 24, Ravens 9
Comment: The Chiefs, who arrive in Baltimore with a seven-game winning streak, are in pursuit of a wild-card spot. The Ravens won’t beat a team like Kansas City that has so much riding on this game.

Prediction: Chiefs 20, Ravens 13
Comment: A mistake-free performance from the visiting Chiefs won’t be replicated by the Ravens. It will be more competitive than the Seattle game, but one big turnover will cost the home team.
Prediction: Kansas City 27, Ravens 14
Comment: The Ravens ran up the white flag last week in the loss to Seattle. The 2015 season is now about finding young players who might be able to contribute next season and jockeying for draft position early in the first round.
Prediction: Chiefs 24, Ravens 10
Comment: The Chiefs ought to be in control throughout this game, so they’ll let their fourth-ranked running game keep the clock running in the second half. The Ravens probably aren’t healthy, talented or lucky enough to mount a serious challenge.
Prediction: Chiefs 31, Ravens 13
Comment: The Chiefs are one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now and they need to stay that way. The Ravens may stay close for a couple of quarters, but Alex Smith and company will wear them down.
Prediction: Chiefs 30, Ravens 13
Comment: The Chiefs don’t pop your eyes with star power, but they’re relentlessly solid on both sides of the ball. It’s hard to see the Ravens hanging with a surging team that has plenty to play for.

Prediction: Chiefs 26, Ravens 13
Comment: The Chiefs don't beat themselves and if the injury-depleted Ravens are going to win another game this season, they are going to need a lot of help. It won't come Sunday.
