On Monday Night Football this week, we get a battle of two of the top teams in the league, with the Kansas City Chiefs taking on the Baltimore Ravens. To open the week, the Ravens are the slight home favorites, but no result would be shocking between these two top AFC teams. 

However, there could still be some surprises in the game. With that in mind, here are three bold predictions for the Ravens against the Chiefs.

3. Ravens Rush for 225 Yards

The Ravens were known for their dominant rushing attack last season. They leaned on the pass in Week 1, rushing for just 111 yards. Last week, they broke out, running for 230 yards. They should be able to do the same this week. Kansas City gave up 183 yards on the ground to the Los Angeles Chargers last week. If they couldn’t stop that rushing attack, they will really struggle with this one.

2. Ravens Sacks Patrick Mahomes Multiple Times

Between the offensive line play and the mobility of Patrick Mahomes, the NFL’s richest man has been kept clean this season, getting sacked just once in each of the first two games. However, that may change this week. The Ravens pass rush has been playing well, sacking Baker Mayfield twice in the opener, then sacking Deshaun Watson a whopping four times last week. If the odds are correct and the Ravens are leading, this should also lead to further opportunities to bring the pass rush, due to game script.

1. Mark Andrews Catches a Touchdown

The Lamar Jackson to Mark Andrews connection has been undeniable, with the two connecting on 6 touchdowns in the last six regular season games. The Chiefs have struggled to guard tight ends through two weeks. They let Jordan Akins make a couple big plays, totaling 39 yards and a touchdown. Last week, Hunter Henry went for 83 yards in the game. Look for Andrews to have a big game, which includes a trip to the end zone.
