Quarterback superstars set to shine

Baltimore Ravens. Kansas City Chiefs. One step away from the Super Bowl.

The big story, of course, is Lamar Jackson vs Patrick Mahomes. The favorite for the Regular Season MVP against the regular front-runner. Two Quarterbacks capable of changing the game – just ask Cam Newton – and to be honest, two QBs who have changed the game since entering the NFL in the late 2010’s.

After the mini-upset in Buffalo last weekend, we’re going to start with Mahomes and the Chiefs – who are competing in their sixth straight AFC Championship game. But it’s been a rockier road than usual following an 11-6 season, leading to Mahomes’ first (and now second) ever road game in the NFL Playoffs. Wild.

It would be wrong to say the odds were stacked against them going into Buffalo, but they did go in as underdogs. Something they clearly relished. Every time the Chiefs were up against it, they responded. The classic to-and-fro tussle we expect from a Mahomes vs Josh Allen battle, with five lead changes along the way.

But the end result? The same as it ever was. A win for Kansas City.

Over a decade on from successive AFC Championship games, the second of which was en route to winning Super Bowl XLVII, the Ravens are back once again. But this is the first time Baltimore plays host – and they won’t be rolling out the red carpet for their guests.

Want proof? Just ask the Houston Texans. Numerous pre-snap penalties cost Houston – and that wasn’t just down to a lack of discipline. The raucous Ravens support made themselves heard as they have done all season. No stadium in the NFL has witnessed more False Starts and Delay of Game penalties than at M&T Bank this year. It’s gonna be LOUD.

Despite all that, Houston more than matched the Ravens for two quarters. Extra quality showed after the break and Baltimore pulled away, but that might not be so easy against the super experienced Super Bowl champs. Maybe the first two quarters were just blowing off some cobwebs after an extended break. Ravens were good. But they can be better.

Team News: Ravens rolling; could get stronger

No fresh concerns for the Ravens, just an eagerness to get two of their best players back on the field. Cornerback Marlon Humphrey has missed a few games and is Questionable for this one. If he could get on the field to lock up Rashee Rice or Travis Kelce, that’d be a huge bonus.

The other is three-time Pro Bowler Mark Andrews. The Tight End is practicing but the fact he missed the Houston game doesn’t bode well. The Ravens are doing just fine without him – but hey, 11th February is a few weeks away…

Team News: Chiefs concerns after Bills battle

A couple of concerns for the Chiefs at the time of writing. Run blocker Willie Gay didn’t return after a neck injury against the Bills and he’ll be a big miss if he doesn’t make it – the Ravens went off for 229 rushing yards last weekend.

First-Team All Pro Joe Thuney is one of the best Guards in the NFL and also faces a race against time after sustaining a pectoral injury at Buffalo. And Kadarius Toney is Questionable. That’s his status, not his catching ability…

Last meeting

Ravens 36-35 Chiefs (2021)

It’s not that relevant. But it was these two QBs, it was in Baltimore, and it was 36-35 to the Ravens. And it included a Lamar Jackson flip in the end zone. Read our previews, get your bets on, then go watch those highlights. If this game lives up to that one, we can all go home happy.

FlashPicks prediction

Baltimore Ravens.

You can’t write off the Chiefs – and trust us, we’re not. But Lamar Jackson and the Ravens just keep stepping up to every test that comes their way.

Baltimore can run it, they can sling it, they can bring it. Most sacks, most takeaways, fewest points conceded. They’re just good at everything and we see them coming out on top. Hopefully in an absolute classic.
