Ravens vs. Chiefs bold predictions: Buy or sell
It’s time to go back to the Ravens Flock for predictions about the Ravens pending battle with the Kansas City Chiefs. With each prediction I either buy or sell and I explain why:
Ravens fans offer their predictions. I give my take.
Matthew Edward’s prediction (@_SoullesSaint): Wink lives up to his rep, players step up, defense dominates, Ravens win 26-10
I would love to believe that this game will be that easy for the Ravens. I just can’t see a dominant win in the hardest place to play in the NFL. The Chiefs offense is really good and Patrick Mahomes could be on his way to back to back MVP awards. The Ravens just gave up a lot of yards to Kyler Murray. I don’t buy 26-10 however I give you credit for such a bold prediction. You’re playing the game right and for that Matthew, I tip my cap.
I do buy that the defense steps up. I do buy that the Ravens win and Don Martindale looks like a genius after the game. The thing is that Martindale will get credit just for slowing down this offense. Give me the Ravens winning, but it will be more like 27-24.
Chris Hill’s prediction (@BlackMagic0312): Week 1 I was money. Week 2 not to bad a little off. Week 3 Bold Prediction: The defense wants to redeem itself from last year. All be it different year, different players. Ravens D holds Kansas City to less the 300 total yards offense packs the run game against a low ranked run defense two 100 yard running backs.
The Ravens will have to slow down the Chiefs’ offense to win this game. Keeping them under the 300 yard mark is a good goal. I don’t expect the Chiefs to be able to run the football against the Ravens. Give Mahomes 270 yards (give or take) and I think this prediction holds up. The Ravens need to get the run game going in this one and it is a prime chance for them to do so. I like the way you’re thinking and I buy your prediction.
CrabsnFootball’s prediction (@Stech33): Hill has breakout game, 2 runs of 20+ plus 1 TD

For Hill it’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when he has his breakout game. He is so talented and he’s come close to having some big plays already. I don’t think the Chiefs defense is going to handle the speed of this offense very well. That plays into your prediction. I think Hill gets around the edge a couple of times and scores a touchdown. This is a good prediction. The running backs better eat this defense up or the big win everyone is hoping for isn’t there to be had in the first place. I’m optimistic so I think the running backs eat, including Hill.
Kevin Topper’s prediction (@KevinTopper92): Will have a similar feel to last years game except Lamar makes the winning play at the end. Ravens win 27-24.
I love this prediction. Lamar Jackson wasn’t ready to have his big moment in Arrowhead last year and he still gave the team a shot. This year he is feeling it and he’s playing out of his mind. Jackson just had the most clutch pass (to Marquise Brown vs. Cardinals) that a Ravens quarterback has had in years.
Jackson has also been a dominant thrower on third downs. Nothing fazes Jackson and he’s made a ton of progress since his last trip to Kansas City. I’m all on the Jackson hype train and I do believe he will pull off some late game heroics.
Mike’s prediction (Michaelhaddad02): Marquise Brown has over 150 yards and two touchdowns.
I think this is a little rich of a prediction and yet I can’t bet against Marquise Brown. Brown has been a difference maker this season. If I had to put money on it, he ends up closer to 100 yards and a touchdown, yet we know that Brown can pull off your bold prediction. I buy it. This is totally possible. The Chiefs want Jalen Ramsey for a reason and they don’t have a cornerback who can keep up with Hollywood Brown.
art modell hof’s prediction (@edthehead84):
- Mark Andrews(112 yards & 2 td’s) out plays Kelce (67 yards 1 td)
- Jackson has more total yards than Mahomes
- Ravens win 27 – 24 KC is on the move to score in the final minutes but Earl Thomas get his 2nd interception and seal the victory Lastly Time of possession Ravens by 16 minutes Booooooom
First off I love the Twitter name of art modell hof and this guy is surely a friend of the website. Secondly, I love everything about this prediction. The Ravens have the best tight end in football in Mark Andrews and this is the game where they prove that. Jackson has to put on a big show to win this game. Keeping Mahomes off the field is huge and Earl Thomas instead of Eric Weddle is going to be a huge difference in this one.
DC’s prediction (@MTRaven51):
- Ravens 34 – Chiefs 31
- Jackson- 290 yrds 2 TDs, 80 yrds rushing and 1 TD.
- Ingram – 140 yard 1 TDs
- Andrews – 100 yards and 1 TD
- Hollywood – 75 yards
I think Ingram has less rushing yards than that but I’m not splitting hairs here. I think it will be a more running back by committee approach. Andrews has back to back games with 100 yards and eight receptions. That seems like a sure thing because he’s the best part of this offense not named Jackson. I think the Ravens need to keep this game in the 20’s score wise but 34-31 isn’t too far off. All of this can happen and nobody believes in Jackson more than I do. I dig this prediction.
Thanks to everyone who gave me a prediction. This was fun as it always is. The Ravens Flock is the best!
