The Baltimore Ravens fell 33-28 to the Kansas City Chiefs yesterday to fall to 2-1 on the 2019 season. Here are some top takeaways.
When you play a team the caliber of Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, you really need to bring your A-game. If it’s the home opener at Arrowhead Stadium in a Super Bowl or bust year, you need to be nearly perfect. Unfortunately, the Baltimore ravens only brought with them their C-game; and they were about as far from perfect as we have seen them over the years.

Baltimore lost by just five points. I say this to remind you of an old quote “Things are never as good or as bad as they seem.”
Yesterday the familiar excuses started coming out. “Harbaugh sucks, he needs to go.” “This play-calling is awful.” “The refs have it in for us.” And on and on and on. All of these were mentioned as the “reason we lost.”
What we forget as football fans is that losses are collective. When you have a talented football team as the Ravens do, you never really lose a game based on ONE thing going wrong. Let’s look at some of what went wrong though.
