The Baltimore Ravens will host the AFC Championship Game for the first time in franchise history. Coming to town is the very team that's hosted the past five AFC title games, the Kansas City Chiefs.
A lot was made last week about Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs playing a playoff game on the road for the first time in his career but they silenced the doubters. Now Mahomes and company will be rewarded with a game against the fiery Ravens. We all know that M&T Bank Stadium will be rocking but how is the weather looking for the AFC Championship Game?
Ravens vs. Chiefs weather forecast
As of this writing, NFL Weather says the temperature at kickoff will be 47° but it will feel like 41°. The biggest storyline here could end up being the rain. There's a chance of rain throughout the game, which would tip the scale even more so in Baltimore's favor.
We know that the Ravens thrive when running the ball and the Chiefs did not stop the run well last week in Buffalo. The Chiefs defense surrendered 182 rushing yards before the Bills for whatever reason stopped running the ball and opted to throw instead, costing them the game.
If the rain picks up, the Ravens will have no problem running the ball on Kansas City's defense. The Chiefs rushing attack did well last week as well but they were going up against a very banged up Bills defense. The Ravens run defense shouldn't have any problem shutting down Isiah Pacheco down.
