If you were to ask me which AFC team currently has the best chance at competing with, and even knocking off, the Kansas City Chiefs, I would say the Baltimore Ravens, hands down.

It's funny how just a year or two can change things, because the Tennessee Titans are closer to punting on this season than they are even sniffing a postseason spot.

Between the two teams, we could see some fireworks prior to the October 31 trade deadline. The Ravens should add more talent en route to a Super Bowl run, while the Titans build for the future. Let's look at three possible targets for the Ravens, by way of Tennessee.

1. Kyle Philips, WR

One Titans player I haven't seen a lot of noise about is last year's fifth-round pick Kyle Philips. The slot receiver has played on just 35 percent of snaps this season and remains hardly used to this point.

Zay Flowers has been electric with the ball in his hands and operates very well underneath and on intermediate routes. Philips operates in a similar realm, and would function well in four wide receiver sets. The Ravens have had a hard time getting consistency out of the position aside from Flowers and, believe it or not, Nelson Agholor. Both Rashod Bateman and Odell Beckham Jr. do not look like the guys fans wanted them to be.

He isn't a sexy target, and would come very cheap (think a seventh-round pick) but Philips would certainly improve the wide receiver room.
