On Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens will face off against their toughest opponent yet, the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs, 10-2, boast one of the most electrifying offenses in the National Football League. The group is led by the second-year quarterback, Patrick Mahomes. The gunslinger has targets all over the field, from Tyreek Hill, to Travis Kelce, to Sammy Watkins before he got hurt. The high-powered offense rarely scores under 30 points and has put Kansas City in a position to win games despite the lackluster defense.
The Ravens will enter Arrowhead stadium as underdogs. The 7-5 Ravens barely escaped the bye week alive, while the Chiefs have no need to worry about playoff positioning. The Ravens have fought tooth and nail for every win, every touchdown, every field goal, every first down, every yard, and every inch, while the Chiefs have glided their way past defenses. The Ravens suffered crushing defeats and heartbreaks this season, while the Chiefs no nothing but winning. The Ravens are supposed to lose this game, while the Chiefs are supposed to win it.
There’s no question that although the Ravens are the underdogs, the Ravens Flock will be cheering them on. Without knowing who will be at quarterback, the Ravens Flock will still stand by the team’s side. That’s what makes the Ravens Flock so special. Win, lose or draw, the Ravens Flock stands with its team and never ceases to cheer them on.
On the eve of such a big game, when Baltimore sits at the forefront of the playoff hunt, when the Ravens need a signature win to ignite the final playoff push, all the Ravens can do is wait. Wait for the lights to shine brightly at Arrowhead. Wait to hear the boos of the crowd. Wait to feel the loudest stadium in the NFL rock. Wait for a chance to prove themselves. The Ravens can do that tomorrow with a win in Arrowhead. It may be improbable, it may seem impossible, but if there’s one thing the Ravens have taught us over the years, is that you can never, ever, count them out.
