Head-To-Head: Kansas City vs. Baltimore
The Chiefs, the AFC West champions, started the season 6-1 and didn’t have consecutive wins for the next eight games before closing with victories over the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Chargers. Last Sunday, they beat the Buffalo Bills 27-24 in the AFC Divisional playoffs.
On their way to the AFC North title, the Ravens won 10 of the last 12 games of the regular season. The number-one seed in the AFC playoffs pulled off a convincing 34-10 win over the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round, as Lamar Jackson rushed for over 100 yards to lead the offense for the second time this season.
The Chiefs and Ravens have played each other just 12 times in their history, with Kansas City leading the series 7-5. Their only playoff meeting was in the 2010 AFC Wild Card game, where Baltimore took a 30-7 victory and Kansas City’s pride.

Kansas City vs. Baltimore Predictions
The offensive struggles by the Chiefs in the regular season were silenced in the playoffs, as the offense came alive in their victories over the Miami Dolphins and the Bills. Kansas City has been underdogs this postseason for some reason, led by the running game of Isiah Pacheco, who has 186 yards in two postseason games. The Chiefs' defense must control the line of scrimmage and limit the Ravens’ rushing attack if they hope to get the win on Sunday.
Baltimore is trying to advance to the Super Bowl as the top seed in the AFC for the first time since collapsing in the 2020 playoffs when the Bills sent them home in the Divisional Round, 17-3.
The Ravens have played like the best team in the league all season. Most experts agree that it will take an exceptional game from Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense to beat Baltimore at M&T Bank Stadium. Look for Baltimore to gut out a win and cover here.
Prediction: Baltimore Ravens -3.5
