The Chiefs and Ravens squared off in a highly anticipated Monday Night Football matchup that proved to be an exciting game for Chiefs fans.

Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback in football, and he proved it on monday night. The Chiefs beat the Ravens in a rather impressive manner, walking into their home and picking them apart piece by piece.

After being doubted and counted out before the game even started, Mahomes and the Chiefs went out and reminded the NFL who the reigning Super Bowl champions were. Mahomes ended the day with 5 total touchdowns and 385 yds (while also accumulating an NFL record).

Electricity on Offense

Andy Reid had himself a hell of a day. Going into Baltimore, the Chiefs knew it would be a tough battle, where any mistake could cost them the game. Reid broke out his bag of tricks in this game, and oh boy did he have fun. He employed numerous tricky screen plays throughout the game that left the Ravens defense gasping for air.

It was clear Reid wanted to send a message. By dismantling one of the toughest teams in the AFC, he did just that.

Stopping Lamar

As cohesive and dominant as the Chiefs offense looked, the defense were the real heroes of the game. Lamar Jackson struggled, being limited to just 97 yards passing, 83 yards rushing, and 1 TD. Throughout the night, the Chiefs had an answer for almost everything the Ravens threw at them. Steve Spagnuolo dialed up a masterful game plan, getting pressure on Lamar and making him uncomfortable the whole game.

Jackson and the Ravens looked stumped, and found it very hard to move down the field and establish the run. After returning from suspension, defensive tackle Mike Pennel was a huge factor in stopping the run. Chris Jones and Frank Clark also had dominant games versus the Ravens offensive line unit.

Even with a litany of special teams errors, including two missed kicks by Harrison Butker, the Chiefs managed to pull out a two touchdown victory over one of the powerhouses of the AFC. The Chiefs advance to 3-0, with an unassuming Patriots team awaiting them next Sunday. If the Chiefs play as good as they did versus the Ravens, next Sunday will be quite a treat!
