NFL Preseason Week 2: Chiefs at Ravens
Kansas City Chiefs @ Baltimore Ravens Fri. Aug. 19, 2011 7:30 p.m. EST
Coming into this NFL preseason, the Baltimore Ravens will be going for a new look as they have added some new faces on offense in order to help this team and up-and-coming quarterback Joe Flacco reach the next level this season. The Pittsburgh Steelers are without a doubt the Baltimore Ravens biggest challenge over the year and this year might be the year they get the best of their division rivals.
In the meantime, the Ravens will be heading into the second week of the NFL preseason to face off against the defending AFC West division champion Kansas City Chiefs. In the first round of the playoffs last year, the Ravens absolutely dominated the Chiefs in order to advance to the second round. The Chiefs were thought to put up a bit more of a fight against the Ravens, but Baltimore was just the better all-around team and the team most deserving of advancing to the next round.
Heading into this preseason game in Baltimore, the Chiefs might be looking for a bit of redemption against the Ravens for that embarrassing loss in the playoffs. The preseason is by no means even comparable to the regular season, but the Chiefs could be looking to make an impression in the first few series of this game against the team that destroyed them.
The Ravens on the other hand could be looking to take it easy as they prepare for the grueling regular American football season. Regardless, these two teams will most likely put on a show early on.
