Fans’ confidence in the Ravens stumbles after OT loss vs. Chiefs

The Ravens went down to Kansas City and valiantly battled the hottest team in the AFC. It took four full quarters plus extra time to end the contest as Baltimore narrowly lost to the the Chiefs.

While some saw this game as great news of Lamar and the defense being capable of going head-to-head on the road with a Super Bowl contender, others felt it continues to show the Ravens aren’t a contender, they’re a tier away.

Film Review: The evolution of the Ravens’ offense

The Ravens traveled to Kansas City to face the Chiefs in Week 14, and despite some expecting this game to be a blowout, Baltimore nearly won. It took an overtime period for the Chiefs to come away with a narrow 27-24 victory. With plenty of help from their defense, the Ravens’ offense stood toe-to-toe with the high-octane Patrick Mahomes led Chiefs.
