In Week 14 Limited Hayden Hurst Jersey , the Ravens aim to extend their winning streak in a difficult road environment against the class of the AFC. Kansas City’s league best scoring offense, fueled by gifted quarterback Patrick Mahomes under the tutelage of Andy Reid, has carried them to a 10-2 record. Baltimore’s top ranked defense will encounter an electric group of playmakers that are averaging 37 points per game.The all-time series between these franchises is tied at four apiece, yet surprisingly the Ravens are undefeated at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs won the most recent meeting 34-14 over an injury depleted 2015 Ravens squad. Oddsmakers list Baltimore as touchdown underdogs and set the point total at 53, implying a final score of Chiefs 30-23. Since 2016, John Harbaugh has not fared well when the opposition is favored by more than a field goal, the Ravens are winless in seven tries under these circumstances. Reid has recently earned a 7-1 mark in the final month of the regular season, along with a 17-6 home record. Nonetheless, Kansas City allowed 17 fourth quarter points to the dreadful Raiders last week in a closer than expected victory and lost significant firepower due to the suspension of tailback Kareem Hunt. If the Ravens defense can generate a couple of takeaways and the offense can sprinkle a few successful deep passes into their new ball-control identity, they have a puncher’s chance to pull off the upset. Three key matchups:RB Gus Edwards vs LB Anthony HitchensEdwards no nonsense running style has been a major boon for the Ravens in recent weeks. He has averaged more than five yards per carry in a workhorse role over the past three games while breaking a tremendous number of tackles. Baltimore relies on his downhill rushes to stay ahead of the sticks.Kansas City signed Hitchens away from the Cowboys on a 5-year, $45 million contract in March precisely for his ability to stuff the run. While he does lead the defense in tackles with 96, the acquisition has not made the desired impact. The Chiefs 5.1 yards allowed per carry is tied for the worst average and their 14 rushing scores allowed is fourth worst in the NFL.The Ravens resurgent ground attack has been instrumental to their improvement since the Week 10 bye. They will need another productive outing from the undrafted rookie in order to keep pace with Kansas City.CB Marlon Humphrey vs WR Tyreek HillBaltimore’s defense was dominant in Atlanta last week Hayden Hurst Ravens Jersey , but the Chiefs are a greater challenge, primarily due to vastly superior play calling. The Ravens do field the personnel to stop the run and limit their secondary receiving options. However, the Ravens have struggled to mark tight ends all season and will now face the most potent mismatch in the league. With no realistic answer, coordinator Martindale will be forced to accept a big game from Travis Kelce.This dynamic makes Tyreek Hill the x-factor. Perhaps the fastest man in the NFL, Hill is unstoppable downfield, posting a dozen touchdowns along with 17 yards per reception and over 100 yards per game in 2018. Fortunately, Humphrey is currently playing at a Pro Bowl level and also possesses impressive speed.Humphrey’s main objective should be preventing Hill from getting behind him. Preventing explosive plays will give the defense an opportunity to hold Mahomes to field goals. OT Ronnie Stanley vs OLB Justin HoustonIt will be necessary to do some damage through the air versus the Chiefs bottom ranked pass defense. And for as porous as they have been in terms of yardage, Kansas City’s 39 sacks are the second most in the league. Houston, a former All-Pro, has provided ample pressure and multiple turnovers since returning from a midseason injury. Several capable pass rushers require extra blockers, including outside linebacker Dee Ford and defensive end Chris Jones who each have 10.5 sacks this season, so Baltimore can not afford to devote extra resources to Houston.Ronnie Stanley will be tasked with stonewalling the edge defender. The blindside protector is in the midst of his finest professional season but has struggled at times against powerful sack artists. Keeping the Chiefs out of the backfield should promote better ball security. Ultimately Elite Hayden Hurst Jersey , the turnover battle will prove pivotal. The Baltimore Ravens have officially announced that longtime head coach John Harbaugh will be staying on next season, and likely beyond that. In a statement from the team, they confirmed the two parties are in the works on a contract extension and that he will be brought back in 2019.While this may not have seemed to be the right decision (or even a remotely logical one) as recently as a few weeks ago, at this point, it appears to be the correct one. Why? The answer is pretty obvious.In looking at the results over the past few weeks, it’s fairly clear that Baltimore is a different team than the sputtering outfit that dropped three straight games to head into their bye. This directly correlates to a change at the quarterback position which took place following the Ravens coming out of their break.Since that change, Lamar Jackson has gone 4-1, injected life into the offense, and indisputably boosted team morale. His presence has been a huge part of the team’s turnaround and keeping them in the playoff hunt, though he certainly isn’t the only factor.The other major one is in fact Harbaugh, and the Ravens are right to keep around their long time leader for that reason and several others. While several of the issues this year and the last few can potentially be traced back to Harbaugh, the converse of that is the current reality; that he deserves a lot of credit for the turnaround of the past few weeks.Starting off with something already discussed Game Hayden Hurst Jersey , he’s owed a lot of credit for the way he and the rest of his staff handled the Jackson/Joe Flacco situation. It was a pretty complicated one - Flacco was Harbaugh’s guy through and through, and the longtime coach ultimately should’ve been expected to show him requisite loyalty after what had been a tough couple of years for the franchise.Interestingly, Harbaugh played it both ways here. He was excited about the arrival of Jackson and seemed eager to help develop him, but remained steadfast in his conviction that Flacco would be the guy for 2018.This was smart, as Flacco’s experience and newfound health coupled with some pretty strong performances had Baltimore rolling to begin the year. Unfortunately for the longtime franchise quarterback, things began to fall off the rails and the team fell into a rut.What followed is the beginning of the argument for Harbaugh staying with the team. While he had staunchly defended Flacco for years (including this one), he was also prepared for the insertion of Jackson both with his mindset and in the moves he had made.This coaching staff is undoubtedly built to help Jackson have success and he’s done so thanks in no small part to their help. Marty Morninwheg, James Urban, and Greg Roman all deserve credit for Lamar’s early success, as does Harbaugh for putting them into position to help him find it.More than that, Harbaugh’s leadership is among the best in the league, and that’s again been on display this season. Throughout the aforementioned QB situation Hayden Hurst Womens Jersey , some very tough losses, as well as swirling speculation about his job security, he’s remained a steadfast CEO for the team in every sense.This is an underrated quality for a modern head coach as many owners become enamored with the idea of an offensive genius that can both win games and sell tickets. While there’s nothing wrong with going after a coach such as this (a-la Sean McVay) there’s still room for big picture coaches like Harbaugh to continue to succeed.While he may not have the individual offensive acumen of a Pat Shurmur, his leadership is unique for this day and age. This could be exemplified by something such as his “Good” motto, a refrain for when the team is facing some type of adversity.While there’s still a good amount of work that needs to go into this team, including turning Jackson into a more refined player, Harbaugh is still among the better options for the job of doing it. As a result, he’ll be sticking around, which at this point is unquestionably the right decision.
