2. Kansas City Chiefs (3-0)
After the Ravens got out to a 6-0 lead following a quiet first quarter for the Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes and Co. once again turned it on with a huge second quarter. KC not only shut the Ravens out in the second quarter, it also dropped 23 points on the Ravens defense to take a commanding 23-6 lead.
Had the Ravens done a better job in the second quarter, they could have won this game.
That’s because that offensive explosion was followed up by just 10 points the rest of the way for the Chiefs. Kansas City watched Baltimore slowly climb back into the game, and had an opportunity to get the ball back down by five on an onside kick that ended up failing miserably. With two minutes left, the Chiefs got the first down they needed to close this one out.
The Chiefs have been great in the second quarter this season, but have to figure out a way to stay more consistent in the other three. The Chiefs get a Lions team in Week 4 that might be playing well above their own heads this season, but is dangerous nonetheless.
