The Pressure is On, But Not On Who You May Think
Despite being the third seed, this is the Chiefs’ sixth consecutive AFC championship game. While they have gained popularity thanks to Taylor Swift, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson is facing more pressure. Jackson is likely to be named the NFL MVP for the second time in his career, but his lack of success in the playoffs is a concern. Can he prove himself in this important game?
The Injury Report Favors Baltimore
Ravens tight end Mark Andrews has made a surprising recovery from his fibula injury and will be active for Sunday’s game. With Isaiah Likely also performing well, the Ravens have two strong options at tight end. On the other hand, the Chiefs will be missing All-Pro offensive lineman Joe Thuney due to a pec strain. This could affect the Chiefs’ offensive line, especially considering their past struggles in the Super Bowl.
Can the Chiefs Hold Onto the Ball?
The Chiefs have been plagued by dropped passes all season, leading the NFL in drops. They will need to improve their ball security in this important matchup. While Travis Kelce has been performing well, other players like Mecole Hardman have had costly mistakes. One misplay could have significant consequences in a game of this magnitude.
Travis Kelce is Getting Hot
After an inconsistent season, Travis Kelce has stepped up in the playoffs. He has caught 12 passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns so far. Kelce is known for his reliability and ability to perform in high-pressure situations. Can he continue his hot streak and be a key factor in the Chiefs’ success?
