I'm in the car today.
Well, different by the head and work.
But I wanted to get all sweaty.
Sportscaster first shot into the Unwrap Source network for sponsoring this and also shout out to the finish line of podcast.
Make sure you follow us on Twitter at N B a r Finish line Sports Um, I want to talk to you about the Chiefs and Ravens game.
This upcoming Sunday is a huge game.
I'm excited to see my boys play Pat Mahomes and those guys I hate.
The tree kill isn't healthy because I feel like even if we win this game, they're gonna have Asterix Sand that the Chiefs didn't have a complete team, which we all know the chief still have a complete team even without Cerie kill.
But I think this will be interesting game reason being is because last year we were able to ah kind of contain the Chiefs in the sense we didn't completely stop.
Pat Mahomes still had a good game against this, but we were able to keep the ball for a majority of the possession of the game, which I think is gonna be one of our keys to winning the game this week.
Um, if the Ravens can run the ball effectively with Mark Ingram, just Edward's justice Hell, on those guys with Islam or Jackson, I think that will be able to win this game, probably by a touchdown.
Maybe if you'll go.
I think you know Justin Tucker's gonna be pretty useful throughout this game because I feel like there might be some times when we get to the red zone, but we don't end up punching it in.
We have a good enough team to do that.
I just want to make sure we do, Uh, you know, score every time we get into that red zone.
Um, the big thing about the chief's, though, is their big A big, uh, threat when it comes to big place.
So the Chiefs can score quickly and fast and back to back to back.
They scored four touchdowns in 1/4.
I think Patrick Holmes had 278 yards in the second quarter against the Chiefs, which is just unprecedented, you know, I'm saying, um I think that's something that our defense will be able to contain.
No, I don't think there are defense is gonna be ableto completely stopped petrol in homes this year, but I think we'll be able to contain it.
Um, our safeties are veterans in Oakland's are, you know, And they were banged up.
That safety is well, with John aprons out, Um, our corners.
I think we have locked out corners tomorrow.
Humphries, I think I think it's all gonna come down to the defensive scheme that we end up coming out with against Pat Mahomes in the Chief's, because I don't think the Chief's we're gonna be able to run the ball as effectively as they probably think they would be able to.
Our friend is a lot better than a lot of people give us credit for, even with all of the guys that we lost in the off season, Um, I think it would be exciting to see what actually happened.
Is this Sunday? If you guys are big into fantasy, I'm gonna go through some guys that you may want to pick up for your fancy this week.
Um, one guy, one guy for the chief's mico hard Me.
I think he's gonna have a pretty good game, like so we're gonna slow them down, but we're not going to stop them.
They're gonna be just as effective as they would if they were playing any other team.
I think that our team is just gonna be ableto edged them out.
So if there's somebody that you want to start this week, I would say if you if you have them or if you can get him off the waiver wire.
Nicole harm, you may have a pretty decent game, um, against us, because sometimes the Chiefs can explore this deep.
I think it'll be a little different this year now that we have Earl Timings.
Last year we did have very well, though.
So, you know, I don't see it being too crazy of a difference with all times, but I think we'll still be ableto p pretty effective against the Chiefs.
Um, another guy.
I got Mark Ingram starting in about two of the league's He's not my RV, Wendy's Barbie to, or if you have a minute flex position, depending on how deep you're and running back and started lease, you may be able to have him as well as to other pretty solid running backs.
um, and one of my leagues that I had to to quarterback league, and it's only eight of us.
I went heavy on wide receiver start end up picking up Michael Thomas and Julio Jobs, which kind of pays a lot of dividends here, um, here out now.
But if you have a flex position that you're looking to feel, or if you have Barbie to position, you want to feel trading for Mark Ingram might be really good for this game being that the Chiefs are going to allow us to run the ball.
And the one thing I know about the way that we run our read option, you know, these 1st 2 weeks is that we can run the ball effectively and that will open up the passing game, which Mark Ingram has actually been a pretty big part of that as well.
So if you're looking for a dual threat, come running back, marking will be a guy.
Um, I wouldn't play just, uh thus Evers.
Guess that was, had it hell of a year last year.
But towards the end of this season, it's just that he's not getting the same amount of touches marking and I think that's why we brought marking or in we wanted somebody to be able to come in ground and pound, you know, uh, and make big plays.
And not to say that there was, can't I just think that, you know, Now we're rocking, marking them as I got another guy that you have to start if you haven't done this in your flexor, your wide receiver to position is Hollywood Brown marquees.
Brown is a stud, and he's starting to become one of Lamar Jackson's favorite targets, you know? So I would say if you have any of these guys that I'm saying you definitely want to start this week, they're definitely gonna have a pretty solid game against the Chiefs defense.
I've been deceived.
Defense is probably gonna get exploded, exploited a few times.
Like I said, Do you think we do have control of the time of possession, though, if we can control the time of the possession for the actual game, that's going to set the difference between us winning and losing.
Um, because if Pat Mahomes gets cold, which we don't know if he will get cold or not, you know he's a pretty solid quarterback, regardless, if he's been on silent for a lot of creative time or not.
But if we can get him out of his ribbon, you know that is a way that the Baltimore Ravens will be able to pick him apart, showing different coverages.
Being able to, uh, get a pass rush on all those type of things, we are going to allow the Ravens to win this game.
Um, some of the things that the Chiefs have to do, they're gonna have to get Travis Kelsey involved on every play, whether it's blocking, whether that's coming out one out routes or post routes like seems, um, Travis Kelsey is one of the best hiding is in our league right now.
Him, Zach, there's George, kiddo.
Um, if you have Travis Kelsey, you're gonna want to start him way.
We have solid matchups, the tight end position where we can have some of our linebackers guard him as well as some of our corners.
But he's just such a big and physical guard are tight end.
It's gonna be hard to cover him throughout an entire game and, ah, you know, we want to win a game in 60 minutes.
You gotta pull all of the things all the stops out that you can.
So I think that Travis Kelsey would be a good fantasy guy if you want to play this week, Um, 11 play that I would not play.
And this and this is even me being, Ah, a Ravens fan.
I wouldn't play the Ravens defense.
The reason being is the Ravens defense might get exploited this week.
We may be able to get a turnover, too, but I do think that they're gonna put up a lot of points and a lot of yards, um, for more yards in points.
But, uh, I think that's gonna hurt the Ravens Defense is weak, So if you're looking for a defensive start, I'd probably start either the Cowboys, who are playing the, um, the Miami Dolphins or the Patriots who are playing the New York Jets.
Um, I don't think either one of those teams are going to be able to get an office in a rhythm.
And you know what kind of see what happens throughout the this weekend, But, um, it should be pretty interesting to see what the Ravens decided to do, Um, but also on the ray beside a ball.
If you're looking for a tightening that you might can get for a low cost looking through, either hated hers or Mark Andrews.
Mark Andrews would be my number, one that I would try to get for low cost.
But if you needed a tight end and maybe some of your deeper leads that you wouldn't be able to get Number one hayvenhurst a solid number two, um, reason being Lamar Jackson, like society is on the rollout, and they're starting to run a lot of packages with two tight ends in the actual lineup.
Um, which is pretty.
It has been pretty successful for Lamar because, as you know, Lamar is a dual threat quarterback.
He could run the ball, he can pass the ball.
He's looking really healthy, and he's able to get the ball out pretty quickly.
Um, or just even if he's taking this time, it's because he's getting away from the pressure, which I think our offense of Lana's done a hell of a job this year.
Um, just staying, you know, staying in front of a lot of the defense of guys we've been going against.
I think the Ah, the Chiefs are going to be one of our our tests to show like, Hey, are we a really solid to a no team? I think a lot of people are saying, Well, you haven't played in fire.
You played the Miami Dolphins.
You play the Arizona Cardinals.
Which is true, however, the ah, the Ravens have an it factor with Lamar Jackson.
I think what Mark Jackson is the real deal, and it's not just me saying that as a fan, but just watching him play, Um, just going through the reason he's doing in the way that he's commanding the ball on the line of scrimmage.
Um, he's doing a lot of what people didn't think he could do this year.
And I think a CZ, long as he stays consistent, is honesty stays healthy.
And as long as his weapons, which Hollywood Brown Willie Snead hating her wrists and Mark Andrews have been doing as long as they get open and give him the opportunity to play and throw the ball, there's no reason why we can't compete, you know, at the highest level which I like.
I said I do believe that we might end up winning a F C North now with ah, with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Makes a Rudolph, which is not a square, I think makes rude off.
We'll have a hell of a season, but I don't know if you'd be good enough to compete for the playoffs.
Um, and then when you look at it as well, the Cleveland Browns, they're really good on paper cannot take anything around away from the Cleveland Browns.
But they they don't look like a team that's willing and ready to to take it to the next level just yet.
And that could be some part of the coaching that could be partially because of, um, Baker Mayfield.
But, I mean, you got weapons like Baker, Mayfield, Odell Beckham Jr and Nick's up Jarvis, Landry, David Njoku and hopefully he's okay after that concussion and you've got plenty of guys.
It's just a matter if they all come together toe win gangs.
That first game that they lost to the Titans was crazy and there was at home.
It was a terrible loss form Baker Baker Mayfield turned a bottle of a weighty much.
Um, even turned the ball over once against the Jets, which I'm not saying that.
I think Baker Mayfield has a habit of turning the ball over when he doesn't need to, because he's doing Summers.
And I think what's gonna have to take him to the next level because he's going to start playing better teams than the, you know, the Jets and the Titans.
He's got to take care of the ball, and I think with also with the Bing girls, I don't think they're gonna be making that much noise.
Agent Green probably won't come back until week six or six through eight, Um, which I think gives us a good opportunity to kind of get a head start on the A F C North.
Um, it's gonna take a lot for the Bengals or the Steelers to really make any noise and a F C North because, like I said, I think it is a two man division race.
I think it's gonna be either the Browns or the Ravens, and we right now we are defending in this, uh, a F C North chance.
So I feel like a lot of people are taking us for granted because they didn't think that Lamar Jackson was the real deal.
Like I said, I do believe in Lamar Jackson.
I think he is really? D'oh! Um, and I think Baker Mayfield is a solid quarterback, too.
Don't get me wrong.
I think he is gonna be one of the guys that stays.
And I leave for pretty long time.
He's gotta be carrying.
You gotta be a lot careful.
A lot more careful about the turnovers.
Um, and just making sure he's making smart decisions, not overthrowing the sari is not under throwing, you know.
And no one wants to throw the ball away and know when to take a sack or whatever the case may be.
Um, I'm going back to this ravens and cheese game.
I'm really excited, not get me wrong.
I'm a little free.
I'm kind of defensive about it.
But I think the Ravens come do this.
I think they can win this game.
Um, and if they do in this game, I would be elated.
I was on the person on the finish line podcast that actually said that that I have the Ravens win in this game um, but if we do win this game, it's gonna take a lot out of this.
I mean, overall, Um, And I think with that being said, we may go into a week for depleted a little bit mentally, physically, but I think emotionally this will be a huge win for us.
I think the Ravens need this win.
Um, and I think that, you know, the Chiefs that their division is pretty much is really them.
And the charges, I think this year.
But I think we need this win a lot more than they do.
Um, I think the Chiefs will be just fine if they were to drop this game and still be able to make you be the the West champs.
I think with us the F C North has always been pretty tough division, you know, I'm saying And if if I'm looking at John Harbaugh and you know, we were sitting out having a conversation, I think his goal would be to get a first week by And by this being the chief's.
And if we win the NFC North as well as Khan ago, maybe.
You know, 12 and four.
Um, I know It's high hopes right now.
But if we were able to which I definitely believe that our team is strong enough to do something like that, that would be huge.
Huge rest, you know, having home court are home food advantage throughout the playoffs.
Um, and get in the first week by that would be here.
Who knows what's gonna happen Because, honestly, the way the AMC looks, the New England Patriots are probably gonna take over.
Um, they look like they might end up being able to go undefeated.
And if they're going to feed it, you know, we might end up running into them in the playoffs, which I hope we do, I want, you know, if we win, I want to make sure we played the best, and I want to make sure that we win against the best.
I don't want to just want to get any regular smuggler team because everybody's gonna put a gastric beside whoever we decided.
Whoever we end up winning with against the Ravens are with the rape.
So, um, solids and my boys, I will definitely come back again, probably tomorrow before Thursday night game.
Make sure you check out my other video about the Jacksonville Jaguars versus the Titans.
