In what was billed as a potential Game of the Year candidate, a “Preprint of the AFC Championship Game” and a “Battle of the Heavyweights – Kansas City Chiefs made the Baltimore Ravens look as if they were wrestling up a few weight classes.
The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Baltimore Ravens on Monday in a battle for AFC West supremacy and the rookies were excellent again.
In what was billed as a potential “Game of the Year” candidate, a “pre-print of the AFC Championship Game” and a “Battle of the Heavyweights”, the Kansas City Chiefs made the Baltimore Ravens appear like they were wrestling up a few weight classes.
The chiefs dominated the contest on both sides of the ball and then accumulated by defeating 27-10 at halftime into the second half to win with 34-20 final. The defending Super Bowl Champions had many standouts in the competition, including veteran receivers and tight ends on offense and defensive areas.
But it was not just the veterans who showed up and showed out on Monday night — the rookies from Kansas City also continued their excellent play they showed in the first two matches of the season.
Let’s take a look at what the Chiefs rookies did in their much-anticipated showdown with the Ravens.
BoPete Keyes was once again inactive against the Ravens (week one being the other). Kansas City gave up a 2nd round pick 2021 to pick the cornerback in the 7th round of the draft. With a perpetually empty cornerback room could Keyes see his first official field hockey on Sunday against New England?
Yasir Durant says :
Similar to Keyes, Durant has yet to see game action this season. This is a bit of a surprise as an undrafted rookie free agent behind many veterans on the offensive line interior. The chiefs had a late strewn guard who was taken to the hospital Monday night. If he missed Sunday’s game, Durant may be active for the first time in his young career.
Lucas Niang (COVID)
Lucas Niang, who was picking the third round, opted out of the season before it started owing to COVID concerns.
