The Ravens are the better team for sure but their run defense has struggled and if Ngata is indeed hurt it will only get worse.
The Ravens are 3-1 are at the quarter point and are well prepared going into the Chiefs contest. KC is just 1-3 this season but the Ravens are certainly not overlooking them.
The Ravens say they will be fully prepared for their Sunday Night showdown against the Patriots. New England eliminated them from the postseason and going to the Super Bowl just a few months ago.
Joe Flacco had the ball on target and a Ravens touchdown in Jacoby Jones’ grasp. Flacco’s celebration was short lived.
The reason Flacco and the offense may not look as great, but still pretty good, as they did against the Bengals is because it’s unrealistic. Plus, the Eagles are still good in the secondary with Rodgers-Cromartie and Asomugha who will give the Ravens WR’s a hard time
Flacco, Baltimore’s fifth-year QB, has had his share of detractors during his career. But, according to Pollard, you won’t find any of them in the Ravens locker room.
Ray Rice has had success against Bengals defense, and Cincinnati knows their best chance of winning depends on containing him. Their offense has a lot to prove, and in turns offers a great opportunity for the Raven’s defense to open the season strong.

The secondary still worries me because it is supposed to be the strongest unit on the field and Calvin Johnson had his way with them.
Are the Ravens are still a threat in the AFC?
The return of purple fever. The Ravens play Thursday night in Atlanta. And the players and the fans are ready.
The facts can’t be ignored. Joe Flacco has led the Ravens to four straight playoff appearances in as many years he’s been in the league, not to mention two AFC Championship game appearances.
