Staff Predictions Wild Card: Ravens vs Chiefs


Offensive MVP:

Picks By Player Pick Stat Prediction Comments
Gene Winner Anquan Boldin 3 catches, 78 yds receiving, 1 TD The playoffs is where we will see Boldin pay dividends for the team.
Conoon Kim Joe Flacco 333 yds passing, 2 TD Last time Flacco played the Chiefs, he had a field day. Almost 2 seasons later, a much-improved Flacco should see another great day.
Alex Bishop Joe Flacco 287 yds passing, 2 TDs Flacco needs to stay calm in the pocket and be accurate all day.

Defensive MVP:

Picks By Player Pick Stat Prediction Comments
Gene Winner Terrell Suggs 1 sack, 1 FF, 2 TFL Look for T-Sizzle to make an impact— he’ll be fired up. He’s improved his sack numbers and always plays well against the run.
Conoon Kim Ed Reed 1 INT return for TD Ed Reed is a beast in the playoffs. Nuff’ said.
Alex Bishop Ray Lewis 8 tackles, 1 FF Ray Lewis has waited all year for these games.

Gene Winner Baltimore Ravens 20 – 17 The Ravens never make it easy, but they have the edge in experience and physicality for this match-up.
Conoon Kim Baltimore Ravens 20 – 13 Ravens should start strong with a good Flacco-drive, and hold the lead the rest of the way through.
Alex Bishop Baltimore Ravens 24 – 10 If the Ravens slow down Cassel and Bowe, the outcome should come in the Ravens favor.
