Chiefs vs. Ravens live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Sunday Night Football’ game

By | September 19, 2021

The Chiefs (1-0) will face the Ravens (0-1) on “Sunday Night Football” (NBC, 8:20 p.m. ET) at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland.

Kansas City, which defeated the Browns in Week 1, 33-29, is looking to repeat as AFC champions for the third consecutive season. The Chiefs beat Cleveland last week despite trailing 22-10 at halftime, as quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns while completing 27 of his 36 passes (75 percent). 

Baltimore is coming off a 33-27 overtime defeat to the Raiders, in which it led or was tied for all of the game until the extra period, when Las Vegas scored a touchdown after the Ravens fumbled at their 27-yard line. Baltimore had a solid rushing effort — quarterback Lamar Jackson and running backs Ty’Son Williams and Latavius Murray combined for 179 yards and two touchdowns — but it could not overcome the Raiders’ offense, which recorded 491 total yards, 409 of which came from quarterback Derek Carr and their passing game. 

The Chiefs and Ravens last faced each other on Sept. 28, 2020, which Kansas City won 34-20. Mahomes had 385 passing yards and four touchdown passes in that game, as the Chiefs led 27-10 at halftime and out-yarded Baltimore 517 to 228. Jackson only had 97 yards passing, was sacked four times and lost a fumble in the game. 

Kansas City leads the all-time series against Baltimore, 7-4, and has won each of the last four meetings.
