Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, MO
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Baltimore did what it does best, and accomplished something no other team had done in almost a decade.The Ravens' defense dominated in Sunday's 20-10 victory over Kansas City, making Baltimore the first visiting team to win at Arrowhead Stadium in December since 1996.
|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
The Chiefs were persistent running the ball, but Baltimore's front seven controlled the line of scrimmage and limited Larry Johnson's effectiveness. In third and medium or longer, Kansas City couldn't protect Trent Green (above) against the Ravens' fierce pass rush.
Steve McNair's leadership and poise were invaluable on the road. In addition to his intangibles, McNair was crisp, patient and timely in crucial situations.
Baltimore's running game paid huge dividends in the fourth quarter, including a 16-play, 86-yard drive that devoured 9 minutes, 15 seconds. The Chiefs' defense was strong most of the game, but the long drive battered a tired group.
The Ravens are 45-1 under Billick when they get a 13-point lead. ... Baltimore is 4-0 when Reed gets at least two interceptions. ... Suggs became the Ravens' career leader in forced fumbles (14) when he sacked and stripped Green in the second quarter. ... Johnson has gone over the 100-yard mark in nine games this season and in seven of his last eight starts.
