Two of the NFL's best quarterbacks face off Monday when Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens (-3.5, 53.5) host Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Here's what could be in store for the two former MVPs.
Ravens can't stop Mahomes
If Mahomes plays anything like he did in his first two meetings with Baltimore, it could be a long night for the Ravens' defense.
In 2018, the Chiefs star threw for 377 yards and two touchdowns on a career-high 53 attempts vs. Baltimore. His 2019 performance was even better, as he tallied 374 yards and three touchdowns with a completion percentage of 73% - the seventh-highest mark in his career.
His high usage in that first contest bodes well for this one. When Mahomes attempts at least 44 passes, he's averaging 3.16 touchdowns per game. He's also among the NFL's best against the blitz, which could mean trouble for a Ravens defense that blitzed a league-high 54.9% of the time in 2019.
In a "down" year for him thus far, Mahomes has already thrown for 513 yards and five touchdowns, including two against the Chargers' stacked secondary. He has 17 touchdowns over his last five games dating back to the playoffs, and the Chiefs will need similar production from him to steal a road win in Baltimore.
