After a “Sunday Night Football” game between two of the NFL’s oldest quarterbacks, the latest “Monday Night Football” game will feature two of the most exciting young quarterbacks in the league: reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes vs. reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson.
The prime-time clash between the Chiefs (2-0) and the Ravens (2-0) could be a preview of this season’s AFC championship game. Perhaps still battling the Super Bowl hangover, Kansas City hasn’t looked that dominant this year as it barely got by the Chargers 23-20 in overtime last week. The Ravens, on the other hand, have looked like a team on a mission with a pair of convincing wins to start the season.
These teams also met in Week 3 last season, with the Chiefs staving off a late comeback effort by Jackson to win 33-28. This year, the Ravens are favored by more than a field goal (3.5 points) to win at home.
Chiefs vs. Ravens score
Chiefs vs. Ravens live updates, highlights from ‘Monday Night Football’
8:23 p.m. — Baltimore gets the running game going early thanks to a big run by Lamar Jackson (and a sweet pitch out play on third down), but the Kansas City defense is able to get the stop and force a 26-yard field goal from Justin Tucker. Ravens lead 3-0 with 9:20 in the first quarter.
8:15 p.m. — That was one hell of an introduction by Samuel L. Jackson. Can we get him to do that more often?
(Updates will begin at 8:20 p.m. ET)
