2024 NFL Playoff History: Chiefs vs. Ravens
Who leads the all-time series?
The Ravens and Chiefs have met just once in the postseason, facing off in the 2010 Wild Card round. The Ravens won 30-7 and went on to lose in the Divisional round. The Chiefs lead the all-time series between the two teams, 7-5, and are 4-1 in the last five games between the two teams, four of which have featured the Lamar Jackson-Patrick Mahomes matchup that we will see again this weekend.
Who has fared better in recent games?
The Chiefs have fared better as a whole in recent games, but the Ravens beat Kansas City 36-35 the last time the two teams faced off in 2021.
What does this tell us about 2024 game?
In the 2021 matchup, Mahomes finished with 343 passing yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. Jackson passed for 239 yards and rushed for another 107, finishing with two rushing TDs, one passing TD, and two interceptions.
This conference championship marks the fifth matchup between Mahomes and Jackson, both of whom are MVP winners. Mahomes is 3-1 over Jackson, but the Chiefs’ offense this season has not been up to par with the standard set over the last half decade. Jackson may have his chance for a second consecutive win over Mahomes in this Sunday’s championship.
