Baltimore Ravens vs Kansas City Chiefs 18:00GMT

Ravens vs. Chiefs may hinge on how much damage the Kansas City Chiefs are able to do through the air, and their biggest producer on the outside this season was wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.
Bowe hauled in 15 touchdown passes, to go along with 1,162 receiving yards, all career highs by far. He was fully in sync with his quarterback Matt Cassel, and had some absurd games when the Chiefs opened up their offense and decided to throw the ball.
The question for the Baltimore Ravens now is, how do they contain a deadly wide receiver that can make big plays?
Baltimore's Chris Carr and Josh Wilson will be the corner backs tasked with matching up against Bowe, and they'll have their hands full keeping him from getting open down the field.
The health of safety Ed Reed comes into question here, as he dealt with a rib injury throughout the week that caused him to miss some practice time. Will he be at his peak on Sunday and ready to provide help over the top for his two corners?
Baltimore's defense relies on good coverage, and they'll need it against a great player like Kansas City's Bowe. The game could hinge on how well Baltimore's secondary handles Kansas City's biggest receiving threat, so that's an area to watch for sure.
