The big name players on the injury report is Chiefs' receiver Sammy Watkins, who did not practice on Thursday and was limited on Friday.

Kansas City Chiefs vs Baltimore Ravens Predictions
With both teams having almost 100% of their team healthy and ready for Monday, it will be a night of both good offense and defense. Mahomes and Jackson continue to showcase why they are the future of their teams respectively.
Both defenses will have a major duty of taking care of the offense, but the Chiefs will have much more work cut out for them. as they are currently ranked 28th in total yards per game. Containing Jackson will be the key to taking down the Ravens.
On the other hand, Jackson can take advantage of the Chiefs' secondary. It will be interesting to see what sort of game plan head coach John Harbaugh will have, as the last time these teams met the Ravens had a run-heavy scheme.
