Just as we all thought, the Ravens matchup with the Chiefs ended up being a thrilling battle between two exciting AFC teams. The Ravens came up short for the second year in a row and there were a lot of contributing factors to the loss. We took the time to go through all of them, including John Harbaugh’s aggressive coaching, the secondary’s rough afternoon, and some costly penalties (5:00 SoundCloud, 5:30 other).

There is no time to dwell on the loss though with the Cleveland Browns on the horizon. A lot was made of this Browns team in the off season and this will be the Ravens first look at the new and improved Cleveland Browns. The three of us break down what we are looking for ahead of the Ravens first division matchup of 2019 and what it will take to pick up a bounce back win (39:07 SoundCloud, 39:37 other).

To help us continue the Ravens vs Browns discussion we welcomed on Chris McNeil of the Big Play Reflog show for our weekly Ice Cream with the enemy segment (45:40 SoundCloud, 46:10 other).

The Orioles season is winding down and we have our final players and stinkers to highlight for the 2019 season (1:09:55 SoundCloud, 1:10:25 other). Next week we will have a season review for the O’s and we will follow up on those mid season awards we handed out in episode 59.
