Ravens at Chiefs Week 3: Date, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

Two weeks and two wins have the Baltimore Ravens off to a fast start in 2019. After a 59-10 win in Miami, the Ravens took care of business at home defeating the Arizona Cardinals, 23-17.

While Lamar Jackson may have not replicated the numbers that earned him AFC Offensive Player of the Week following the opener, his Week 2 performance was still impressive. The second-year quarterback threw for 272 yards (including a beautiful deep ball to Marquise 'Hollywood' Brown to seal the game) and two touchdowns while rushing for 120 yards.

Jackson now has seven passing touchdowns in two games, more than he compiled in all of his starts last season.

Defensively, Baltimore was once again solid even while missing Jimmy Smith in the secondary. Despite allowing Kyler Murray to throw for over 300 yards in the Air-Raid offense, Baltimore only surrendered one touchdown late in the game.

Through the first two games of 2019, things have gone about as good as they can for the Ravens. Even with matchups against teams that don't look like contenders, wins are wins in the NFL. But now, the Ravens will face their biggest test yet when they head to Kansas City to face the Chiefs.

Led by reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes, the AFC West leaders are also a perfect 2-0 on the season. Even with the absence of receiver Tyreek Hill for a majority of the two games, Mahomes is already making a case for a two-peat as MVP. Through 120 minutes of action, he's thrown for 871 yards and seven touchdowns, completing 71.4 percent of his passes. 

Mahomes and company will offer plenty of challenges for the Baltimore defense. Travis Kelce, Sammy Watkins and a plethora of other weapons allow Mahomes to disperse his passes all over the field. Come Sunday, the secondary will have its hands full.

The Week 3 matchup is also a rematch of one of the better games of 2018. Mahomes and the Chiefs outlasted Jackson and the Ravens 27-24 in overtime, something the team still hasn't forgotten about

Ravens coronavirus protocols made opt-outs an afterthought for Greg Roman and Don Martindale

Ravens coronavirus protocols made opt-outs an afterthought for Greg Roman and Don Martindale

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, NFL players and staff were tasked with a tough decision as training camp begun. They could either participate in the season and face the risks that come with it, or opt out if they felt unsafe.

For Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman and defensive coordinator Don 'Wink" Martindale, the choice was easy. Based on what they've seen from the team and league in terms of safety, they never considered not coaching in 2020.

"It never really entered my mind," Roman said during a Zoom call with media on Wednesday.

"Well, I think with the protocol that’s been established by the league it's obviously a safe environment its football and I never thought about opting out," Martindale said. "I don’t think they would have ever brought us back if they thought it was a high rate of danger with the pandemic. I felt safe coming back and taking all precautions and protocol, wear our masks and do all of the six feet apart and social distancing."

While Martindale applauds the league's efforts to control the virus, which now includes daily testing through September 5, the Ravens have specifically made an effort to prioritize the health and safety of everyone involved.

From Lamar Jackson opting to become a "Bubble Boy" to Mark Ingram stating that a positive mindset and cautious behavior will benefit the league, it's clear the team has bought into the idea that a season will only happen if everyone is committed to following the protocols to a tee.

Additionally, Roman says he's been blown away with the technology brought in and the extra precautions Baltimore has taken in order to lessen the risk of infection. That includes a device that alerts someone when they are within six feet of another individual.

The pre-planning prior to arrivals and constant improvements were the reasons the offensive coordinator never had doubts about the campaign.

"Resources and planning that this organization put into the facility procedures, it’s a thought that never crossed my mind," Roman said. "Frankly the unbelievable prep forethought, resources, space, that everybody was able to come up with some great solutions, it never entered my mind. If I came and saw something different you never know but impressive what our organization has done in this unique situation for all of us."

With training camp just beginning and contact practices set to get underway soon, there are still numerous obstacles the league will have to face. But through the initial phase, the Ravens have shown that health and safety are their biggest concerns, and that approach won't change. That mentality made opting in the only reasonable choice for Martindale, Roman and others.

"We’re all in this together. Taking care of each other and each other’s families. Show your discipline and mental toughness, wear your masks in meetings," Martindale said. "I've never thought about opting out."

Ravens team doctor won't rule out quarantining Lamar Jackson

Ravens team doctor won't rule out quarantining Lamar Jackson

The Ravens don't have any plans to quarantine the unanimous NFL MVP -- yet.

Head team physician Dr. Andrew Tucker spoke with local reporters on a Zoom call Wednesday afternoon on a variety of topics, including NFL safety protocols, mitigating COVID-19 concerns, and more. He also addressed a popular suggestion among fans online: quarantining quarterbacks.

No team wants to lose any of their depth, but some players and positions are clearly more critical than others. At the top of the list is obviously the team's quarterbacks, and few signal-callers are more essential to their team's success than Lamar Jackson is to the Ravens.

With that in mind, Dr. Tucker was asked if Baltimore is considering any plans to isolate Jackson and the other quarterbacks from the rest of the team, to take extra precautions that the position group doesn't see a coronavirus outbreak during the season.

"Not that I know of. I can't speculate on if things change in the community or change in the team, there might be a different approach. I wouldn't rule it out," Tucker said.

It appears that, for now, the Ravens aren't planning to turn Jackson into a true Bubble Boy. As an organization, they have taken countless steps to keep every player as safe and healthy as possible amidst a global pandemic, and they are trusting their protocols to keep Jackson on the field. But it's notable that Dr. Tucker declined to rule out the possibility of things changing down the line.

Obviously, most teams are in a state of flux in regards to COVID-19, and they all have more information everyday. The impact of the virus spreading both within the organization and the greater Baltimore community could lead the Ravens to reverse course in order to protect their most valuable asset.

Jackson, in his own words, hasn't had "one tick" of coronavirus in him yet. The Ravens are going to do everything they possibly can to keep it that way.
