There's not a whole lot that Matt Birk remembers about the Ravens' 30-7 playoff victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium during the 2010 season. But he does recall one sequence near the Chiefs' goal line that will serve as a reminder this week of the challenge that the Ravens confront Sunday when they return to Arrowhead to face a struggling Kansas City team. "Obviously, I am pretty close to Joe [Flacco] before the snap, and I could hardly hear him," Birk recalled Monday.

The Ravens will hit the road again this weekend and travel outside the Eastern time zone for the first time this season. Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City is considered by players and coaches to be one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL, though the Chiefs are 0-2 at home this year. There have been as many questions about the venue as there have been about the opponents out at the Under Armour Performance Center this week. Anyway, that got me thinking about how the Ravens have fared outside this time zone under John Harbaugh.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Dave Shipman has hit the big time. That's what happens when the owner, general manager and coach of the Kansas City Chiefs have stopped by your tailgate, shared a drink with you and signed a homemade tepee you built. That's what happens when Sports Illustrated begins a special pullout on tailgates by profiling your event. And that's what happens when your tailgate gets to be so popular that you have to split the party in two out of safety concerns. "It's been quite a ride," said Shipman, the 48-year-old founder of "The Tribe."

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Thomas, a nine-time Pro Bowl pick and a former NFL Man of the Year who was paralyzed in an auto accident on Jan. 23, died yesterday in a Miami hospital. Thomas was being transferred from his hospital bed to a wheelchair on his way to therapy yesterday when he uttered something to his mother before his eyes rolled back and he died, according to Dr. Frank Eismont, a neurosurgeon at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Doctors could not specify the exact cause of death and may perform an autopsy, although one of his physicians, Barth Green, said a massive blood clot that entered the lungs probably killed the player.

It's seems like every week it's the same thing. The Ravens deliver another pass-the-Alka-Seltzer performance and everybody — the fans, the media and even the players — refocus on the next game and fantasize that this will be the one where everything comes together for 60 minutes and everybody sees the team that we all idealized at the beginning of the season. Good luck with that. This is the team that turned the infamous Dennis Green rant on its head. In this case, the Ravens aren't who we thought they were, so maybe it's time — right at the start of the postseason — to finally embrace who they really are. The Ravens are a team that won 12 games and tied for the second-best record in the AFC and somehow found a way to look inconsistent doing it. They have proven they can play with the best teams in either conference and have impressed the national media enough to sit among the top four playoff teams in several power rankings, but somehow have failed to instill the same kind of confidence in fans who watch them every week.

Terrell Davis sees the Denver Broncos as a much smarter team this time around. He sees the Broncos savoring their postseason run with too much urgency to experience a letdown like the one Davis thought caused their shocking demise in last season's wild-card round."

Many club level seats were empty in the third quarter of Sunday's final regular season home game against Oakland. One ticketholder said many fans prefer to socialize inside the club level's renovated mezzanine. Others simply stay home. When Chiefs executive Mark Donovan arrived in Kansas City last year, he was facing a worst-case scenario. The team was mired in the worst period of losing in franchise history, the nation's economy had tanked, and work had begun on a major renovation to Arrowhead Stadium that would cost $375 million — an investment that, in part, would pay itself off with luxury seating in a high-dollar club level.

In the final three weeks of the regular season, the Ravens will be fighting for home-field advantage in the AFC, but the key for this team going deep into the playoffs is getting a first-round bye. Having home-field advantage is great, but a lot of teams are capable of winning on the road these days. The New Orleans Saints smacked around the Dallas Cowboys, in Irving, Texas, on Sunday night, and the Ravens beat up the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium earlier in the day.

1. Ravens can't stop NFL's best ground attack. With Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones, the Chiefs have averaged a league-best 182.9 yards rushing at home. But the Ravens haven't allowed a running back to crack 100 yards against them in 13 postseason games. 2. Michael Oher fails to slow down Kansas City's top pass rusher. Tamba Hali led the AFC with 14 ½ sacks this season. That's a big challenge for Oher, who won't be at full strength because he's nursing a right knee injury. 3. Offense flinches in loud environment.
