- The view of Kansas City Chiefs star running back Jamaal Charles dashing away from them and grinding up yards induced a slow burn for the Ravens' defense. Growing more angry by the minute as Charles repeatedly accelerated and juked away from pursuit, the Ravens knew they had to change their strategy . Otherwise, they could have lost Sunday's game at Arrowhead Stadium instead of escaping with a 9-6 victory. "We got mad because they were bleeding us real good," inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe said.

A helmet to the chest from Kansas City Chiefs center Ryan Lilja rudely greeted Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis, a punishing blow reinforced by Lilja shoving the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year to the ground. Lewis suffered similar rough treatment from Chiefs guards Jeff Allen and Jon Asamoah, each seemingly taking glee at crashing into the respected 13-time Pro Bowl selection. Unable to shed blocks or consistently chase down backs in the open field, Lewis was repeatedly left grasping at air as Chiefs star runner Jamaal Charles sprinted around him to pile up 140 yards during the Ravens' 9-6 victory last Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

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.

Each week, Baltimore Sun reporters Aaron Wilson and Matt Vensel will look back at the Ravens' previous game and that of their next opponent. Chargers 37, Chiefs 20 Strategy: On Sunday, it appeared the Chiefs' offensive strategy was to shoot themselves in the foot. They turned the ball over six times, including four times in the first half. Despite falling behind early, they were relatively balanced, giving the ball to speedy running back Jamaal Charles and throwing the ball all over the field, often times to physical wideout Dwayne Bowe.

Go for the running backs Matt Vensel Baltimore Sun There might be a temptation to take Eagles quarterback Michael Vick early in your fantasy draft — the Michael Vick experience is a bigger thrill when he's on your team — but the first three players off the board should be running backs. Adrian Peterson was a top-three fantasy back in each of the last three seasons, averaging 1,480 rushing yards and 14 total touchdowns during that span. Even though there are questions about Donovan McNabb and the passing game, the Vikings back is a lock to make it four seasons in a row. There's something to be said for having that kind of security.

If it weren't meaningless in terms of wins and losses, Friday night's preseason affair with the Chiefs would have an interesting storyline as three former Ravens return to Baltimore. The final score doesn't matter, though, so Le'Ron McClain, Jared Gaither and Kelly Gregg can't get revenge against their former employers this time around. All three players were deemed expendable by the Ravens in the offseason, but you can expect a lot of smiles, hugs and handshakes at M&T Bank Stadium.

Chances are a running back will be the first player to come off the board in your fantasy league unless one of your fellow owners has a serious crush on Michael Vick or is the father/mother/sibling/spouse of a current NFL player. Running backs no longer the first dozen players off the board in fantasy football -- and honestly, that makes things much more interesting -- but an elite back is still the way to go if you're picking first overall. So who should you take with the first pick?

There are different classifications for victories. There are good wins and great ones. And there are close wins and ugly wins. The Ravens came up with a new category Sunday. They were pitiful. Just pitiful. It was downright frustrating enough to make you kick the cat, cuss the dog, throw a brick through the TV or worse yet, become a baseball fan for life. Nasty, ugly, boring. Those words could be used to describe the Ravens. Kansas City was even worse. There are no adjectives to describe the Chiefs.

The Kansas City Chiefs have pledged to work on protecting the football. The Ravens are hoping that the Chiefs will wait another week before finding the solution. Kansas City has committed a NFL-worst 15 turnovers, including a league-worst eight fumbles. The team's inability to avoid turnovers was highlighted in last Sunday's 37-20 loss to the San Diego Chargers, who took advantage of three Matt Cassel interceptions, two Jamaal Charles fumbles and a Shaun Draughn fumble. But several Ravens players said they are expecting a different Chiefs team to take the field at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday than the one that has been so turnover-prone recently.

Looking back at it three and a half years later, the 2008 NFL draft produced a strong crop of running backs. Darren McFadden, Matt Forte, Rashard Mendenhall and Jamaal Charles are all starters now. Jonathan Stewart, Tim Hightower, Felix Jones, Tashard Choice and Steve Slaton have each had their moments. And then there are Ray Rice and Chris Johnson, two of the very best runners in the NFL, whose skills will be on display Sunday afternoon when the Ravens travel to Nashville to take on theTennesseeTitans.

After they uncharacteristically allowed 129 rushing yards in their season-opening win over the Cincinnati Bengals, stopping the run seemed to be the biggest concern for the Ravens defense. But the Ravens have spent the last three weeks watching footballs whiz past their ears and into the arms of receivers. Only three teams have been victimized for more passing yards than the Ravens, who rank 23rd in the NFL in total defense. But while those struggles against the pass remain a primary concern, the Ravens have quietly gotten back to smothering running backs.
