The news that Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher had died in a murder-suicide hit Ravens defensive lineman Arthur Jones particularly hard. Belcher was a childhood friend and former wrestling teammate of Jones, who grew up in upstate New York. Highly upset about the tragedy, Jones sent the following text to The Baltimore Sun regarding his memories of Belcher. "We wrestled every year on the same New York state team together since middle school through high school," Jones wrote.

It's not surprising that the Ravens are 10 1/2 -point favorites over the Kansas City Chiefs, the largest point spread in their favor for a season opener in the team's 14-year history. Fresh off a 2-14 season, the Chiefs have endured a rocky summer, firing their offensive coordinator a week ago and watching starting quarterback Matt Cassel injure his left knee Aug. 29. The Ravens, meanwhile, have rolled through a perfect preseason and appear ready to take that next step - to the Super Bowl.

Both coach John Harbaugh and players like center Matt Birk and left tackle Bryant McKinnie agreed that Joe Flacco has been on the receiving end of too many hits lately. The only one who disagrees is the Ravens quarterback himself. Asked if he concurred with Harbaugh's assessment on Monday, Flacco replied, “No, I'm still a young guy, and that's part of playing quarterback, getting hit every now and then. Hey, if you've got to deal with it every now and then, that's what you have to deal with.

Ravens left tackle Bryant McKinnie flew to Baltimore yesterday to meet with team officials and apparently got the answers that he was seeking. "Raven Fans, I was n Baltimore 2day, 2 confirm that ill be there next season," McKinnie said last night on his Twitter account. Was it even a question whether he was coming back? It may not have been much of one a couple of weeks ago as the Ravens don't have another experienced left tackle on their roster unless you count Michael Oher.

The Ravens found their starting strong safety for the foreseeable future when they signed Bernard Pollard as an unrestricted free agent after the lockout ended in July 2011. The 6-foot-1, 225-pound Pollard ranks third on the defense in pass breakups with four and is tied with defensive tackle Haloti Ngata for third in solo tackles with 16. On Sunday, Pollard and the Ravens face the Kansas City Chiefs, who selected him in the second round of the draft in 2006. Is this your first time back to Kansas City since leaving after the 2008 season?

One of the few areas in which the Ravens have been consistently good this season is in their red zone, where they usually send opponents back to the sideline with three points and their tails between their legs. The Ravens are second in the NFL in red-zone defense this season, allowing touchdowns just 26.3 percent of the time. At 22.2 percent, only the Kansas City Chiefs have been stingier inside their 20-yard line. Red-zone defense was one reason the Ravens were able to hang around with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Sunday's 19-16 loss.

Unless you are a football junkie, you probably don't know or don't care that the Kansas City Chiefs hired Chris Ault, the man who invented the Pistol offense and coached Colin Kaepernick at Nevada, to a consulting gig. But it might interest you that the Ravens reportedly expressed interest in adding Ault to their coaching staff. According to Dan Hinxman of The Reno Gazette-Journal , Ault's agent, Bob LaMonte, said that Ault received interest from a handful of NFL teams , including the Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings and the Ravens.

During the first few weeks of the NFL season, it seemed apparent that the AFC North would be hard-pressed to send more than one team into the playoffs this year. The seeming parity in the division pointed to a second-place team finishing around .500, and the sudden emergence of the Kansas City Chiefs as a very strong playoff contender in the West left room to speculate that there really is only one wild card berth in play in the conference. That is all still the case, but the landscape in the AFC has changed pretty dramatically over the course of the first half of the season.

When you arrive at M&T Bank Stadium for today's regular-season opener between the Ravens and the Kansas City Chiefs, you're going to be hard-pressed to find anyone who doubts that Joe Flacco and friends are going to fight deep into the playoffs this season. Really, there's going to be so much purple passion bubbling up around Camden Yards that it might even leave a ring around Oriole Park. And why not? The Ravens shocked the NFL world last year when their rookie quarterback and rookie coach took them all the way to the AFC championship game, and now they are a year older and a year wiser and, you would think, a year better than the team that fell a couple of big plays short of the Super Bowl.

After the most dominating defensive performance by the Ravens this year in limiting the high-flying, then-No. 1 St. Louis Rams offense to 121 total yards Sunday, coordinator Mike Nolan is not worrying about a possible letdown. The Kansas City Chiefs game earlier this season and the maturity of his players relieve him of that potential anxiety heading into Sunday's game against the struggling Miami Dolphins offense and their backup quarterback, Brian Griese. "I'm counting on the fact that we've got guys that act and carry themselves in a mature way to get us through that," Nolan said.
