When you walk into Arrowhead stadium in Kansas City, this inside is full of digital banners proclaiming that you are in fact in the “NFL’s loudest stadium.” Through the first two quarters of the Ravens’ divisional playoff game against the Chiefs, you would have thought that was possible. However by the second half, after a few Ravens’ touchdowns and some Chiefs’ turnovers you could here a pin drop.
The Ravens played what was most likely their most complete game of the season with big plays on both offense and defense. Joe Flacco and Todd Heap had record games and the defense recorded 5 turnovers. This type of blowout win is exactly what we need as momentum going forward into a very hostile Heinz Field in Pittsburgh next week. We know what to expect and so do the Steelers. Its going to be a thrilling game. Hopefully the Ravens come out on top.
I picked out a few more images than normal just because it was the playoffs…I hope you enjoy them.
On Monday, September 13, the Baltimore Ravens opened their 2010 season with a big win against the New York Jets. It was the first ever regular season game in the New Meadowlands Stadium and the Ravens are officially in the stadiums history books. I don’t normally travel with the Ravens unless we are in the playoffs, although I have traveled twice this season with the team to D.C. and St. Louis. Since the game was so close, I decided to drive up myself….and boy was it worth the trip!
Despite a “clear and sunny” forecast, about an hour before game time it began to POUR! They delayed the game for a while because of the lightning. Luckily the rain eventually stopped and it was nice and clear for the kickoff and the remainder of the game. This was pure smash mouth football! Both teams were a little rough around the edges, but the Ravens just had more heart at the end and made a couple of big plays and put away the victory 10-9. Here are some of my favorite images from the game. Enjoy
