After a “Sunday Night Football” game between two of the NFL’s oldest quarterbacks, the latest “Monday Night Football” game will feature two of the most exciting young quarterbacks in the league: reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes vs. reigning NFL MVP Lamar Jackson.
The prime-time clash between the Chiefs (2-0) and the Ravens (2-0) could be a preview of this season’s AFC championship game. Perhaps still battling the Super Bowl hangover, Kansas City hasn’t looked that dominant this year as it barely got by the Chargers 23-20 in overtime last week. The Ravens, on the other hand, have looked like a team on a mission with a pair of convincing wins to start the season.
These teams also met in Week 3 last season, with the Chiefs staving off a late comeback effort by Jackson to win 33-28. This year, the Ravens are favored by more than a field goal (3.5 points) to win at home.

Chiefs vs. Ravens score
Chiefs vs. Ravens live updates, highlights from ‘Monday Night Football’
10:33 p.m. — Jackson hits Nick Boyle for a 5-yard TD to open up the fourth quarter. It’s now a one-score game, 27-20 Kansas City with 14:55 remaining.
10:30 p.m. — After three quarters, Kansas City still leads 27-13 but Baltimore is knocking on the door, second and goal at the 5-yard line.
10:24 p.m. — Baltimore’s defense has come to play in the second half. They force a turnover on downs and take over at the Kansas City 49, 3:01 to play in the third.
10:17 p.m. — Ravens get a lengthy drive, but a false start on fourth and short forces them to settle for a 42-yard field goal by Tucker. Chiefs lead 27-13, 6:13 left in the third quarter.
10:03 p.m. — The Chiefs are pulling out all of the stops: a reverse-sweep-flea-flicker to the flats gets them all of seven yards. Maybe a little too much fun though; Baltimore recovers a fumble and takes over at its own 21-yard line, 13:03 to go in the third quarter.
Still, look at this play. She’s a beauty.
9:45 p.m. — Mecole Hardman can’t haul in a near-perfect throw from Mahomes to the end zone. Sammy Watkins grabs one over the middle to set up a 42-yard field goal attempt for Butker, who pulls it wide. That’ll do it for the first half: Kansas City leads Baltimore 27-10.
9:41 p.m. — Mahomes hits Hill over the middle and the Chiefs call timeout with 30 seconds on the clock, ball at the Baltimore 35.
9:39 p.m. — Things go from bad to worse for Baltimore: Chris Jones knocks the ball out of Jackson’s hands and Kansas City recovers. Chiefs have it at their own 49, 45 seconds to go in the half.
9:36 p.m. — Mahomes is hit as he delivers a 49-yard TD bomb to Mecole Hardman. Holy smokes. Kansas City leads 27-10 with 1:48 left in the first half.
9:30 p.m. — Two-minute warning. Chiefs have it, second and 9 at the Baltimore 44-yard line.
9:28 p.m. — Jackson nearly gets picked off on back-to-back throws, but instead it’ll be another punt for the Ravens. Chiefs get the ball back at their own 16-yard line, 4:39 remaining in the half.
9:20 p.m. — After forcing their own three-and-out, the Chiefs get back on the scoreboard as Mahomes hits Tyreek Hill over the top for a 20-yard TD pass. Kansas City leads 20-10 with 6:40 remaining in the second quarter. (Analysis: Mahomes is very good at football)
9:06 p.m. — The Ravens force a three-and-out for the first time tonight and take over at their own 27-yard line with 11:06 to go in the first half.
9:01 p.m. — DEVIN DUVERNAY TAKES THE KICKOFF TO THE HOUSE. That’s a 93-yard return and the Kansas City lead is cut to 13-10 with 12:40 to go in the second quarter.
8:57 p.m. — Mahomes hits Anthony Sherman with an underhand shovel pass for a TD. That was slick. Butker hits this time and the Chiefs lead 13-3 with 12:52 remaining in the first half.
8:52 p.m. — After one quarter the Chiefs hold a 6-3 lead and have the ball, third and 9 at Baltimore’s 23-yard line.
8:40 p.m. — A holding penalty and a sack on third and long forces the first punt of the evening. Kansas City takes over at its own 32-yard line with 4:12 in the first quarter, still leading 6-3.
8:31 p.m. — The Chiefs march right down the field and Patrick Mahomes rolls out for an easy rushing TD. Harrison Butker misses the PAT, Kansas City leads 6-3 with 6:43 left in the opening quarter.
8:29 p.m. — End around for Tyreek Hill on the first play for the Chiefs? Hook it into my veins (yes, he’s on my fantasy team; so what?).
8:23 p.m. — Baltimore gets the running game going early thanks to a big run by Lamar Jackson (and a sweet pitch out play on third down), but the Kansas City defense is able to get the stop and force a 26-yard field goal from Justin Tucker. Ravens lead 3-0 with 9:20 in the first quarter.
8:15 p.m. — That was one hell of an introduction by Samuel L. Jackson. Can we get him to do that more often?
