In the most recent clash, in 2020 – a 34-20 victory for the Chiefs – the Ravens hub even mentioned that Mahomes’ troop was their “kryptonite.”
“They might have beaten us three times, but that’s a thing of the past,” added Jackson. I do not feel sorry for these defeats. We will be ready to play Sunday night. ”
