2012 NFL schedule: Chiefs' 2nd win won't come easy with the Ravens next

Before the season, the Kansas City Chiefs surely hoped to be better than 1-3 when they saw that the Baltimore Ravens loomed in Week 5. Alas, that's where they find themselves as Sunday's noon game against the 3-1 Ravens is upon them.

It'll take a huge upset for Kansas City's disappointing season to turn around in Week 5, as Baltimore looks every bit as powerful as the team that made it to the AFC Championship game last year.

The Chiefs, meanwhile, are coming off a huge loss to AFC West rival San Diego, but Kansas City at least has the benefit of playing at Arrowhead on its side Sunday. Kansas City's home crowd is traditionally one of the best in football. Whether or not the fans can muster enough excitement about a team that has woefully underperformed its expectations remains to be seen.

Sunday's game will be televised by CBS. Here's the rest of the Week 5 NFL schedule. All times listed are Central.
