Mathieu blasts experts' pregame picks after Chiefs victory over Ravens originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

In the most anticipated regular season clash in recent memory, the Baltimore Ravens entered Monday evening's matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs favored to win.

To add fuel to the fire, every analyst on ESPN's Monday Night Countdown pregame show picked the Ravens to win.

So, after the Chiefs defeated Baltimore in convincing fashion, Kansas City safety Tyrann Mathieu took to Twitter to say, in NSFW words, put some respect on the defending Super Bowl champions' name.

"LMAO [explicit] EXPERTS!!! On to the next!!!" Mathieu tweeted shortly after the game concluded.

The Chiefs' official twitter account also got into the fun, posting a screenshot of all the expert picks from the pregame telecast.

Defensive tackle Chris Jones joined in, too.

Kansas City dominated Baltimore for much of the evening, as quarterback Patrick Mahomes' four first half touchdowns (three passing, one rushing) gave the Chiefs a 17-point lead entering the midgame break. Baltimore was able to trim the lead to just a touchdown in the second half, but the deficit proved to be too large to overcome in the end.

Mahomes' outstanding performance (385 passing yards, 4 TDs, 0 INTs) deserves plenty of recognition, but the Chiefs defense stepped up to the challenge on Monday.

Kansas City held Baltimore -- a team averaging 35.5 points per game the first two weeks -- to just 20 points on the evening, with one of Baltimore's touchdowns coming via special teams. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson finished with just 97 passing yards on the evening, the lowest mark of his brief NFL career.

The Chiefs offense might be the NFL's best, but the Kansas City defense is among the league's elite, too. It's just another reason why the defending Super Bowl champions could easily be hoisting the Lombardi Trophy again next February.
