Baltimore Ravens vs Kansas City Chiefs week 15: Jimmy Clausen is the starting quarterback

The Baltimore Ravens and head coach John Harbaugh played coy earlier this week with announcing their starting quarterback for the week 15 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Saying that it could be Matt Schaub or Jimmy Clausen, fans and analysts were arguing over who should be the guy under center this week. Word finally came down that Jimmy Clausen will be the starting quarterback.

After franchise quarterback Joe Flacco went down with a torn ACL and MCL, the Ravens turned to backup quarterback Matt Schaub. The former Pro Bowl quarterback failed to impress and eventually was injured against the Miami Dolphins. To help deal with the injury, the Ravens have since signed Jimmy Clausen and Ryan Mallett.

With Jimmy Clausen doing good work against the Seattle Seahawks in the first half of the game last week, the Ravens would be smart to go with the guy that hasn't given up two pick-sixes. I still stand by the idea that the Ravens will continue to say that Matt Schaub is too hurt to play and will ride with either Clausen or Mallett moving forward.
