By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com

"Former NFL quarterback Terrelle Pryor is working out for the Kansas City Chiefs, according to Pro Football Talk.

Stranger things have happened than the Chiefs signing Pryor, but it's difficult to see it eventually happening.

5. Ravens are a threat to Patriots

By Mike Sando - ESPN.com

"It's no shock that the Baltimore Ravens are seven-point underdogs in their divisional playoff game at New England. They are 2-6 overall and 1-4 on the road against teams that finished the season with winning records.

However, there are still some reasons to like the Ravens as an upset pick over the Patriots and as a potential long-shot Super Bowl contender. Joe Flacco has improbably outperformed Tom Brady in playoff games since entering the league in 2008. His life is easier within the context of new coordinator Gary Kubiak's offense. The Ravens' defense, while flawed in the secondary, can stop the run and rush the passer, which gives them the ability to make an opponent one-dimensional."    READ MORE…
