Cleveland Browns Vs Kansas City Chiefs Game Day Preview
The Cleveland Browns are in the Divisional Round for the first time since the 1994. They are hitting the road to face the defending Super Bowl Champs – Kansas City Chiefs.
The Browns are no longer David to the looming Goliath, thanks to a long-awaited release from the clutches of a COVID-19 issue.
After a 1st round bye during NFL Wild Card Weekend, the Chiefs are ready to defend their crown.
Cleveland should regain several players off the reserve/COVID-19 list — Pro Bowl guard Joel Bitonio was removed Friday — while coach Kevin Stefanski returned to practice on Thursday after his own stint with the virus.
“We’re looking forward to getting a full complement of guys,” Stefanski said. “Anytime you get good players back, whether it be injury or COVID list, it’s always a big boost for your entire team.”
Kareem Hunt will also add some additional motivation playing against his old team. A team the cut him in 2018 as a result of a domestic dispute.
Kansas City Chiefs
Patrick Mahomes helped engineer a 14-2 season for Kansas City while passing for 4,740 yards and 38 touchdowns. He will square off against Baker Mayfield as they reprise their old Big 12 shootouts.
“To be able to play against him on this stage is going to be special,” Mahomes said. “I mean, he went to Oklahoma, I went to Texas Tech, so he got the better of me in college, so I’ll try to do my best to win in the NFL.”
Mahomes knows he has the weapons to accomplish that feat, especially after the Chiefs scored at least 31 points in each of their postseason wins a year ago. One of his favorite weapons is Travis Kelce.
Kelce set an NFL record for tight ends with 1,416 receiving yards this year. He and Mahomes sat out in the week 17 loss against the Chargers. A loss that snapped a 10-game Chiefs’ winning streak.
