Browns vs Chiefs Preview

The Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns will kick off their 2021 campaigns this Sunday in a highly-anticipated rematch of last season’s divisional-round matchup that went down to the wire.

In that game back on Jan. 21, the Chiefs outlasted the Browns, 22-17, on their way to a second consecutive Super Bowl appearance. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was knocked out of the game with a concussion in the third quarter and it was back-up QB Chad Henne who stepped in to salt the game away during a critical, late fourth-quarter drive. The Chiefs’ attempt at a second straight title was ultimately stymied by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who knocked them off the pedestal with a 31-9 thumping in Super Bowl LV.

In response to the poor Super Bowl performance, the Chiefs went out and completely re-did their offensive line in the offseason, bringing in five new linemen, including three rookies. As a part of the overhaul, the Chiefs traded a first-round pick to the Baltimore Ravens for tackle Orlando Brown, Jr. and signed former Patriots guard Joe Thuney to a five-year, $80 million deal.

The bolstered line will look to give their franchise QB ample time to find his two All-Pro weapons, wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce. Both are coming off of tremendous 2020 seasons, with Kelce setting the single-season yardage record for a TE with 1,416 receiving yards, and Hill setting a career-high with 15 TDs and tying a career-best 87 catches.

Mahomes knows what kind of challenge the Chiefs will be facing in the Browns.

“They have a lot of good players, that’s the biggest thing,” Mahomes said. “They have talented players at every position, a mixture of younger players and veteran players, and players that have made plays in this league for a long time.”

The Browns are loaded on offense, returning all 11 starters from a 2020 season that saw them reach the postseason for the first time in 18 years and win their first playoff game in 24 years.

Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield will have extra incentive as he comes into this season playing for a contract extension. The 26-year-old Mayfield will get one of the game’s most explosive talents back on the field in 2021, with the return of wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. The three-time Pro Bowler suffered a season-ending knee injury halfway through the 2020 season.

“People forget how truly fast he is and to be able to take the top off defenses,” Mayfield said. “Safeties have to worry about that. Teams will have to defend it and pick their poison because we are a physical, run-first mentality team, and that is not going to change, no matter who we have out there at receiver.”

The Browns will feature an overhauled defense this season, with as many as nine new starters taking the field including former All-Pro defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and former Rams safety John Johnson III. Clowney will join forces with Myles Garrett to create one of the league’s most formidable pass-rushing duos.

Arrowhead Stadium will look and sound a whole lot different on Sunday than when the Chiefs and Browns met in the divisional round of the playoffs in January. The stadium, which was at 22% capacity due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020, has no restrictions heading into this season, and a crowd of around 75,000 is expected for Sunday’s game.
