Browns vs. Chiefs game preview
A repeat of the tense playoff game between these two last year will tell us where both teams stand at the start of the 2021 NFL season. Can the Browns put down a marker early or will the Chiefs come through at Arrowhead Stadium?
One of the key battles to watch in this Browns vs. Chiefs game will be in the trenches when Kansas City is on offense. The Chiefs’ offensive line was widely blamed for the team losing the Super Bowl last season. After re-tooling in the offseason with the addition of Orlando Brown and the return of Lucas Niang, they will be tested by Myles Garrett and his colleagues on the defensive line.
There is also an element of who will be the third weapon for the Chiefs on offense? With Sammy Watkins now on the Ravens, will it be Mecole Hardman or someone else who steps up? For the Chiefs defense, they have a familiar look but there are still concerns over the consistency that unit will bring.
The Browns have a lot of talent on defense and now we need to see them put it all together vs. the Chiefs in Week 1. On offense, they got more out of Baker Mayfield again in Year 3 and they will be looking for that development to continue in Year 4. He should get a boost from the return of Odell Beckham on the outside.
