Kansas City Chiefs vs. Cleveland Browns Week 1 Breakdown
The Kansas City Chiefs travel to Cleveland for the first game of their NFL season. Patrick Mahomes will look to start this year’s campaign off with a bang after being embarrassed by Tampa Bay’s defense in their Super Bowl loss last year. Will that be against this impressive Browns defense?
Baker Mayfield starts his 2021 campaign with incredibly high expectations. After an impressive outing last year that saw the team not only make the postseason but actually win a playoff game against their AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers, the team is expected to go far. Some have even alluded to a potential Super Bowl appearance.
Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots Week 1 Matchup
In one of the most interesting matchups of Week 1, AFC East rivals New England and Miami meet up with two former Alabama QBs at the helm. For the first time in decades, New England will be starting a rookie QB in Mac Jones. Miami, on the other hand, will be going with second-year QB Tua Tagovailoa. After an offseason filled with trade rumors, will Tua be able to prove he belongs as QB1 for Miami?
Week 1 Buffalo Bills vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Preview
Buffalo and Pittsburgh both come into this game with Super Bowl aspirations in 2021. Buffalo just signed franchise QB Josh Allen to a long-term extension and looks to have one of the most complete rosters in the NFL. Pittsburgh, meanwhile, is looking to avenge a rough end to the 2020 season and prove that Ben Roethlisberger still has a few more seasons left in him.
