The Browns and Chiefs will face off in Week 1.
It’s no secret the favorite to come out of the AFC again this year is the Kansas City Chiefs. But, if a team can take out the reigning AFC Champions, two of ESPN’s top analysts think it will be the Browns.
“They’ve improved in the defensive backfield with [Troy] Hill and [John] Johnson coming over from the Rams, and they added Jadeveon Clowney to help [Myles] Garrett with the pass rush, which we know is going to be an issue [with] the Chiefs.,” analyst and former All-Pro Jeff Saturday said on Monday’s episode of “Get Up.”
“The Chiefs defense will not match up well,” Saturday continued. “[The Browns] can run the ball. Baker Mayfield can exploit it down the field with play-action if they do control the line of scrimmage. This is a team that would be built to give the Chiefs a ton of problems.”
Of course, we won’t have to wait long to see if the Browns, indeed, have what it takes to beat the Chiefs. The two will face off in Kansas City this Sunday.
