    Re: OT: Can the Browns Upset the Chiefs?

    Chiefs are the team to beat but they are beatable. Last 7 games have been decided by one score. I think that's significant. This notion that they can coast and then turn it up in the playoffs is misleading. Browns struggled in the 2nd half of the season and turned it up last week. There's something to be said of momentum. Browns have it now while the Chiefs need to create theirs since it would be nearly 3 weeks since their starters have played.
    If the Browns sustain long drives running the ball anything is possible.
    I bleed purple, Big Truss!!

    Re: OT: Can the Browns Upset the Chiefs?

    I've posted before that I believe the Browns matchup better with the Chiefs that any team in the playoffs. I still think that's the case. You can run on that Chiefs defense. Teams get behind and start passing which plays right in their hands. If you can run but then throw effectively in the red zone you will score on the Chiefs and since you aren't shutting that offense down you better score. The Browns get into the multiple TE sets and suddenly Baker can throw all over the place. I'd still put the odds of the Browns winning at about 35% but that's not horrible. Browns at Ravens for the AFC Championship game is a real possibility

    I don't think the Browns matchup well at all defensively but hey I'll be rooting for them all the same and hope we take care of buisness. I just don't see it being close.

    If we host the Browns, we lose. It throws everything out of whack for us, keeps them on theirs and they are out for blood.

    Don't choke Reid. I see it coming.

    Re: OT: Can the Browns Upset the Chiefs?

    Objectively the Browns can upset the Chiefs. The Browns O-line is elite so the Chiefs defense can't play that style of bend don't break against them where they can force turnovers in the red zone. I like the Browns running game against their defense and they execute boot actions well off of their run game which will give them cheap yards to stay ahead of schedule.

    On defense the Browns need to pass rush tactically against Mahomes' deep drop and make sure they don't lose contain at the same time. Also they're getting DBs back healthy which the Ravens haven't even played against all season either. Browns defense is capable of matching up with the Chiefs offense in the pass game and the Chiefs haven't run the ball well lately plus they're missing starters on their O-line. The Browns defense are capable from pass rush and coverage to contain what the Chiefs can do in the passing game, however Mahomes is a freak and could takeover the game himself and bypass all of that lol.

    If the O-line can't protect Baker then you can ignore all this but Baker has to make a few plays under pressure. Chiefs defense best bet is to send creeper simulated pressure to keep more defenders in coverage and get Mayfield under pressure.

    If the Browns had a solid defense I would agree, their OFFENSE matches up quite well. But they just don't have the talent on the other side of the ball to stop Mahomes from absolutely melting them. Who's gonna cover Travis Kelce, who's gonna deal with Watkins/Hardman's speed, CEH/Bell out of the backfield? Denzel Ward is a very good corner and even he will struggle with Hill at times. They just don't have the LB's/CB depth/Safeties to match up.

    I think the Browns offense has a solid amount of success but Mahomes will just absolutely peel their faces off with the amount of mis-matches he has to work with. Ultimately they're just bringing a knife to a gun fight.
