Key Matchup

Browns wide receivers vs. Chiefs defensive backs

Before everyone freaks out about how underwhelming the Browns wide receiving core has been this year, hear me out. Yes, I am aware that the Browns wide receivers have been very disappointing this year especially in last week’s game.

However, the Chiefs defensive backs also have not played well.

Kansas City has given up 243.2 passing yards/game, which is 17th in the NFL. They have also given up 24 passing touchdowns this season.

The Browns should get the ball out early throughout the game on passing downs. That is due to the injuries along the offensive line and the talent the Chiefs have along their defensive line.

It will be up to the Browns wide receivers to get open quickly in to move the ball up and down the field. If they can do so consistently, the chances the Browns chances on winning the game will skyrocket.

If not, the Browns cannot pull off a win.
