With kickoff approaching, the Cleveland Browns and Kansas City matchup is one of the most highly anticipated contest of Week 1.

The Browns are underdogs in this one, which is no surprise, as they’re playing in one of the toughest road venues in the NFL–Arrowhead Stadium.

That said, the Browns dramatically improved on the defensive side of the ball during the offseason, and while they–or no one really–will stop Patrick Mahomes and company, Cleveland certainly has the personnel to make life difficult for No. 15.

The Chiefs aren’t exactly a perfect team, either, and the Browns might be able to expose some of their vulnerabilities. 

The NFL comes down to playmakers making plays, though, and the Browns are going to need several breakout performances to leave Week 1 with a victory.

Here’s four Browns Cleveland needs to ball out in order to shock Kansas City in Week 1.
