“The Chiefs fatigue that apparently overtook the football cognoscenti this offseason should end sometime around Andy Reid's fourth play call. Few coaches come out of the gates swinging bigger than Reid, who is trying to take a page from Kevin Stefanski's playbook with a road-grading offensive line. The Browns are more talented overall, have a higher ceiling on defense and more weapons on offense. Expect an even better game than last year's tense Divisional Round matchup. ”...

“In his return, Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will catch two touchdown passes from QB Baker Mayfield. It might not be enough against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, but Cleveland's offense can take away plenty of confidence about its potential for the rest of the season. -”...

“The Chiefs will start two rookies and a first-year player (Lucas Niang opted out in 2020) on their offensive line, but no member of that group will be under more scrutiny than veteran Orlando Brown Jr., who makes his Kansas City debut at left tackle against the Browns' Myles Garrett. The Chiefs' rebuilt offensive line, with five new starters from last season, showed well in the preseason but faces a bigger challenge against Garrett and the Browns. In his one start at left tackle for the Ravens against the Browns last season, Brown held Garrett without a sack, one of the four games in which Garrett was shut out.”...

“This game, on paper, should be one of the toughest games on the Chiefs' schedule this season. With that said, the Chiefs and Mahomes have been quite dominant in the month of September in this Mahomes-Reid era — where the team has zero losses and boasts historically great statistical production. This will be no different, with the Chiefs jumping out to a 28-10 lead at halftime with Mahomes throwing touchdowns to Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Byron Pringle. Jones also gets two sacks and consistent pressure throughout the game. Clyde Edwards-Helaire getting his first 100-yard rushing day since Week 6 of last year against the Bills.”...
