Facing Chiefs Will Prove Too Much For Turmoil-Embroiled Browns

hue jackson cleveland brownsThe Kansas City Chiefs (7-1), who sit atop the AFC, travel to Ohio to take on the Cleveland Browns (2-5-1), who sit among the teams who are already looking for a new head coach.

The Browns are amid a very tumultuous week as they made the first coaching change of the 2018 season after losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8.

The Browns, who have lost three in a row after a somewhat promising start to the season, fired head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley and promoted defensive coordinator Gregg Williams to interim head coach.

The Chiefs, on the other hand, have the best record in the AFC and one of the best signal callers of the league in Pat Mahomes. In his first eight games, the second-year quarterback has thrown for more touchdowns than what Alex Smith threw for in 15 games in 2017.

Mahomes has a phenomenal arm, great pocket presence, the ability to survive outside the pocket and the advantage of having a head coach that schemes great plays where he doesn’t need to make tough throws but instead takes advantage of all the great weapons around him.

The Browns must find a way to blitz Mahomes to try and rattle him because if they sit back, he will simply dissect them with throws all over the field.

Of course, even if they focus too much on containing Mahomes the Browns may find themselves helpless against running back Kareem Hunt who is expected to attack Cleveland’s rush defense that is among the worst in the game.

Prediction: The Chiefs will win and cover (-8) as they are simply too talented to have problems with a Browns team that has way too much turmoil going on both on and off the field.
