The KC Chiefs host the Browns in the divisional round in what’s a surprising matchup. How does Madden see the game playing out?

This wasn’t the matchup that Kansas City Chiefs fans expected to be watching this weekend, but the Browns knocked off the Steelers, so here we are. Cleveland started to let up after getting a massive lead (Chiefs fans know that story all too well), so if the Browns do get up big on KC early, the Chiefs should be able to get themselves back in the game (Chiefs fans also know that story all too well).

Does Madden think the KC Chiefs will beat the Browns in the divisional round?

Final Score: Chiefs 33, Browns 24

CHIEFS STATS

  • Patrick Mahomes – 38 of 55, 408 yards, 3 TD, INT
  • Le’Veon Bell – 11 carries, 76 yards; 3 rec, 28 yards, TD
  • Travis Kelce – 8 rec, 118 yards, TD
  • Tyreek Hill – 5 rec, 52 yards
  • Mecole Hardman – 2 rec, 34 yards, TD
  • Damien Wilson – 9 tackles
  • Chris Jones – 1.5 sacks
  • Tyrann Mathieu – INT
  • L’Jarius Sneed – INT

BROWNS STATS

  • Baker Mayfield – 22 of 40, 266 yards, 2 TD, 2 INT
  • Nick Chubb – 17 carries, 106 yards, TD
  • Jarvis Landry – 6 rec, 72 yards, TD
  • David Njoku – 3 rec, 36 yards, TD
  • Myles Garrett – 2 sacks
  • Denzel Ward – INT

This game started off pretty even with the two teams entering the locker rooms at half tied up at 14 points. Despite taking a 24-14 lead in the third quarter, the Browns once again got ahead of themselves and allowed the Chiefs to score 19 unanswered points and win the game.

Chubb ran like a mad man throughout, tallying over 100 yards rushing while finding the end zone once. Honestly, if those were his final stats from this game, Chiefs fans would probably call that a success for the Chiefs defense, assuming the offense could put up points.

Speaking of points, Mahomes played lights out, throwing for over 400 yards and three touchdowns. He did have an interception, but it was early in the game and he rebounded nicely. He took advantage of the Browns’ weakness against tight ends, targeting Kelce throughout and it paid off, as you can tell.

Bell also came to play, finding the end zone on a reception while also doing some major damage with his legs. Bell used to play the Browns twice a year when he was in Pittsburgh so this game will bring him back to those days for sure.

Chiefs fans would be elated if the game ended up going this way and while I think it’ll be closer than a nine-point win, any kind of Chiefs win would be fine, so long as no one gets injured.
