KC Chiefs who played well vs Browns – No. 4: L’Jarius Sneed
L’Jarius Sneed has been so darn good for the Chiefs as a rookie and is looking like he could be the steal of the 2020 NFL Draft. Sneed had the only sack on Mayfield while also recording six tackles (two for loss). He’s been a huge piece in this secondary and it’s been great having him back and healthy.
Sneed was tasked with having to slow down Jarvis Landry and he did his job admirably, limiting Landry to just 20 yards off of seven catches. While Landry did find the end zone, it wasn’t entirely on Sneed.
Sneed will have a much tougher task next week with attempting to slow down Stefon Diggs, but Chiefs fans know if anyone on this team can limit Diggs, it’s Sneed. The rookie from Louisiana Tech has been unstoppable down the stretch.
KC Chiefs who played well vs Browns – No. 3: Darrel Williams
With no Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Le’Veon Bell still being limited, it was up to Darrel Williams to make something happen for the Chiefs in the run game. He stepped up to the challenge and made the Chiefs’ run game look admirable, carrying the rock 13 times for 78 yards while also hauling in four catches for 16 yards.
Williams was the RB3 just a few weeks ago and here he was, stepping into the starting role in a playoff game and not missing a beat. Hopefully, Edwards-Helaire is ready to go next week, but if he can’t play, Chiefs fans know they can count on Williams to get the job done and pop off some big runs.
