The Kansas City Chiefs will have a tough test when they face the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
The NFL season is about to get underway and the Kansas City Chiefs will get things going when they face the Cleveland Browns. The Browns have a thrilling offense and have been getting their franchise turned around.
While this team was once consistently one of the worst teams in the NFL, the Browns are now a legitimately good team that boasts a ton of talent all over the place. This bunch won 11 games a season ago, made it to the playoffs, and is now looking to prove that it is one of the best teams in the NFL this season.
That’s an absolutely wild thing to consider when looking at the history of this franchise, but here we are.
The Chiefs can’t take this game for granted. As such, here are three members of the Cleveland Browns that the Kansas City Chiefs will need to keep an eye on.
First and foremost, will the Kansas City Chiefs be prepared for Myles Garrett?
The Kansas City Chiefs are breaking in a brand new offensive line and they’re facing off against one of the most talented defensive linemen in the NFL to do just that. When the Chiefs play the Cleveland Browns, they will have to take on Myles Garrett.
Garrett is a disruptive pass rusher who has had double digit sacks over the past three seasons. Interestingly enough, those three years have been the years that Cleveland has been moving in the right direction.
In the four seasons Garrett has been with the Browns, he has totaled 42.5 sacks. 35.5 of those have come over the past three years. Over the four years he’s been in the NFL, Garrett has 83 quarterback hits and 42 tackles for loss. Along with those sacks and quarterback hits and tackles for loss, Garrett has a bunch of tackles as well. In total, Garrett has 152 tackles in his career.
With Jadeveon Clowney now lining up on the offensive line with him, Garrett should have a ton of chances to get to the quarterback again this season.
We’re about to find out just how good this offensive line is for the Kansas City Chiefs.
