The Kansas City Chiefs got off to a slow start, but they finished well and were able to get a win over the Cleveland Browns.
Another season opener, another win for the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs were challenged when they got the season started against the Cleveland Browns and Kansas City narrowly got the victory, but a win is a win and a 33-29 win is still a win.
So what can Kansas City fans take away from that win? Well, here are three thoughts on Kansas City’s win over Cleveland.
No. 3: The Kansas City Chiefs have some work to do on defense, but Cleveland’s offense will put points up on anyone
It’s alright to be concerned or frustrated with how the Kansas City Chiefs performed on defense on Sunday. Things were far from perfect for this group and there’s a lot of growing that needs to be done by the Chiefs.
All that said, the Cleveland Browns have an offense that should be able to score on just about anyone in the NFL. With the sort of talent the Browns have on offense (from Odell Beckham Jr. to Baker Mayfield to Nick Chubb and everyone else in between), it’s not a shocker that Cleveland proved to be difficult to stop.
Despite a less than stellar start for the defense, Kansas City managed to slow Cleveland’s offense down in the second half.
The Browns roared out to a 22-10 advantage in the first half of this game, but the Chiefs found a way to hold Cleveland to seven points in the second half. Meanwhile, Kansas City went out and scored 23 points in the third and fourth quarters.
This group could definitely stand to play a more complete game, but all things considered, it wasn’t an awful showing.
