KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The question, “Who will the chiefs play in the divisional round of the playoffs?” has finally been answered.
It will be the Cleveland Browns, after they eliminated the Pittsburgh Steelers, 48-37.
This will be the first matchup between these two teams since 2018. The Chiefs won that game by 16, but a lot has changed since then.
The Browns present a unique matchup for the Chiefs on both sides of the ball. They can control the clock through their dynamic running game, and their defense can get to the quarterback.
But what fans want to know is which version of the chiefs will show up on Sunday?
It’s not a question often asked about a 14-win team, but the Chiefs aren’t your typical team. They’ve shown many times how good they can be, especially in a late-game comeback. But even with some big late season wins, fans were left wanting more.
Sunday’s game against the browns will be a good test, especially for the KC defense. The focus will be stopping the one-two punch of running backs Nick Chubb and former Chief Kareem Hunt.
The chiefs cut Hunt during the 2018 season. Now, he has bounced back with the Browns.
Patrick Mahomes – Travis Kelce – and Tyreek Hill will look to fire it back up against a very good browns secondary.
The teams will battle it out this Sunday at Arrowhead. Kickoff is at 2:05 p.m. on Sunday.
