The Kansas City Chiefs welcome the Cleveland Browns to Arrowhead Stadium Sunday afternoon as they try to keep pace with the Denver Broncos in the AFC West.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM ET as Johnny Manziel and the Cleveland Browns try to spoil the Chiefs’ party and notching their fourth win in the process.
The Cleveland Browns remain one of the most dysfunctional organizations in football, and their slide toward obscurity dragged them even further after a 30-13 loss in Seattle last week.
The Browns were able to hang with the defending NFC champs in the beginning, but a lack of playmakers and a downright disappointing defense helped Cleveland earn its 11th loss of the season.
Now, the Browns have to travel to Kansas City, another difficult venue for visiting teams to succeed.
The Browns’ offense, even with Johnny Manziel at the helm, isn’t very good. Cleveland ranks 14th in passing, 29th in rushing, and 29th in points scored at just over 18 per game.
The defense, which has been atrocious all season, is 31st in both rushing yards and points allowed. It’s been a terrible season in Cleveland, but this one will be its road finale before finishing the year at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs, riding an eight-game winning streak, are the hottest team in the NFL right now. The Chiefs are averaging nearly 30 points per game over their winning streak, and they have the comfort of playing their last two games at Arrowhead Stadium.
Kansas City ranks 24th in yards, including 28th in passing yards, but ranks 8th in both rushing yards and points scored.
The Chiefs are also getting it done with their defense, a unit that ranks 8th in total yards and 3rd in points allowed. Even without star running back Jamaal Charles, the Chiefs have found substance in backup running backs Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware. As a team, the Chiefs average about 123 rushing yards per game.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Over 42.5
The Chiefs are averaging nearly 30 points per game over the last two months, and Cleveland’s defense is terrible. Also, the average total of Cleveland’s three games against the AFC West this season was 51. Even though this game is in Kansas City, I can see the total reaching 50.

The Chiefs will leave Arrowhead Stadium with a big win on Sunday.
