The Browns faced another tough loss today, at the hands of the Chiefs. The game finished 37-21, where the Chiefs offense showed why they are a force to be reckoned with. The Browns despite the organizational changes, played a good football game however they were met with an exceptional team.
Starting with the first half of play, the Browns opened the first quarter with some positive strides in the offense. The Browns had to settle with a field goal, but thanks to the defense they were still only a score away. The defense only conceded seven points, which came from a passing touchdown to Kareem Hunt. The second quarter saw both teams scoring two touchdowns, the Browns came from Chubb and Johnson Jr. The chiefs came from Kelce and Hunt, the Browns were showing they could battle with the best at this point.
In the second half, the Chiefs came out again firing on all cylinders, scoring 13 points and keeping the Browns scoreless in the quarter. The Browns defense was trying to stop the Chiefs at all costs, but they were doing what they had been all year. The scoring output of the Chiefs has stumped many this year, but Baker and the Browns were still pushing. In the fourth quarter, Baker was trying to get some production from the Browns. Mayfield threw a touchdown pass to Johnson, but it was paired with a failed two-point conversion. Later in the fourth Baker threw an interception, this was while trying to drive the Browns up the field for a quick score. This defense played exceptional in the fourth only allowing Kansas City a field goal, however, it was not enough.
The loss today marks Cleveland’s sixth loss on the season, as they fall to 2-6-1. This game was a well-played one, Bakers interception came with desperation trying to create big plays. Mayfield finished the game completing 69% of his passes, with the two touchdowns. The Browns need to keep pushing, as this was in no way a bad game. Cleveland has another home game next week as the Falcons come to town, with another high powered offense. The Browns with another week of practice, and Gregg Williams leading the team, the Browns will look to break their current four-game losing streak.
