#Browns Preview 12.27.15: Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City #Chiefs

By @mrgroce

This Sunday, the 3-11 Cleveland Browns travel to Kansas City to take on the 9-5 Chiefs. The enter the game with an eight game winning streak and have somehow trimmed the AFC West lead down to one game behind the Denver Broncos. Kansas City seems to be in good shape to continue its success against a team in the running for next year's top overall draft pick. 

The Browns are 29th averaging 18.1 points and were held to 230 yards in last Sunday's 30-13 loss at Seattle. The Browns have allowed at least 30 points in six of seven games and gave up a season-high 182 rushing yards against the Seahawks.

Johnny Manziel has put together some decent showings at quarterback, forcing the Browns to continue starting him as the season ends. They are playing for next season and trying to find out whether the quarterback will be their guy—for at least one season. Luckily, Chiefs pass-rushers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston are both questionable to play this week.

Offensively, Jeremy Maclin has caught four TD passes in as many games. Running back Charcandrick West scored on a 38-yard run last weekend and has averaged 5.0 yards per carry in two games after posting 2.7 in his previous three.

The Browns got Dwayne Bowe in free agency, and the Chiefs got Jeremy Maclin. The results for each team? Cleveland is getting 5 catches for 51 yards from Bowe, while Kansas City is getting 79 catches for 985 yards and 6 touchdowns from Maclin. It's getting harder and harder to write these things.

Enjoy the game folks!
