Sunday’s early Divisional Round playoff game is for a trip to the AFC Conference Championship Game. No. 6 seed Cleveland Browns (12-5) travel to Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri to take on the reigning AFC, AFC West, and Super Bowl Champions No. 1 seed Kansas City Chiefs (14-2).
The Browns are the biggest underdog out of all the teams playing this weekend. They have the 3rd-best rushing attack in the NFL, but they’re going against a Chiefs team with the best overall passing attack and total offense. Kansas City and Cleveland both have defenses that are middle of the pack with rankings at 16 and 17, respectively. This game will come down to which defense can make crucial stops whether through the air or on the ground.
Kansas City will host the largest crowd this weekend, with up to 16,000 fans allowed to attend Sunday’s game. Those who are not in attendance can find out how to watch Chiefs vs. Browns below.

Predictions: Browns will be seeing red via Pat Mahomes and the Chiefs offense.
The Cleveland Browns had a great game against the Steelers last week. Fans were happy to see a Browns franchise that hasn’t made the playoffs since 2002 get a win against their division rivals. This week, the Brown won’t be as fortunate. Cleveland has played Kansas City 26 times in franchise history, while the Chiefs have an all-time advantage 13-11-2. Since returning to the league in 1999, the Browns are 3-6 against the Chiefs. Cleveland will need their defense to step up against Kansas City’s offense and the Browns running game will need to keep the ball out of Kansas City’s hands. That still may not be enough, as the Chiefs have shown they don’t need much time to score. Expect the Chiefs to pull away late in the 3rd quarter with a 12 point victory.
