Denzel Ward, Myles Garrett are young challengers for the Chiefs great offense

Scouting The Offense
The Browns are once again in complete turmoil this season. After losing to one of their biggest rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dorsey decided it was time to move on from head coach Hue Jackson. Jackson’s firing was a surprise to no one, after posting a record of 3-36-1 over two and a half years. Most were surprised that Jackson was even retained as the head coach when Dorsey initially took over. The prevailing thought was that offensive coordinator Todd Haley, a former Kansas City head coach, would eventually take over.

This assumption turned out to be entirely wrong. An hour after Jackson was let go Cleveland also let go of Haley. Losing both the head coach and the offensive coordinator on the same day is never a good thing, following that up with the appointment of Gregg Williams as the interim head coach was just about the worst thing the team could do. Williams for those of you who don’t know, or may not remember, was the defensive coordinator for the New Orlean Saints during the Bountygate scandal that followed the team’s first Super Bowl.
A team with this much dysfunction may find it hard to play against the Chiefs, the number one offense in the NFL. Things are not entirely lost for the Browns; they drafted Baker Mayfield with the number one overall pick during the 2018 NFL draft. The last time that Mayfield and Mahomes both played on the same field there was an offensive explosion. While we may see that from the Chiefs, there are some questions about whether or not the Browns 20th ranked offense will be able to keep up.
Outside of Mayfield, there are still talented players on the team. After trading Carlos Hyde to the Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland’s second-round pick Nick Chubb has taken over the starting role. Chubb is currently averaging an insane 6.1 yards per carry. Chubb has to be excited to be going against this Kansas City defense that has already been giving up 5.4 yards per carry. Add in the tight end David Njoku and Jarvis Landry as Mayfield’s downfield targets, and you have plenty of weapons for the Chiefs to worry about.
