What kind of impact can we expect from Myles Garrett in this game?
Browns defensive end Myles Garrett is a force on the right side of the Browns defensive line. Garrett lines up almost exclusively at right end and will face Chiefs left tackle Eric Fisher.
Garrett has dominated in 2020, racking up 13 sacks and 4 forced fumbles. At 6’4″, 270 pounds, Garrett has great speed and athleticism for a man his size. He plays very well in all phases of the game and will have to play a huge role for the Browns in order to keep them in the ball game.
Fisher has had a good if not great season. While his starting mates have shifted in and out of the lineup all season, Fisher has been the lone anchor on the line. Fisher has not missed a meaningful snap since returning from an injury in mid-2019.
Who will John Dorsey be rooting for?
As the former general manager of both the Chiefs and Browns, John Dorsey’s fingerprints are all over this game. Dorsey drafted both Mahomes and Mayfield, acquired running back Kareem Hunt for both teams (drafting him in Kansas City in 2017, signing him as a free agent in Cleveland in 2019), and had a hand in the acquisition of a large fraction of players on both teams.
Dorsey’s current role as a consultant for the Eagles notwithstanding, the 60-year-old will certainly have an interest in Sunday’s game. We don’t think he’ll have much of a rooting interest for one side or the other, so we’re going to guess Dorsey is pulling for the underdog here.
