We are a week away from the Cleveland Browns battling the Kansas City Chiefs to open this new NFL Season. After these two teams played a classic AFC Divisional Playoff Game back in January, where the Chiefs hung on to beat the Browns, this opening game of the season should be a dandy.
The view by many that follow the NFL believe that the Browns and Chiefs are now two of the best teams in the league. Unlike a couple of seasons ago when the Browns were coming off of a decent season and then faltered under the direction of then-coach Freddie Kitchens, this year’s Browns are returning successful coach Kevin Stefanski for his follow-up season after the Browns went 11-5 last season.
The Chiefs have continued their domination of the AFC and are the favorites to continue their string of success. But the Browns are coming and the Chiefs know it.
With this upcoming game, the Browns have an opportunity and I fully expect them to take advantage of it and win their first opening game since 2004. What better way to remind the world that the Browns are contenders for that elusive Super Bowl.
Here are a few reasons why the Browns have an excellent chance at victory next Sunday.
