Kansas City took care of business yet again last week–albeit narrowly–by holding off a valiant effort from new QB Case Keenum and the Houston Texans, 17-16 . What makes the Chiefs run even more impressive is the fact that they’re proving that rushing and controlling the ball still matters a lot, if not most, in the NFL.
While they rank near the bottom in passing at 26th with 210 yards per game, they’re 12th in rushing, led by the versatile Jamaal Charles, with 120 per game on the ground.
Ultimately, though, it’s their stifling defense that’s led the way, especially against the pass as they’re only yielding 194.7 a game through the air.
After another terrible outing last week against the Packers, the Browns have finally decided to give veteran Jason Campbell the nod at QB. At this point, it was basically the only route they could go. They need something on offense to get them rolling in the right direction, because defense certainly isn’t a huge issue. Cleveland is ninth against the run at just under 100 yards per game, and seventh against the pass at 219.
Prediction: Chiefs 31, Browns 17
