Game preview

The Browns' win over the Steelers marked their first playoff victory since the 1994 season.

Cleveland's prize? A trip to face the defending Super Bowl Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium with a spot in the AFC Championship Game on the line.

In Kansas City, the Browns will face the NFL's top passing attack, headlined by 2018 NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes and a pair of 1,000-yard, double-digit touchdown receivers in Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Fortunately for Cleveland, its secondary should receive a sizable boost in the form of the returns of cornerbacks Denzel Ward and Kevin Johnson, who missed last week's win in Pittsburgh while on the NFL's COVID-19 reserve list.

But for as much attention as Kansas City's passing game deservedly gets, it's worth noting that the Chiefs have struggled against the run this season. In other words, if Cleveland is going to advance to its first conference title game since the 1989 season, expect it to be on the backs of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt.
