Waiting For Next Year:
The Browns possess their first winning streak of the year heading into Sunday’s matchup vs. Kansas City. Cleveland has won two in a row, and four out of their last six.
The Brownies are 6.5 point favorites against the 2-12 Chiefs. The Chiefs have been the NFL’s worst team, but played their best game in a 27-21 win last week over Carolina.Several former Browns have prominent roles with the Chiefs these days. Quarterback Brady Quinn, running back Peyton Hillis, head coach Romeo Crennel, and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll all spent time in Cleveland.
Although the Browns have been winning of late, fans still crave an end to end decisive victory. With the Browns almost a touchdown favorite over Kansas City, hopes are high that this will be the week Cleveland gets the convincing win fans crave so badly.
In case you missed the Joe Thomas and Peyton Hillis catfight, relive it below in this week’s WFNY Brown’s coverage.
