NFL Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs have won eight in a row and the Panthers aside, are the hottest team in the NFL right now and they can put huge pressure on the Broncos who play Cincinnati tomorrow, in the race for the AFC West division. That sequence of wins has come by an average of 17.5 points and includes wins over two of the Brown's divisional rivals who are both stronger defensively than Cleveland and to be honest, in all areas of the game. They also posted wins over two teams with 9+ victories to their name and all eight had a better win record than Cleveland. Therefore, it is very difficult to see beyond the home win and this is all about the handicap, as already discussed the Chiefs have been averaging a touchdown more and this is probably the easiest game on paper and one of the most important. Browns have lost their last five starts against teams with a winning record by 34-17-21-21-14 points and the Chiefs have the balanced offense to put up very similar numbers. The visitors are without key outside linebacker Armonty Bryant who did not travel after being arrested on Christmas morning , they have doubts also about offensive linemen Cameron Erving , Alex Mack , Joe Thomas , running back Duke Johnson and receiver Marlon Moore who are all questionable (50% chance of playing). Chiefs by two TD's +.
