What an entertaining game this was from start to finish. The Browns’ offense was superb through this game vs. the Chiefs, but they stuttered at the worst moment. A fumble by Nick Chubb let the Chiefs get close before a fumble by punter Jamie Gillan allowed the Chiefs to take the lead.

The Browns had a chance to win it at the end, but Mayfield floated a ball that was picked off to seal the game. The Browns continue a streak that has seen them not win in Week 1 since 2004 and not on the road in Week 1 since 1994.

Despite the loss, there are a lot of positives for the Browns. At times, they moved the ball at ease against the Chiefs, and bar a couple of errors, could have put this game away in the fourth quarter. They also played well on defense and caused issues for the Chiefs’ offense.

As for the Chiefs, they will be pleased to win, but there are some serious question marks. Their defense was bullied by the Browns’ offensive line, and the offense was contained for large parts of the game. Hopefully, this is a game we see repeated when the playoffs begin in January.
