The words "travesty", "tragedy" and "lost season" have all been kicked around when talking about the Kansas City Chiefs this season. But after the loss of Jovan Belcher to a befuddling murder-suicide, the Chiefs gutted out an emotional 27-21 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. The win broke an eight-game losing streak and Kansas City will look to win two in a row for the first time this season at Cleveland Browns stadium.
Jamaal Charles has been the lone highlight for the Chiefs when he has gotten significant play, averaging five yards per carry and totaling over 1,200 yards from scrimmage. The Browns are simply average against the run, so a quick start from their star running back would do wonders for Kansas City's chances in this game. But with the No. 1 pick looming next year, how many games do the Chiefs want to win this season?
Cleveland's season has been marred by second-half collapses, so Sunday's 20-17 defeat over Oakland was a sight for sore eyes. The Browns won't contend this year, but Brandon Weeden will have another full offseason to prove that he should the quarterback of Cleveland's future.
