Gridiron Gab Week Two Preview: Kansas City at Cleveland

Kansas City Chiefs Vs Cleveland Browns

When: Sunday, September 19th

Where: Cleveland Browns Stadium

Weather: 62 with 40% Chance of Rain

Time: 1:00 P.M.

If there is such thing as a must win for a team in Week Two this is it with the schedule get brutal after Sunday the team can’t slip to 0-2. If the Browns can’t find away to get a victory in front of the home fans then Mangini will be on a very hot seat. The Chiefs are coming off an impressive win against the Chargers and can’t have a let down against the Browns.

What to look for:

Quarterback Position:

Nobody knows if it is going to be Delhomme or Wallace under center for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, in the home opener. The team needs a better performance then what they got in week one against Tampa Bay. Delhomme  is in a walking boot and hopefully will get an opportunity to redeem himself in front of the home fans.

Running the Football:

The team went away from running the football last week against the Bucs. Harrison only got the opportunity to run the football nine times and that isn’t a recipe for success for this team. Cleveland went away from Hillis after he fumbled the ball two times in crucial situations for the Brown and Orange.


The Browns only used the “Wildcat” three times in the season opener and I can’t figure out why. That formation was so successful last season and the brown and orange totally bailed on it against Tampa Bay. Cleveland needs to get back using this dangerous formation if they want to get back on the winning track.

Keys to the Game:

Stopping the Run

Establishing the Running Game and sticking with it

Pressuring Matt Cassel

Winning the Turnover Battle
