The Hard Facts
Hot News | Roster | Schedule | Depth Chart
In 2003, the Chiefs thrashed the Browns 41-20 in Arrowhead. With William Green, Ross Verba, and Barry Stokes out, the Browns offense struggled to keep up with Dick Vermeil's offensive powerhouse. While the Browns were able to keep Priest Holmes (92 yards, 2 TD) from embarrassing them on the ground, Chiefs QB Trent Green passed at will against the Browns. Green and the Chiefs amassed 348 yards through the air and reeled in three more touchdowns to Johnnie Morton, Tony Gonzalez, and Eddie Kennison. There were few bright spots for the Browns, but Andra Davis was undoubtedly the brightest: the Browns middle linebacker had four sacks in the losing effort.

Facing Defense a Chief Concern
With a new defensive coordinator in Gunther Cunningham, the Chiefs are bringing it from all over and stun-gunning opposing offenses.

Barry's Game Preview
Expect things to be a bit rougher for the good guys today. Our opponents aren't the Detroit Lions (5-11), but rather a team that started the 2003 season 9-0 before faltering, and a team that has legitimate Super Bowl hopes in 2004.
The Chiefs were a dangerous team last season on offense and on special teams, but had defensive challenges which eventually cost them a shot at winning it all. To address this, the Chiefs have brought back defensive guru Gunther Cunningham who, based on last week's 24-7 pounding of the Rams, is whipping the unit into shape.
Traditionally, you will see starting units for nearly three quarters during the third pre-season game, and head coach Butch Davis admits that the Browns will do some game-planning during these final two contests to get into a regular season mode.
In their favor as they take on a much tougher opponent, the Chiefs are going on a very short week and coming off a high-profile game. Kansas City has had only a couple of days of rest since beating their geographic rival St. Louis on Monday Night Football. Cunningham has revved up the Chiefs defense to go after the passer, but the run-happy Browns and mobile quarterback Jeff Garcia have a chance to take them by surprise after a short week.
Today's game will see opportunities for extended playing time for the first unit, and will be critical in Davis' evaluation of possible starters at running back, left guard, safety, and linebacker. Unfortunately, Chris Crocker (concussion) will not get a chance to play this evening, but keep an eye out for Michael Jameson getting time with the first unit as a sign that Davis might be considering him at safety. Jameson has had an excellent pre-season.
