And all they get for their efforts is perhaps to play the best team with undoubtedly the best player on the planet.
Let’s take a look at the first game of the Sunday slate for the 2021 Divisional Playoffs in the NFL.
Who: Cleveland Browns (12-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (14-2)
Where: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri
When: Sunday, January 17, 2021, 1:05 p.m. Arizona Time
TV: CBS (Local Channel 5) - Jim Nantz (Play-by-Play) Tony Romo (Color Analyst) Tracy Wolfson (sideline reporters)
Odds: Chiefs -8
The Browns have been dynamic offensively, but their defense was great in the first quarter last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers. They'll need the same type of performance and Baker Mayfield to play his best to have a chance against the machine that is the Kansas City Chiefs.
Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense have been electric all year, I'm not sure I see that changing this week.
What about you?
Enjoy the game.
