What a game last night was ! The Cleveland Browns played tough against the Kansas Chiefs but they were unable to bring it on home even with the Chiefs quarterback out on concussion protocol mid game.
The Cleveland Browns have always been the underdogs. Always one of those teams that could never get it quite right. Well , that is until the entire team moved to Baltimore in 1995. Anybody remember that ?
The owner of the Cleveland Browns, Art Modell moved the entire roster of the Cleveland Browns to Baltimore to make the team of the Baltimore Ravens. Yes that is how the Baltimore Ravens started up their team ( from the entire Browns Roster ) and that year that Art Modell made that move his new team the Baltimore Ravens won the championship.
So how is it that when that same team played in Cleveland Ohio they couldn’t get to the playoffs but they make the move to Baltimore and become the Ravens that win a championship? Simply because of the Cleveland curse.
Everyone knows the curse. LeBron made history as he lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first championship in 2016 ending that 52 year curse of never ending loses. Let’s face it , if Lebron wasn’t part of that team in 2016 the CAVS never would have gotten in the playoffs. Every time Lebron sat out a game the CAVS would lose. Lebron earned that billboard !
Getting back to the Cleveland Browns , let’s just say they had a phenomenal year. They played better then most teams in the NFL this season and even knocked the Pittsburg Steelers out in the playoffs which stunned me. I guess it didn’t help when Ben Rothlisberger threw 4 interceptions that game. There are rumors that Ben is planning another year with the Steelers to give it one more run. Ben is a great quarterback but his last game against the Cleveland Browns would certainly have you wondering if his glory days are over.
Last night was the first night I actually watched a full game of the Chiefs. I never been a fan of them but their quarterback caught my attention. Patrick Mahomes is 25 years old and has already lead the Kansas Chiefs to a championship last season. This season it doesn’t look like he is slowing things down either. That entire team looks ready to win again this season. Their offense and defense is good , the quarterback is good , the kicker is solid. However , Mahomes suffered a concussion last night as the backup quarterback took over . The backup quarterbacks name is Chad Henne.
Usually the backup quarterbacks are not even near as good as the primary quarterback. However , Henne proved himself last night. His throws were just right as he continued to get his wide receiver and running back in just the right positions to end the night with a solid win.
After the Cleveland Browns lost to the Kansas Chiefs I watched Tom Brady who is now the quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Say what you want about Brady but the guy is the LeBron of football. He can scan the field in half a second and throw it to one of his guys. I don’t even know if he has to blink he throws it so fast. The Buccaneers defeated the New Orlean Saints last night. The Saints quarterback Drew Breeze might be leaving the NFL. There are rumors that last night would be his last game . Drew Breeze has won one championship with the Saints in his career. He is 42 years old and will end up in the hall of fame as one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. However , when you compare his stats to Tom Brady who has 6 championships under his belt , and is 43 years old but still playing like he is 25 years old it’s crazy to think what an amazing career Brady has had. Brady looks like he is right on track to winning his 7th championship.
You can catch Tom Brady next Sunday as the Buccaneers take on Greenbay Packers at 3 pm eastern time on Fox and you can catch Kansas City Chiefs take on the Buffalo Bills next Sunday at 6:40 pm eastern time on CBS.
