The stage is set for the Kansas City Chiefs and it’s time to Run It Back. The Run It Back tour is set to resume on Sunday at 2:05 p.m. The Chiefs will host the Cleveland Browns in the Divisional Round at Arrowhead Stadium. A victory would pit Kansas City against the winner of Buffalo and Baltimore.
Recent KC-Cleveland History
Kansas City and Cleveland have not played since Nov. 4, 2018, a Chiefs victory. Patrick Mahomes was in his first season as a starter, while Baker Mayfield was early in his rookie campaign. Mahomes tossed 3 TDs en route to a 37-21 victory in Cleveland. Mayfield finished with a pair of touchdown passes in the loss.
Collegiate Craziness: Mahomes vs. Mayfield
Mahomes and Mayfield also battled it out in one of the craziest offensive performances ever in college. Mayfield and Oklahoma bested Mahomes and Texas Tech, 66-59 on Oct. 22, 2016. Mahomes finished with 819 yards of total offense, including 734 passing yards while Mayfield tossed an OU record 7 touchdown passes.
Clearly, none of their previous matchups will mean much of anything come Sunday when the two teams meet at Arrowhead Stadium. Kansas City has its eyes set on repeating as world champions, while Cleveland will be looking to reach the AFC Championship for the first time since 1989.
How the Chiefs Move On
In order for Kansas City to keep the Run It Back tour moving into championship weekend, the team will likely need to avoid a slow start. Kansas City proved to be the comeback kings last season, erasing double-digit deficits in all three of their playoff wins, but the hope is to avoid a slow start against Cleveland.
“It makes it a lot easier,” Mahomes said in a press conference. “It’s not something that we necessarily talk about, I think it’s just kind of understood that we need to come out playing our best football. The team that we’re playing is coming in with a lot of confidence, playing really good football, so we want to do whatever we can to get off on the right foot and build a lead early.”
