Patrick Mahomes has been one of the best players in the NFL for the past few years. The 2018 NFL MVP had an excellent season, as he led the Kansas City Chiefs to a near-perfect 14-1 record, the best in the league.
And this Sunday, the Chiefs, with Mahomes in the pocket, look to go one step further back to the Super Bowl by defeating the Cleveland Browns.
However, the Browns will not make it easy. This is the first Browns playoff run since 2002. And they shockingly upset the Pittsburgh Steelers to continue their run so far.
The Browns will be entering the game with a lot of confidence, thinking that they can slay another NFL giant in this miracle run so far.
Cleveland Browns’ Myles Garrett gave an interview prior to the game. He spoke on a number of subjects before the game. On facing Patrick Mahomes in the Playoffs, Garrett wants to leave an impression on Mahomes.
He wants Mahomes to remember facing him but noted that the matchup isn’t focused on the two of them. He said, “I want him to be able to go home when he has his kid or kids and tell them that he went against Myles Garrett.
“It is not just me versus him – it is the Browns versus the Chiefs – but individually, I like to leave an impression on everybody I go against.”
Garrett noted that he needs to step up in a big game, and the game against the Chiefs offers him the best opportunity to do that. For Garrett, the Chiefs are the best team in the league.
“Absolutely. This should be the game to do it. One of the best teams in the league, if not the best team in the league, but they have to go in there and they have to prove it, and we have to prove that we can battle with anybody.”
However, while Garrett wants to go up and challenge Mahomes, he did acknowledge how good he is. He shared how much respect he has for Mahomes and the talent he has. However, he did take note of how he thinks Mahomes can be stopped on the football field.
“The guy is great with his feet and he is great throwing off of the run. He can make plays in any part of the field so we have to be prepared for that.
“Do not jump for those ball fakes. If you take your shot at him, make it clean and try to take the ball away from him.”
Can the Cleveland Browns defeat the Kansas City Chiefs? This is a true David and Goliath game, and the Browns have shown that they are capable of causing massive upsets in the Playoffs. But the Chiefs could prove to be too much for the Browns.
