CLEVELAND: New head coach Rob Chudzinski was the Browns' play-caller during their brief renaissance in 2007 and '08, and he and new offensive coordinator Norv Turner will bring a run-based offense that sets up the deep passing game. Trent Richardson is by far the best skill position player they have, and will obviously take a huge workload. It's a power running game that will pound it between the tackles. Richardson should be a three-down player, as the Browns have only fringe roster talent for the rest of their depth chart. This year's offense will take many more shots downfield. Brandon Weeden will work off a lot of play-action, and Turner's offenses typically look for the big-hitters up the seam. Josh Gordon should be an excellent fit for this game plan. Turner and Chudzinski both like to use the tight end frequently, and Jordan Cameron is enough of an athlete to be used in a variety of ways. Slot receiver Davone Bess is sort of a Plan B underneath if Cameron struggles. The Browns figure to remain very run-heavy near the goal line, mostly because of Richardson's ability to churn out tough yards. The Browns are desperate for a defensive playmaker, as they forced 0-to-1 turnovers 13 times last year. In comes new defensive coordinator Ray Horton, who has implemented an ultra-aggressive 3-4 defense that blitzes from all angles and relies heavily on speed. Rookie DE/LB Barkevious Mingo and free agents LB Paul Kruger (8.5 sacks) and DE Desmond Bryant (5-year, $34M deal) should help a mediocre defensive line that tallied only 15 sacks at home. ILB D'Qwell Jackson rarely misses a tackle opportunity, and CB Joe Haden and SS T.J. Ward comprise a great tandem in the secondary with Haden shutting down opposing No. 1 wideouts and Ward finishing off plays with bone-jarring hits.
KANSAS CITY: New head coach Andy Reid will bring his West Coast offense to K.C., but unlike in Philly, his personnel with the Chiefs will force a more run-heavy approach. Jamaal Charles will be the focal point of the offense, as the Chiefs will incorporate a lot of zone blocking and stretch plays outside the tackles. They'll also use a lot of shotgun and spread formations to create space for Charles. Reid rode LeSean McCoy hard in Philly, and Charles is looking at a similarly huge workload. Rookie Knile Davis is coming off a rough season at Arkansas, but could emerge as the thunder in the Chiefs' backfield. Reid and new offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, most recently his QB coach with the Eagles, will run a classic West Coast offense. Alex Smith will work off play-action a lot and they'll move the pocket around for him. Dwayne Bowe will spend most of his time at flanker as the No. 1 receiver in this offense, with Donnie Avery stretching the field as a split end. The Chiefs are built for a lot of two-tight end sets, with Anthony Fasano in-line and more likely to stay in and block, and rookie Travis Kelce as the pass-catching H-back. Reid has talked up Dexter McCluster, but he figures to be only a part-time weapon. In the red zone, Smith will likely be put on a lot of sprint-outs on what are run-pass options. No team forced fewer turnovers (13) than the Chiefs last year, who had just four takeaways over the final eight games. New defensive coordinator Bob Sutton will try to mix things up with his 3-4 base that provides multiple looks and will blitz more than last year. The Chiefs had only five sacks coming from their defensive line in 2012, but OLBs Justin Houston and Tamba Hali combined for 19 sacks. The team added free agent CBs Dunta Robinson and Sean Smith to give the front seven more time to apply the pressure.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PA SPORTSTICKER PRO FOOTBALL PREVIEW (CLEVELAND-KANSAS CITY) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(DELETES reference to Jacksonville being without starting QB in fourth graf)

*Browns-Chiefs Preview* =======================


While staying relatively healthy, the Kansas City Chiefs have gotten the benefit of facing some quarterbacks who were thrust into a starting role because of injuries.

On Sunday, the Chiefs will take on a team that's making a change at that position for a different reason.

Jason Campbell is taking over for the ineffective Brandon Weeden as the visiting Browns face the arduous task of trying to end Kansas City's reign as the NFL's only unbeaten team.

The Chiefs (7-0) have faced opponents with a combined 15-33 record and two were without their starting quarterbacks - Tennessee on Oct. 6 and Houston last week.

Along with starting rookie Case Keenum in place of Matt Schaub, the Texans also lost top running back Arian Foster and linebacker Brian Cushing to injuries as the Chiefs posted a 17-16 victory.

"The best thing about this team, we've had a lot of bad luck in the past; we're taking success the right way, being very humble about it," linebacker Derrick Johnson told the Chiefs' official website. "Character speaks after a win and we will still come back and grind like we're losing. We'll come back and try to get to 8-0. It's a great feeling. We're loving it."

The Chiefs, meanwhile, have only two rookies who are missing and both were likely to serve as backups, tight end Travis Kelce and safety Sanders Commings. That health has helped Kansas City get off to its best start since winning its first nine games in 2003.

"This is a rough business. Injuries do take place. I get it. But we've been fortunate," coach Andy Reid said. "That's really what it is."

The defense has played a significant role in the Chiefs' incredible turnaround from last year's franchise-worst 2-14 finish. Kansas City has given up a league-low 81 points and no more than 17 in any game.

The Chiefs are fifth in average yards given up (304.6) and third against the pass with 194.7 allowed per game. With a league-best 35 sacks, they're on pace to top the 1984 Chicago Bears' NFL record of 72.

That's helped them stay unbeaten with an offense that ranks in the middle of the pack with 24.1 points and 330.7 yards per game.

Kansas City's defense will try to keep rolling against a Browns team that's allowed its quarterbacks to get sacked 27 times, tied for second-most in the league.

Weeden was brought down 21 times in his five games this season. He endured three of those in last Sunday's 31-13 loss at Green Bay while completing just 17 of 42 passes (40.5 percent) for 149 yards.

That performance caused coach Rob Chudzinski to turn to Campbell, who has made 71 career starts and is the third starter this season for Cleveland (3-4) along with the injured Brian Hoyer.

"It's a tough decision," Chudzinski said. "I believe this is in the best interest of the team, and ultimately gives us the best chance to win. I'm excited to see what Jason will do with this opportunity."

Campbell made one start and played in six games for Chicago last season.

"It's an opportunity to go out there and just get back to the game and just having fun," Campbell said. "Obviously, we want to go win games and do the best we can. But at the same time we understand we're a growing football team and our goal and mission every week is to go out and win games."

Campbell helped lead Oakland to wins over Kansas City in 2010 and 2011. The Browns blew out the Chiefs 30-7 in the most recent matchup Dec. 9.

Kansas City's Jamaal Charles opened the scoring in that game with an 80-yard run and finished with 165 yards on 18 carries. He's third in the NFL this season with 561 rushing yards and is tied for second with six touchdowns on the ground.

Cleveland, which has won three of four in this series, is making its first visit to Kansas City since a 41-34 victory Dec. 20, 2009.
