Per 506sports.com, the areas in green on the map below will get to see the Browns vs. Chiefs game live on CBS at 1:00 PM EST:
- Former Browns LB James-Michael Johnson is the only former player on the Chiefs' 53-man roster, but he only has one tackle on the year and has been a special teamer. Geoff Schwartz, the older brother of Mitchell Schwartz, is a backup offensive lineman for Kansas City. DB Vernon Kearney, who was in camp with the Browns this year, is on the Chiefs' practice squad.
- Former Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress has the unique title of "spread game analyst/special projects coach" with the Chiefs. The Chiefs' offensive coordinator is Doug Pederson, who played quarterback for the Browns in 2000 and is one of the 20 guys on our infamous jersey list. Browns tight ends coach Jon Embree held that position with the Chiefs from 2006-2008.
- TE Jordan Cameron leads the Browns in receptions (45), receiving yards (515) and touchdowns (6). His reception total leads NFL tight ends, ranks fourth among AFC players and is fifth among
- TE Jordan Cameron is the only NFL player with a touchdown catch from three passers this season (QBs Brian Hoyer, Brandon Weeden and P Spencer Lanning on a fake field goal). That number will go up to four soon once Jason Campbell throws him a touchdown.
- Last year as member of 49ers, Chiefs QB Alex Smith completed 19-of-20 passes for 238 yards and 3 touchdowns against Ray Horton's defense in Arizona. The Cardinals sacked Smith four times last year.
- According to Bovada, the Browns have now dropped to 300/1 odds for Super Bowl. The Steelers are up to 66/1 odds despite having one less win. Cleveland's odds to win the AFC North are now down to 15/1. Bovada's over/under odds on Browns QB Jason Campbell vs. the Chiefs: 200.5 passing yards, 1.5 TD, 0.5 INT.
- The last time these two teams met in the regular season was on December 9, 2012 in Cleveland. The Browns actually blew out the Chiefs by a final score of 30-7. The Chiefs began the game with an 80-yard touchdown run by Jamaal Charles, but Cleveland got a 93-yard punt return from Travis Benjamin to take the lead 10-7 just before the half. Two Trent Richardson touchdowns and two Phil Dawson field goals finished the Chiefs off in the second half. That was a whole different coaching staff for the Chiefs, though, and Brady Quinn was the quarterback under center for Kansas City.
