Your “Can They Possibly Do It Again?” AFC Divisional Round Playoff Game Open Thread

Twas a lovely feel good moment for a fan base that has been kicked in the nads so often for the last quarter century and beyond, really. And to do it against the team that has grinded their hopes down into an ashy paste under their jackboots won’t soon be forgotten. Are they emotionally spent though? For the non-answer to this and other questions, read below…

TO THE GAME!

Browns/Chiefs:

-Hey, good luck to HC Stefanski, coaching his very first playoff game. As far as harbingers of good fortune, I Preifer someone else.

-Chubb should be able to impose his will. He’s had 100 yards from scrimmage the last three games and scored in the last 6 of 7. And that KC run D is nothing to be afeared of.

-Tyreek is all set up to dominate-he has the most deep TD passes caught (8) this year and the Browns have given up the 3rd most (11) long scores. Though they do get back secondary starters in Ward and Johnson. Pro Bowler Bitonio is back to protect his Baker as well.

-Folks rightly point out that the Browns o-line is elite (although 4 dudes are questionable for this one) but t’udder side has allowed only 3 opposing rb’s to run for more than 65 yards this year. So maybe temper your expectations for CEH (also listed as questionable) or Bell or Williams or Thompson.

-“Just Win, Patty!” After a blowout of the Jetskis back in week 8, the Chiefs largest margin of victory was a 6 point trouncing of the Broncos.

-The Rich Get Richer: The Chiefs hit it big in the 4th round of the draft when they landed cb L’Jarius Sneed, who became an instant starter in the secondary and on special teams. Needless to say, when a scouting staff can find gems in later rounds a team’s overall depth improves dramatically.

-You’d think that the Browns would need a defensive turnover or two to keep pace with the opposition but it’s highly unlikely they’ll get the 4 picks that they generated last week-Mahomes has but 6 for the year.

-Sleeping With Bieniemy: The Chiefs OC has been pegged (damn!) by the Eagles as an HC candidate and/or a Rooney Rule checkmark.

Much more exciting 2nd half than first half.

TheRevanchist

Despite the dirty play by the Browns (can’t convince me otherwise), we destroyed the evil that came to play. Way to win, KC!

Don T

Ballsy win. Great watch.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

They should update this State Farm commercial so now they are shaving Patrick’s head for his brain surgery.

/I actually hope that Mahomes is okay, he doesn’t seem like a horrible person and I don’t want to wish for bad things to happen to him just because he wears a Chiefs jersey.

hippofant

When professional athletes insure their future earnings, do you think they do that through State Farm and such?

All I can say is that I hope Patrick Mahomes’ concussion is contagious.

Romo is so excitied because he doesn’t understand what playoff victory feels like.

Horatio Cornblower

Take comfort Browns; you may have ended Big Ben’s career.

Dunstan

Yeah, wouldn’t want to hire Eric Bienamy as your head coach….

Doktor Zymm

This game was way more bizarre than anticipated

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I wish someone had gone helmet-to-helmet on Tyreek while he was sitting on the ground there.

Also, fuck the Chiefs for not letting us see a last gasp Cleveland drive.

Don T

Chiefs took it. They earned the win. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I never said they didn’t earn it. Just that it wasn’t a fun way for the game to end.

Redshirt

I think we just heard Romo’s o-face.

hippofant

Chiefs Andy got Eagles Andy’s back for all the shit people talked about his playcalling.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

I just hate them SO MUCH.

Congrats Chiefs, but fuck you.

Mr. Ayo

Look at the balls on Reid!

litre_cola

I haven’t seen them in years – A. Reid.

Dunstan

Checkdown for the win!

Don T

Loved that fall

Don T

* call

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Boo.

Dunstan

So, for this NO-TB game, I was thinking of a drinking game. If I took a sip of water every time they remark about either QB’s age, how long before I die of hyponatremia?

Petronel

Better skip pregame then, or you may not make it to kickoff.

Gumbygirl

Before halftime.

Brocky

I have NEVER seen a more perfect use of this meme

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Wish we could have seen a Hennecopter there.

Horatio Cornblower

That”ll do Cleveland, that’ll do.

Doktor Zymm

What the Henne?

Gumbygirl

Head first Henne!

Don T

Henne creamed, ails Browns

Gumbygirl

Genny cream was the beer of choice at high school keggers. Seemed fancy compared to Rolling Rock or Vitamin I.

Brocky

so I’ve never seen that cedric ants bud light commercial. that was actually pretty funny

Horatio Cornblower

So 16 yards to Kelce over the middle, we’re all agreed, right?

Redshirt

If they go for the kill, yeah.

Horatio Cornblower

Or an aging backup QB could run for 13+ yards, I guess.

Doktor Zymm

Henne given Sunday

Gatoraids

A Henne for your starting quarterbacks thoughts

hippofant

Check out that super-cool stoic head nod from Henne.

Horatio Cornblower

The Browns thought that defensive scheme would fool Henne?
comment image

Gatoraids

Can tell that contract chippiness in Nantzs voice over that call there

Viva La Tabula Raza

Well, unless Henne throws another INT, I guess that’s it.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Correct call.

Horatio Cornblower

Just got back from walking the dog, and I see that if the NFL had decent officiating, we’d be tied.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Chiefs are Mahomes-less.

Horatio Cornblower

Just noticed that. I guess that big toe has progressed to gout.

Doktor Zymm

Wrong end, he got concussed

Don T

Screen pass pick six, per my Ouija board. Also, A 6 Goodbye

litre_cola

I need a Chefs field goal……

King Hippo

I just ML livebet #ThePauls. Chefs still cooked.

Dunstan

I don’t hate punting here, but Nantz is nuts to say there’s “no option” but to punt.

Viva La Tabula Raza

Browns engage dick-step!!

herodotus450

That’s what the Chiefs get for not drafting and developing Trubitsky as well as Mahomes smhd

clint greasewood

Live Vegas lines going crazy

Brocky

Bills fans RN

Don T

Yeah, who would’ve thought Chad Henne would throw an INT

Gatoraids

That pass is going to bring another little Rivers into the world

Viva La Tabula Raza

That’s why Chad Henne hasn’t started a game since 2014.

clint greasewood

Dolphins Legend

Gatoraids

Henne beats the Jets sing down here after the fateful duel between Henne and Sanchez

ArmedandHammered

He has nothing to smirk about now.
