Who’s Playing

Cleveland @ Kansas City

Last Season Records: Kansas City 14-2; Cleveland 11-5

What to Know

The Kansas City Chiefs and the Cleveland Browns will face off at 4:25 p.m. ET Sept. 12 at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium to kick off their 2021 seasons. Kansas City enjoyed a 14-2 record last season and almost won it all, losing the Super Bowl 31-9 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Likewise, Cleveland is coming off of an 11-5 season with hopes of advancing further than the second round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated by the Chiefs 22-17.

A pair of offensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Kansas City was the best in yards per game, finishing the 2020 season with 415.8 on average. Cleveland displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they ranked third in the NFL in rushing yards per game, closing the year with 148.4 on average.

Kansas City has the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.

 

How To Watch

Atlanta Falcons: TE Kyle Pitts

Published

Kyle Pitts became the highest-drafted tight end in NFL history when the Atlanta Falcons selected him with this year’s fourth overall pick. Pitts exploded Sunday with a nine-catch performance for 119 yards and the first touchdown of his career against the New York Jets.

“We all know what Kyle can do,” teammate Cordarrelle Patterson told reporters afterward. “[Head coach Arthur Smith] always says he expects stuff like that from Kyle, and we do, too. … He’s got every asset. He’s got good speed, hands, routes.”

The 21-year-old is a 6’6″, 246-pound target that moves as gracefully as a much-smaller wide receiver. Yet, his adjustments on the ball, coupled with his immense wingspan, are something to behold.

Julio Jones may no longer play for the Falcons, but Atlanta still has someone to serve as a standard-bearer at his position.

Arizona Cardinals: QB Kyler Murray

Published

Once upon a time, the Arizona Cardinals had a “difficult” decision to make.

General manager Steve Keim and new head coach Kliff Kingsbury owned the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft, with Kyler Murray sitting there as a perfect fit for Kingbury’s offense. Even though the team invested a top-10 pick in Josh Rosen the year prior, Arizona did the smart thing by selecting Murray.

Fast forward two years. Murray is now a leading MVP candidate, while Rosen is on his fifth team in four seasons.

Murray’s growth has been impressive. He currently leads the league with a 75.2 completion percentage and is the game’s best downfield passer. Plus, his mobility makes him nearly impossible to bottle up when everything breaks down.

In Year 3, the 24-year-old quarterback staked his claim among the NFL’s elite.

Every NFL Team’s Most Promising Youngster

Published

By

In the NFL, youth isn’t wasted on the young. Professional football is a young man’s game (unless you’re Tom Brady). In fact, every single franchise’s average age is 27 or younger, per Spotrac.

The days of loading up on veterans in an attempt for quick turnarounds or holding on to certain names well past their prime are long gone. Current rosters are often built around a few key veterans while collecting the bulk of the roster in their prime years, with young players serving as a crucial component to the salary cap because of their relatively cheap rookie deals.

Brady and Andrew Whitworth are anomalies. They skew the numbers away from the majority of NFL rosters.

Otherwise, every front office wants to build around a marquee talent entering his prime years. These individuals have yet to reach 25 years old and already showed promising signs with early production coupled with extensive growth potential.

These are the youth gone wild as the NFL never appeared too big for them.
