NFL Picks: CLEVELAND BROWNS at KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (12/27)

PRO FOOTBALL — December 27

CLEVELAND at KANSAS CITY
(America’s Bookie Line: Chiefs -11.5, Total 42) — Another chapter in the development of Johnny Manziel takes place here, but who would want to face Kansas City right now? The Chiefs have a +15 turnover ratio, and believe it or not, since their star running back Jamaal Charles went down with an injury, they have actually had more rushing yards in any team in the league. Both Manziel and Alex Smith get sacked a lot, but because Cleveland lacks a consistent ground attack, it hurts the Browns a lot more. Only one time in the last seven games as Cleveland allowed fewer than 30 points.
