BY foxsports • October 24, 2013

* The Browns lost, 31-13, to the Packers at Lambeau Field last Sunday, and have now dropped two straight games, allowing 31 points in each setback. The last time Cleveland allowed 31 or more points in three consecutive contests was Weeks 12-14 in 2004.

* Kansas City defeated Houston, 17-16, at home in Week 7, and is now 7-0 for the second time in franchise history (started 9-0 in 2003). The Chiefs haven't allowed more than 17 points in any game this year -- the longest such single-season streak in franchise annals.

* The Browns beat the Chiefs, 30-7, at home in Week 14 last season, and have won three of their last four meetings with Kansas City overall. The last time these clubs met at Arrowhead Stadium (December 20, 2009), Cleveland took home a 41-34 victory behind a franchise-record 286 rushing yards by Jerome Harrison.

* Brandon Weeden was just 17-of-42 (40.5 percent) for 149 yards and a touchdown (1 INT) last Sunday, and is now 0-4 as the Browns' starting quarterback this season. Jason Campbell has yet to make a start for Cleveland, but with a 2-1 mark in three career starts against the Chiefs, will get the nod on Sunday.

* Alex Smith improved to an NFL-best 26-5-1 as a starter since the beginning of 2011 with his win in Week 7. Smith, who has gone three straight games without a touchdown pass, won his only career start against the Browns on October 30, 2011.

* Kansas City has outscored its opponents by 12.5 points per game this season -- second best in the NFL (Denver -- 14.5). The Chiefs were outscored by an average of 13.4 points per game in 2012 (worst in franchise history).
