It’s hard to know exactly how the Browns are benefiting from starting Jason Campbell this week.
But it’s clear to see the Chiefs are hitting another team at just the right time.
According to Adam Teicher of ESPN.com, Campbell will be the third replacement quarterback they’ve faced in the last four weeks. They previously beat the Ryan Fitzpatrick-led Titans and Case Keenum and the Texans in their first starts with those teams.
Campbell’s played in the league (Keenum took his first NFL snap against them last week), but he’s still in a tough spot. The Chiefs lead the league with 35 sacks.
The Chiefs also get to play Thad Lewis and the Bills next week, before finishing the year against real, live quarterbacks. Barring injury, they play Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers twice each down the stretch, along with Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Terrelle Pryor (although one of those things is not like the others).
