07:43 PM ET 12.08 | The Chiefs and Browns may be at the bottom of the NFL, but both enter Week 14 off victories that snapped lengthy losing streaks. Kansas City, just one day after the murder-suicide tragedy involving Jovan Belcher, beat the Panthers for their first home win of the season. And the Browns held on to beat the Raiders and snap a 12-game road losing streak that dated back to Week 2 of the 2011 season. There are certainly plenty of storylines entering Sunday, as a slew of former Browns players and coaches will make the return trip to Cleveland Browns Stadium. Former head coach Romeo Crennel had an up-and-down tenure in Cleveland while offensive coordinator Brian Daboll was constantly under fire in that same role on Eric Mangini's staff. Peyton Hillis spent then entire 2011 season with the Browns embroiled in one controversy after another. And then there's former No. 1 pick Brady Quinn -- the Ohio native and one-time savior of the franchise who never made an impact as the team's starting quarterback. So while this game may not be a marquee matchup on the national stage, both sides will have plenty to play for on the shore of Lake Erie.

Other than the first pick, who cares about these teams?

If you're a Chiefs fan, you've got to wonder what the team was thinking, taking all those Cleveland castoffs.

A. Cleveland and KC fans care about these teams.

Q. If this is game is such a bore to you, why did you even take the time to comment?

Crennel was handed a bum team and as such he was doomed from the Jump.

Brady was never really given a 100% opportunity to succeed in Cleveland.

Hillis outperformed his contract and, get this, couldn't get paid in Cleveland of all place. Now you have them loser crying over spilled milk. Hillis has moved on.....Cleveland try it!

Daboll was under, well, Eric Wipe Mangini, that within itself spells doom. Mangini is a perrenal loser and wipe everywhere he goes, hell, he even looks and sounds like a moron on sportscenter!

I say this for these fellows, "they didn't accomplish much by transplanting themselves in KCville, another doomed destination....putzs!
