Ronnie Harrison, one of the stars of the Cleveland Browns defense, got himself ejected for shoving a coach on the Chiefs sideline
There was a lot of excitement on the Cleveland Browns opening drive, since they went up 8-0 after a Nick Chubb touchdown — which was followed by a two-point conversion from Kareem Hunt.
It was a 75-yard drive that included two gutsy calls from head coach Kevin Stefanski. Not only did he go for two after a K.C. penalty, but he also went for it on fourth down to set up the first score.
However, things were not as good on defense. It was bad enough that the Chiefs offense moved down the field but safety Ronnie Harrison also got himself ejected for getting into a physical altercation on the sideline with a Kansas City coach.
Cleveland also had an offsides call on Myles Garrett, which negated a great pass break up from M.J. Stewart — who nearly had a pick. Kansas City nearly made the conversion on the next play but the good news is, the defense held the Chiefs to three.
Safeties in shirt supply after Ronnie Harrison ejection
Even before the Browns lost Harrison, they were already thin at safety.
Grant Delpit, who tore his Achilles last year, has yet to make his debut. That means with Harrison going out, they’re down to John Johnson III and M.J. Stewart, who normally plays cornerback.
Still, the Browns lead 8-3 after each team touched the ball once, which is a win for them as they look to enact some revenge for the loss in the playoffs a season ago.
