The Cleveland Browns will get a shot at revenge against the Kansas City Chiefs on the opening weekend of the NFL season and wide receiver Rashard Higgins can’t wait.
The Browns lost to the Chiefs in the AFC Divisional round last year and a controversial fumble from Higgins at the goal line turned the tide of the matchup. Higgins is hungry for redemption, which he demonstrated in an Instagram post following Wednesday’s schedule release.
“Week 1. Still ain’t forgot,” Higgins wrote.
Controversial ‘Dirty Dan’ Hit Still Stings for Browns
The hit that caused Higgins’ fumble was from Chiefs safety Dan Sorensen. The defender — known affectionately as “Dirty Dan” — put his head down and hit Higgins directly in the side of the helmet with the crown of his own. The refs did not throw a flag and the ball rolled out of the end zone, resulting in a touchback.
