The best drama in the NFL on Saturday night didn't take place in Lambeau Field. It surrounded Chip Kelly's future in the NFL.
That assumes the Browns even have a choice. Kelly is meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday. Mary Kay-Cabot of The Plain Dealer reports that Kelly's lunch session with the Eagles on Saturday has extended late into the night. Kelly and the Browns were scheduled to meet again over dinner with the potential of closing a deal.
As of Friday, sources with knowledge of the Browns' decision told Rapoport that Kelly was close to being their coach. At this moment, the team's brass is undecided if it prefers Kelly over Marrone.
The future of both organizations hangs in the balance. That's bigger than any playoff game.
