Cleveland Browns defensive back Joe Haden is preparing for a tough one-on-one match-up against Kansas City wide receiver Dwayne Bowe as he compares the talented offensive player to some of the greats in the league, according to Matt Florjancic of

Haden compared Bowe to Larry Fitzgerald because of his size, strength and "good hands."

Bowe had 57 receptions for 731 yards and three touchdowns this season for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Haden told Florjancic that his biggest concern with Bowe this week is his combination of strength and speed and he hopes to counteract that by playing as "tight as possible on him." Haden says he is more concerned with getting good positioning as opposed to Bowe's ability to get deep.

Haden has 34 tackles, three interceptions and one forced fumble for the Browns while being lined up against the likes of Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, Torrey Smith and A.J. Green this season.
