COMMENT

The Cleveland Browns overcame a handful of injuries on the offensive end to defeat the Denver Broncos at FirstEnergy Stadium. Third string running back D’Ernest Johnson exploded for 146 yards and a touchdown in the 17-14 home victory.

Cleveland offense was depleted by injury

The Browns were without their top two running backs, and starting quarter back, but still managed to top the Broncos. Johnson stepped in for Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt and Case Keenum took Baker Mayfield’s place under center for Cleveland.

Keenum led the Browns on a five play, 75 yard opening possession that was capped off by a Johnson four yard touchdown run.

Just two first downs for Denver in first half

The Broncos could not get anything going on the offensive end in the first half. They only had two first down in the first half, and went to half time down 10-0 after a Chase McLaughlin field goal late in the first quarter.

Teddy Bridgewater led the Broncos, who had lost their previous three games, on 13 play touchdown drive on the first possession of the third quarter, and things started to look up for Denver in the third quarter.

Keenum and Johnson step in for injured stars

Right after the Broncos scored, Cleveland responded with a long drive of their own. Keenum and Johnson marched the Browns down the field and punched back with a 13 play touchdown drive of their own.

The Broncos could only manage one more touchdown with five minutes to go in the game to cut the Cleveland lead to 17-14, but Bridgewater and the Broncos would not get the ball back.

Denver drops fourth straight

Johnson ran out the clock by getting first down after first down in route to his first 100 yard game in the NFL. Keenum passed for 199 yards and a touchdown in his first start since 2019.

Cleveland moves to 4-3 on the year with the win, while Denver moves to 3-4 on the season after their fourth straight loss in October.

OBJ looks like he's playing tonight after being listed as questionable.

The Brown are not trying to be out done, showing the drip of their own.

The Broncos coming in with that drip....

Who's ready for some football???

The Teddy Bridgewater era started perfectly, but it has hit a rough patch. Can they get back to their winning ways today??

The month of October has been rough for the Broncos. Games against the Ravens, Steelers and Raiders have humbled the Broncos after a sky high start.

The Broncos have lost their last three games after winning their opening three games.

Case Keenum will be under center for the Brown tonight, This will be Keenum's first start since 2019 when he was a starter with the Washington Redskins.

The Browns have been decimated by injuries over the last two weeks. NIck Chubb, Kareem Hunt, and Baker Mayfield are scratched from the lineup today.

Hello everyone and welcome to FirstEnergy Stadium! It's the Broncos and the Browns kicking off Week 7 in an AFC battle of 3-3 teams

The battered and bruised Cleveland Browns will host the slumping Denver Broncos to begin Week 7 of the NFL. AS English will be keeping you up to the minute with live, scores, stats, highlights and updates of tonights action from FirstEnergy Stadium.

The Cleveland Browns are coming off of loss at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals in which they were beaten down both on the scoreboard and physically. Nick Chubb was already out with a calf injury, but then Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham Jr. and Kareem Hunt all went to the sideline with injury. Hunt was the only one who wouldn’t return to the game.

Niether Hunt, nor Chubb will suit up for tonight’s game as both are nursing calf injuries. Mayfield said earlier in the week that he would be under center against the Browns after dislocating his shoulder for a second time this season against the Cardinals.

Despite Mayfield’s proclamations, the Browns announced it will be Case Keenum getting the start against Denver tonight. Beckham is listed as questionable with a bummed shoulder to add to insult to injury .

The Browns were Dark Horses in the AFC coming into the season with a beefed up run game, ODB healthy, and Mayfield with another year of experience, including a playoff win over Pittsburgh last year, but injuries could throw a speed bump into the Browns playoff plans.

Cleveland is the best rushing team in the league, averaging 168.5 yards a game. We will see if they can keep up their league leading form with out their two best running backs. With Keenum getting his first start of the season, he would love to see OBJ lined up out wide.

The Denver Broncos are desperate for a win after dropping their last three. It must be said, they had a cupcake of a schedule in the opening three weeks of the season. They took care of business as expected against the Giants, Jags, and Jets.

The Teddy Bridgewater era got off to a perfect start, but Denver got thrown into the meat grinder after Week 3, having to play the Ravens, Steelers and Raiders. Three straight losses dropped them to 3-3 on the year and leaving the Broncos chasing the Las Vegas and Los Angeles in the AFC West.
