Broncos vs Browns: TV Schedule, Injury Report, And More


The Cleveland Browns won their first division game of the season last week. This week they face another tough test in the Denver Broncos. Denver is undefeated on the season with a 5-0 record. If late game heroics are required to win like in Week 5, will the same result occur for Cleveland?

There has been plenty of history (unfortunately negative for Cleveland) between the Denver Broncos and the Cleveland Browns. Though the different games in the past cost the Browns  success, the good thing is that those situations will not be affecting the outcome of today’s game.

Today is another opportunity for the Browns to start a new run of success against Denver. The Browns have momentum from last week but there are still plenty of issues for Cleveland that they need to work out.

Yes, the many injuries and their level of play on defense has not been good, but this is just the game that Denver can lose that they may not expect. How? Well their running game has not done anything all season. Through five games Denver has rushed for 358 yards, which averages out to 71.6 rushing yards per game. That is 30th in the league!

Watching QB Peyton Manning play up to this point you know something is just off with him. Since that is the case, if the Browns’ run defense can play up to their potential and keep Denver at their average on the ground, Cleveland can force Manning to beat them (I know it is crazy, but Manning has not played like we know he has and it is going to be a cold game, which is not his preference).

Doing that can allow Cleveland to possibly come out with a win today. That is key.

However, that is only one part of the equation. No, QB Josh McCown does not have to put up similar numbers as last week to win. All he needs to do is manage the game, get the ball to TE Gary Barnidge and success may follow.

Today the Browns may surprise Denver, but again due to the many issues the team has right now, this game also could get bad early. Hopefully Manning is not able to deal with the cold and the wind coming off of the lake and Cleveland can benefit from any mistakes he or the Broncos team may make.

After last week’s win against the Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland is now 2-3 on the season. They are three games back of the Cincinnati Bengals, who has a 5-0 record.

Injury Report:

The Browns have 17 players again on the injury report. Injuries to key players CB Joe Haden (concussion) and S Tashaun Gipson (ankle) have been most notable as they are out. The good thing on this report is RB Robert Turbin‘s status, which is questionable. He has been listed as out due to ankle injury since coming over from Seattle, so there’s some progress there.

Speaking of RBs, keep an eye on Isaiah Crowell, who’s listed on the report as questionable because of a toe injury.

For Denver’s injury report WR Demaryius Thomas (neck) and CB Aqib Talib (ankle) are listed as questionable. The full injury report can be viewed here.
