Browns beat Broncos for first time since 1990

DENVER– The Cleveland Browns beat the Denver Broncos, 17-16, Saturday. That keeps the Browns slim playoffs hopes alive.

It’s the first time Cleveland has defeated Denver since 1990.

Baker Mayfield threw a 31-yard pass to Breshad Perriman on 3rd and 9 for a touchdown on the Browns first possession of the game.

Later in the first, the Broncos’ 13-play drive ended in a TD and on their following possession, they got a field goal to make the score 10-7. Greg Joseph hit a 40-yard field goal to even up the game again.

The Browns offense was unable to capitalize on a Jabrill Peppers interception later in the second quarter and Baker threw a pick of his own before the end of the half.

Penalty markers were all over the place in the third quarter. A Mayfield fumble was recovered by Denver and resulted in a field goal to make the score 13-10.

An interception by TJ Carrie set up the drive that resulted in a touchdown pass to Antonio Callaway to give the Browns the lead.

The next time the Browns had the ball, rookie running back Nick Chubb had a 40-yard gain. Cleveland got to Denver’s 10-yard line, and went for it on fourth and 1, but came up short with less than 2 minutes of play, leaving the score at 17-16 Browns.
