Cleveland Browns vs. Denver Broncos Recap
October 18, 2015
All the Denver Broncoâ€™s fans can say, is Peyton Manning did it again. In a throwback overtime atmosphere that certainly brought back visions of a ghost from the Denver vs. Cleveland past, the Broncos used another â€œdriveâ€ to send the upstart Browns to yet another heartbreaking loss in 2015.
Cleveland picked off Manning three times on the afternoon, making the sure-fire Hall of Famer look like an everyday run-of-the-mill professional quarterback. In fact, Cleveland had a chance to win the game late, but faltered on a drive that could have given the first shot at a game-winning field goal.
The Denver defense held, and extra time was put on the clock. Most any tried and true football fan knows that giving Peyton Manning more time on the clock is not a good idea. Manning did not disappoint the fans by avoiding mistakes like he never missed a beat, and leading Denver to another victory to remain undefeated.
Just as the Broncos have escaped 4 times already this season to steal victories, the Browns lost the 3rd try where they seemed to have a win within their grasps. Cleveland now sits at 2-4 on the year, but ironically this young team could have just as easily been 5-1, but for missed opportunities. Sunday at home against the Super Bowl contending Broncos, was yet another in these disappointing lost opportunities.

San Diego Chargers vs. Cleveland Browns Recap
October 4, 2015
Woe is the fortunes of the Cleveland Browns. Even after leading most of the ball game out in San Diego as the Brownies tried to even their 2015 record at 2 wins and 2 losses, in the end fate doomed the Browns again.
Cleveland quarterback Josh Brown played a superb game for 3Â½ quarters of football, throwing for over 350 yards and a pair of Browns scores. His counterpart Philip Rivers nearly matched completion for completion throwing for 2 more total yards in the game. But it was Riversâ€™ three TDâ€™s and late drive heroics that made the difference.
After a beautiful 10-play drive with minutes left in the 4th quarter, McCown was masterful leading the Browns to a late TD. With the game on the line, he found his wide receiver Taylor Gabriel for a game tying 2-point conversion. The Browns fans thought for sure they had earned a chance at overtime.
Rivers and the home field Chargers had other ideas. The San Diego offense navigated 57 yards in 8 perfectly time plays, to leave just enough ticks left on the clock for Josh Lambo to attempt a 39 yard field goal for victory. The kick missed, but as if the hand of fate was just waiting to hand Brownâ€™s fans disappointment again, the defense was called for off sides and Lambo would get a second chance. From 5 yards closer, his kick sailed through the uprights and San Diegoâ€™s record was even at 2-2 while Cleveland lost again to fall to 1-3.
