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.
