Browns 5 Most All-Time Memorable Wins Against the Broncos

Cleveland Browns v Denver Broncos

3. Browns 30, Broncos 29, Oct. 8, 1990 at Denver

Jerry Kauric, in his lone NFL season, kicked a 30-yard field goal on the final play for the Cleveland win.

The Browns drove 48 yards before Kauric’s kick, keyed by Bernie Kosar’s 20-yard completion to Reggie Langhorne on a fourth-and-eight play. The Browns had cut the Denver lead to 29-27 when Kosar threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Brian Brennan with 3:21 to play.

Kosar completed 24 of 38 passes for 318 yards and two interceptions. He connected with Webster Slaughter and running back Kevin Mack for touchdown throws of 43 and 11 yards, respectively. Slaughter totaled 123 yards on seven receptions, and Brennan caught five passes for 65 yards.

The outcome made both teams 2-3 on their ways to surprisingly bad campaigns. The Browns lost their next two games to become 2-7, and fired coach Bud Carson. They lost 6 of 7 games with offensive coordinator Jim Shofner serving as head coach. The 3-13 record was the Browns’ worst in what was then their 45 years as a team.

Denver, which had defeated the Browns in the previous season’s AFC title game before a Super Bowl loss to San Francisco, went on to a 5-11 record.
