Broncos 31 Browns 23

Even after a record-setting game against the downtrodden Ravens, the Browns offense will realize very quickly that the Broncos defense is one of the best in the NFL. The Browns will still put up some points and I don’t see this as a blowout, but Peyton Manning has some good weapons down field (if almost no running game), and the Cleveland defense has not shown me anything yet this year to prove that they can stop the opponent. The only way the Browns win games this year is via the shootout. Just not this week.

Broncos 24 Browns 21 – Browns fall to 1-2 at home, losing a heartbreaker late to the Broncos and Peyton Manning. No chance that McCown puts up the monster numbers he has the last two weeks vs the weak secondaries of the Chargers and Ravens, and the Broncos do just enough to get to 6-0.

Atlanta @ New Orleans – Atlanta
Washington @ New York Jets – New York Jets
Arizona @ Pittsburgh – Arizona

Houston @ Jacksonville – Houston
Miami @ Tennessee – Miami
Carolina @ Seattle – Seattle
San Diego @ Green Bay – Green Bay
Baltimore @ San Francisco – Baltimore
New England @ Indianapolis – New England
New York Giants @ Philadelphia – Philadelphia

Denver @ Cleveland – Broncos 27 Browns 10 – Denver’s offense may be struggling, including Peyton Manning, but the Broncos still have Manning not to mention an outstanding defense. The Browns need to get pressure on Manning and not let the Broncos run game wake up. This game could be over early if that doesn’t happen.

The punishing Broncos defense is too much for the Browns, as Peyton Manning leads Denver to a 20-10 win.

DENVER 21 Cleveland 20 – Browns will struggle vs Broncos stout D. Peyton Manning will make enough plays to escape with the win.

Broncos 34 Browns 24

It’s a clash between the NFL’s hottest offense and it’s best defense, and I’m going to give the edge to Denver’s pass rush in this one.
The Browns have found something for sure with Josh McCown and offensive coordinator John DeFilippo’s dink and dunk short routes, and I expect them to give the Broncos some grief during the game.

But something tells me Wade Phillips and company will figure it out and start spying those running backs, forcing McCown to go elsewhere in the air. It also doesn’t bode well for the Browns that their Achilles heel is giving up big plays, and Peyton Manning—along with Demaryius Thomas—will surely take advantage of any open field seen on Sunday.

MIN over KC
NYJ over WAS

CAR over SEA
GB over SD
SF over BAL
NE over IND
PHI over NYG

Browns 24 – Broncos 21

Call me crazy, but this game is going to be closer than what may have been perceived when the schedules were released. McCown will not throw for 457 again — if he can amass 250 with a TD or two I would call that a great game against arguably the toughest defense in the NFL. Sneaking Duke Johnson Jr. into the offensive game plan will be key for the Browns against an overly aggressive Wade Phillips defense. That is, if ole no. 43 doesn’t take his head off on a screen pass.

Broncos 35, Browns 10 – This is not a terrible 1-win Ravens team the Browns are going up against. The Broncos have the best defense in football and can move the ball at will. It could get ugly.

DEN 31 CLE 6

The Browns are about to make Peyton Manning look like he’s 29 not 39. The Browns defense has been abominable and now are likely without Joe Haden this week. The rest of the corners struggled to cover the two receivers left when they played the Chargers and Kamar Aiken got open a lot too this past week.

Denver’s top ranked defense isn’t going to do any favors for the Browns offense as it looks like it’s going to be a pass heavy week for both teams. Since McCown likes to hold onto the football I wouldn’t be surprised to see at least three sacks and three turnovers from either interceptions or strip sacks. I expect the Cleveland faithful to be calling for Manziel by the end of this one despite McCown setting franchise records last week. Just another day in the life of a Browns fan.

Do I think the Broncos are beatable? Yes. Do I think Peyton Manning is over the hill? Yes. Am I on board with the Josh McCown-led Browns offense? Yes. Am I confident enough to pick the Browns over the Broncos? Nope.
