Josh McCown, Browns Battle Legend Peyton Manning


CLEVELAND- This could be Peyton Manning’s last time playing against the Browns. Manning’s illustrious career will likely come to end after this season. He goes against a defense that is struggling mightily against the pass and run. This could be a career day for the legendary quarterback. The Denver Broncos are 5-0. Browns quarterback Josh McCown stands in the way of the Broncos path to an undefeated season.

The Browns defense will not likely have much success against Manning despite his inconstant performance this year. McCown will need another dominant passing performance as he looks to pass for over 300 yards for four straight games. McCown set the Browns franchise record with 457 yards against the Ravens last Sunday.

Clutch kicking may decide it

McCown and the rest of the offense decimated Baltimore last week. It could also be another big game for Travis Coons as he continues to make every field goal.

Browns receivers to watch

Tight end Gary Barnidge is McCown’s number one target. McCown may also look to test Denver’s defense by throwing deep to Travis Benjamin (411 receiving yards, 4 touchdowns) several times.

The offenses will dominate

This will be a game of lots of offense since the Browns defense is still a work in progress.  DeMarcus Ware is out for Denver with a back injury. The Broncos defense will not be able to handle McCown or the offensive line.

Browns injuries

Pro-Bowl cornerback  Joe Haden and free safety Tashaun Gipson will not play today.

Manziel off the field incident

Backup quarterback Johnny Manziel and his girlfriend were involved in a domestic incident. Reports suggest alcohol was involved.

Prediction: Browns upset Broncos 38-35 in overtime.
