The Broncos made it look easy for most of the day.
Largely, because it was.
The Broncos cruised to a 10th straight win, 34-12 over the Browns.
Quarterback Peyton Manning threw for 339 yards and three touchdowns, and their defense kept pressure on the Browns all afternoon, never letting the Browns have any semblance of a chance.
The Broncos even got victory cigar Brock Osweiler in the game late, letting Manning watch the end of their 12th win.
The Broncos are still in play for the top seed in the AFC playoffs, and can clinch a bye with a win next week at home against the Chiefs.
Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden left the game in the second half with an injured right shoulder, and didn’t return. If nothing else, he looked better by comparison, as backup Colt McCoy was all over the place, short-hopping and overthrowing passes with fairly.
The Browns fell to 5-10 with the loss, their fifth straight season of double-digit losses.
