Cleveland Browns vs. Denver Broncos: Preview and Predictions

Aaron Nagler@Aaron_NaglerNFL National Lead WriterDecember 17, 2012

The Denver Broncos continue their march toward the playoffs, complete with a tough, opportunistic defense and a balanced offense. The Cleveland Browns, on the other hand, are playing out the string and most likely auditioning for a new regime. 

Now, this won't be a cakewalk by any means. Peyton Manning and company will find things much tougher against an underrated Browns defense. Look for the Broncos to keep trying to establish the run and for Manning to pick his spots deep, while the Browns try to play coverage and keep most everything in front of them. No, there won't be many surprises either way. 

In the video above, we look at some of the biggest matchups and storylines in the game, as well as give our predictions for the game. Let us know in the comments below who wins and why.
