Browns vs. Broncos: Cleveland's Biggest Winners and Losers from NFL Week 16

The Cleveland Browns couldn't stop Peyton Manning on the first series of the game as he led the Denver Broncos to a touchdown. The Browns offense then followed up with a long drive for field goal.

The rest of the game went the same way except that the Browns only scored one more field goal and one touchdown. The Broncos kept the scoring machine going and the Browns defense looking for the oxygen mask in the thin Denver air.

Peyton Manning went for the path of least resistance and threw the ball at any Browns defender not named Joe Haden. The game plan for the four-time MVP Manning worked to the tune of 34 points.

Early in the game, the Browns offense didn't have many opportunities as the Broncos went on time-consuming drives. When the Browns offense did have the ball, it didn't result in a lot of success. After the Broncos blew the game open, they came after Brandon Weeden.

On a sack by Von Miller, the Browns lost Brandon Weeden for the rest of the game. When Colt McCoy came in to finish the game he felt the pass rush as well. At the end of the game, Colt McCoy was sacked on a safety blitz and the defender rolled into Trent Richardson's leg. Richardson was able to make it to the sideline but had to be carted off to the locker room.

The good news is that the Browns' painful season comes to an end next week. Let's see who the winners and losers were in Denver.
