The Denver Broncos and Cleveland Browns square off this Sunday at First Energy Stadium. This will be the newest edition of a historical rivalry between these two teams.
While the rivalry is not as intense as it used to be, they have played some solid games against one another. However, the series record favors the Denver Broncos as they have won 22 of the 27 games that these two teams have played each other.
In fact, the Broncos have not lost a game against the Browns since 1990. And even that game came down to the wire. A 30-29 defeat on Monday Night Football.
How will this new installment of this rivalry fair this week? It is safe to say that everyone will be watching.
It is going to be an early one for the Broncos, as the team kicks off in their first 1:00 PM EST game of the season. That means that the game will be an 11:00 AM MST game for the team. Hope the fans on the west coast and mountain area are ready for some early morning football.
Let us not waste anymore time. Let us take a look at five of the best Broncos games against the Browns.
#5- October 19th, 1975
Broncos 16 Browns 15
In just the fourth meeting between these two teams, the Browns and Broncos squared off at Mile High Stadium. It was a game of pure defense as only one touchdown was scored the entire 60 minutes of the game.
Both teams exchanged field goal after field goal. The score was tied up at six when the Browns pulled off nine unanswered points to take a 15-6 lead on the Broncos.
The Broncos were not going to be denied however, and scored the only touchdown on a one yard touchdown run by Jon Keyworth to cut the Browns lead to two.
The Broncos would complete the comeback when Jim Turner connects on a 53-yard field goal to give the Broncos the 16-15 victory.
