The Browns lost at Denver Sunday 24-19 despite having an edge in all the statistics except one, points. Brandon Allen led the Broncos to the win making his first NFL start. Allen’s numbers weren’t overwhelming — 12 of 20 for 193 yards — but he added two touchdown passes and no interceptions.
The Browns missed out on many opportunities as Denver took a 17-12 halftime lead by holding Cleveland to four field goals after the Browns stalled at the Denver 21, 12, 9 and 13. Cleveland ran 30 more plays than Denver, 73-43, and had an offensive yardage and first down edge but yet couldn’t translate that into points, losing for the fourth straight time.
The Browns are back at home at 6-2 Buffalo next week.
