Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns Predictions & Tips


Denver and Cleveland are tipped to produce a low-scoring matchup.

Cleveland are ravaged by injuries and the Broncos are one of the lowest scoring teams in the league.

The Browns defense can get back on track and the offense should do enough to get the job done.

  • Cleveland Browns are second in the NFL in total defense
  • Denver Broncos are on a 3-game losing run
  • Denver Broncos rank fourth in the NFL in points allowed per game (18.3)
  • The Under has hit in 4 of Denver’s 6 games so far

Head To Head


  • Denver Broncos lead the all-time series 24-6
  • Denver Broncos won 21-19 the last time they met in 2019

Denver Broncos Form


Denver head to Cleveland with a 3-3 record after losing each of their last three games.

The Broncos opened up the season with back-to-back road wins against the New York Giants (27-13) and Jacksonville Jaguars (23-13).

They followed that up with a 26-0 shutout of the New York Jets in their home opener.

Their perfect start was halted by a 23-7 defeat to Baltimore and that proved to be the start of a losing skid that has now hit three games.

The Broncos lost 27-19 to AFC North rivals Pittsburgh before falling 34-24 to Las Vegas last weekend.

QB Teddy Bridgewater is 139/198 for 1,514 yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions.

WR Courtland Sutton has been his favorite target, hauling in 33 of his 53 targets for 471 yards and two TDs. Noah Fant and Tim Patrick both have three receiving scores.

Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams have been sharing the load in the backfield, combining for 841 yards from scrimmage and three TDs.

Defensively they rank in the top five for total defense and average points allowed per game.

Cleveland Browns Form


Cleveland are looking to steady the ship after back-to-back defeats put them back at .500.

The Browns made a couple of late mistakes to gift Kansas City a 33-29 victory on opening day.

They rebounded though with a 31-21 win over Houston before dominating Chicago in a 26-6 win.

Cleveland took their win streak to three games with a 14-7 victory over Minnesota, but they have not won since.

They lost a 47-42 shootout to the Los Angeles Chargers and were then beaten 37-14 by Arizona.

QB Baker Mayfield has gone 116/173 for six touchdowns, three interceptions and four fumbles.

RBs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt are keys to this offense, combining for 1,080 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns. Hunt is out here though and Chubb is carrying an injury.

TE David Njoku leads the team in receiving with 266 yards and a TD. Odell Beckham Jr has 203 yards off 14 catches.

Despite giving up a bunch of points in recent weeks, this remains one of the best defenses in the entire league when healthy.

Verdict

Cleveland’s offense has been hit with injuries and Denver’s offense is not the most potent. This has ‘low-scoring game’ written all over it.

The Browns do have a little more firepower though, as well as a defense due a bounce-back game, so the hosts are tipped to win.
