NFL Thursday Night Preview: Browns Vs. BroncosPublished October 21, 2021 by Sol FH
Week 7 kicks off with a big game between the Cleveland Browns vs. Denver Broncos, live at 1:20 GMT.
The Cleveland Browns will host the Denver Broncos to start Week 7 of the NFL regular season and they will be looking to break a two-game losing streak.
The Browns, now 3-3 are coming off a difficult loss to the Arizona Cardinals where they couldn't do much of anything on offense, nor defense.
The Broncos started the season on strong going 3-3, but, they were facing teams like the Jaguars, Jets, or the Giants. Since facing their real first struggle, against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4, they lost horribly and haven't stopped losing since. They are now on a three-game losing streak including a loss to the Las Vegas Raiders 34-24 last week, wherein Teddy Bridgewater threw for 3TDs and 3 interceptions.
The Browns are down with injuries including its starting running backs, most likely both starting offensive tackles, their defense is in shambles, quarterback Baker Mayfield's left arm is hurt and he is out for the first time after starting 53 games in a row.
The Broncos will start Case Keenum at quarterback as Teddy Bridgewater is out with a foot/quad injury, tackle Garett Bolles is questionable with a knee injury, and safety Caden Sterns is questionable due to illness. The Broncos will be without linebacker Baron Browning (concussion) and outside linebacker Aaron Patrick (ankle).
The Denver Broncos lead the all-time series with the Browns, 21-6. Cleveland has only beaten the Broncos at home twice in franchise history, with the last win coming in 1989.
