The Cleveland Browns take on the Denver Broncos in Week 9 desperately searching for a win to mask the stink emanating out of the practice facility in Berea.
The franchise quarterback is storming off from interviews, the coach has at times been despondent and the offensive coordinator can’t really explain how the Browns opened up with three passes in soggy New England last week.
Despite being 2-6, the Browns can still make some magic, that is if they start playing good football. This is a team that’s played one really great game in 2019, the victory on the road against the Ravens.
That’s why, while the math may be there for the Browns to make a run, you’ve got to wonder if they’re actually capable of getting the job done.

The Browns are off to Denver this weekend to take on the Broncos. Denver is off to a 2-6 start but they’ve played a number of close games. The Browns are trying to begin their turnaround from a 2-5 start.
The Cleveland Browns are desperate for a win and will face the Denver Broncos in Week 9. These three matchups could be what ultimately decide the game.
We’re entering the Cleveland Browns eighth game of the season as they travel to the Mile-High City to take on the Denver Broncos. Neither team enters this game with a good record as the 2-5 Browns are trying to score a road win over the 2-6 Broncos.
In this game, the Browns will be facing a bit of an unknown under center as Brandon Allen will make his first start as a professional. A former Arkansas Razorback, Allen was picked in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
He spent just one season with them before heading to the Los Angeles Rams the past two years before signing in Denver this past offseason. This will be his first NFL action as he replaces an injured Joe Flacco while also presumably holding a spot for rookie Drew Lock who is currently on IR but can return later this season.
The matchup between Allen and the Cleveland defense will be huge but it’s not the only one that will be key. Here we look at the three key matchups between the Browns and Broncos which could ultimately decide the game. But first, we look at the team that has been the biggest enemy to Cleveland so far in 2019 — themselves.
Notable omission: Browns vs. Browns
So far this season, the Browns have been their own worst enemy. From questionable play calls to horrible penalties, they’ve spent more time trying to overcome self-inflicted harm than anything else this year. In Week 9, they have to find a way to keep from doing this.
he Joe Flacco experiment might be already over in Denver. Brandon Allen will make his debut at quarterback on Sunday for the Broncos, filling in for the injured Flacco, who was placed on injured reserve early this week with a bulging disc in his neck.
Cleveland (2-5) opened as a one-point underdog earlier this week before news of the Flacco injury became public. Since it was announced that Brandon Allen would be the starter, the line has moved steadily in the Browns’ direction, with most books in Las Vegas offering Cleveland as four-point favorites, according to VegasInsider.com.
Denver (2-6) must not only replace Flacco but also wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who was traded to the San Francisco 49ers before the deadline. The complete overhaul to the Broncos offense has forced the betting public to fade the home team in this spot with 81-percent of the bets and 84-percent of the money coming in on Cleveland, according to The Action Network.
After Joe Flacco was placed on injured reserve Friday, that was the message as Brandon Allen prepares to start his first regular-season NFL game.
Allen, who completed nearly 64 percent of his passes during the preseason with the Rams, joined the Broncos ahead of Week 1 and has served as the team’s backup each week. This week, though, as he becomes the team’s starting quarterback, the demands are far different.
