DENVER – The Denver Broncos season is on the line Saturday night as they host the Cleveland Browns in Week 15 of NFL play.

The Browns come in with nothing to lose carrying a 5-7 season record and third in the AFC North.

They’re looking to knock the Broncos out of any chance of reaching the playoffs as they carry a 6-7 record at third in the AFC West.

Denver will aim for a fast start, putting as many points on the board early as possible, something they’ve struggled with in the last 5 games.

If the Broncos win they’ll maintain a chance to enter the playoffs, but only if Tennessee, Miami and Indianapolis each lose a game in the final three weeks of the regular season.

If the Broncos lose, they’re guaranteed to miss the playoffs for the third year in a row.

Kickoff is 6:20 p.m. Saturday at Mile High Stadium.

The remaining two regular season games for the Broncos are on Monday, December 24th against the Raiders, then a return home to face the Chargers on Sunday, December 30th.
