Browns trail Broncos 14-3 at halftime

Doug Pensinger

The Broncos scored on their first drive of the day and haven't looked back.

The Cleveland Browns can spoil the Denver Broncos chances of catching the Houston Texans for the first overall seed in the AFC with a win in Mile High. So far, the Browns aren't spoiling much, trailing 14-3 at half time in Denver.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has been sharp all day, completing 19 of 27 pass attempts for 221 yards with two touchdown passes. But Manning threw a pick to Usama Young in the final seconds of the second half as Denver was driving for a touchdown. Demaryius Thomas leads all receivers on the day with five catches for 67 yards and a touchdown. Running back Knowshon Moreno tops the ball carriers with 38 yards on 11 touches.

Brandon Weeden is having a decent day behind his offensive line. He's completed 11 of 16 passes for 96 yards; most of those yards going to tight end Benjamin Watson who has three catches for 47 yards.

The Broncos have controlled the ball more in the first half with 16:46 in the time of possession column compared to 13:14 for the Browns.
