2012 NFL schedule: Browns make trip to visit Broncos in Week 16

Cleveland will head west looking to get back into the win column after last week's loss to the Washington Redskins.

It's still unknown if Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur will be back with the team for 2013 and beyond, but he and his team could help make a good case with a road victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday. That would be just about a Herculean task, of course, as Denver enters the game on a nine-game winning streak that last saw them lose a game in the first week of October.

The Broncos long ago wrapped up the AFC West, but they're still battling the Houston Texans and New England Patriots for position at the top of the AFC playoff standings. The Broncos currently hold the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye, and they'll undoubtedly be motivated to keep -- or improve -- that position. Sunday's game kicks at 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS.

Elsewhere around the AFC North, the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Cincinnati Bengals in a game that could very well decide who sneaks into the AFC playoffs as the conference's last seed. That title is currently held by the 8-6 Bengals, but the 7-7 Steelers can make a move with a win on Sunday. That game is a 1 p.m. kick off on CBS.

Meanwhile, the Baltimore Ravens will host the New York Giants. The Ravens have already clinched the division title, but things are getting tense in Baltimore after three straight losses. That game kicks at 4:25 p.m. on FOX.
