Peyton Manning and the Broncos will take on the Cleveland Browns in their penultimate regular season game of 2012 on Sunday.
The Denver Broncos might have the easiest remaining schedule in the NFL, useful for a team that wants to stay as high as possible in the AFC playoff race. They'll still need to win the games if they want to keep themselves up, though, and they'll start on Sunday when they face the AFC North's worst team, the Cleveland Browns.
Denver handed a beatdown to the division-leading Baltimore Ravens last week, and will host a Cleveland team that has won just a single road game all season. Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden has struggled in his first season, with 14 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. He'll face one of his toughest tests of the year against the Broncos pass rush, which, led by Von Miller, has tortured quarterbacks all season long. The defensive unit has put up 42 sacks this season.
Behind center for the Broncos, Peyton Manning will try to continue his great season against a young and shuffling Browns secondary.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, Dec. 23, 2:05 p.m. MT
Location: Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver
