Filling in for injured running backs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, D’Ernest Johnson ran for 146 yards and a touchdown in his first ever NFL start to lead the Browns to a 17-14 win over the Broncos in Cleveland on Thursday night football.
Case Keenum also stepped in for injured quarterback Baker Mayfield and had a solid night, throwing for 199 yards, 1 touchdown and no interceptions.
The Browns defense held the Broncos to only 223 total yards and won the turnover battle 1-0. With the victory, the Browns snap a 2-game skid and improve to (4-3) on the season. Next up for Cleveland, a home game against the Steelers on Halloween day!
