With their season on the line against the Browns on Saturday night, the Broncos opted to kick a field goal on fourth-and-1 inside the 10. After cutting the deficit to one, Denver never got a better chance to jump ahead of Cleveland, losing 17-16.

The Browns (6-7-1) are still alive in the playoff hunt, while the Broncos (6-8) were eliminated from contention.

Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield went 18 of 31 passing for 181 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Fellow rookie Nick Chubb provided 100 yards on the ground.

Case Keenum, meanwhile, threw two costly picks for the Broncos and was sacked on fourth-and-10 in the final minute, ending his team’s comeback bid.

Sporting News provided live updates throughout the game (all times Eastern). Here’s how the Browns won:
