DENVER — Baker Mayfield benefited from Denver's exhausted cornerback corps and questionable instructing choices in driving the Browns past the Broncos 17-16 on Saturday night, keeping alive their slim any expectations of closure the NFL's longest playoff dry spell. 

Mayfield's two-yard TD hurl to Antonio Calloway with just shy of 12 minutes left gave the winning edge to the Browns (6-7-1). They snapped an 11-amusement losing streak to the Broncos (6-8). 

Enhancing to 3-28 out and about throughout the last four seasons, the Browns still have a shot at their first winning season since 2007 and even their first playoff billet since 2002 on account of their first win over Denver since 1990. 

"I think the extreme condition, winning out and about's the most essential thing," Mayfield said. "If we don't do what needs to be done today around evening time — and clearly we need to proceed onward and put everything in order one week from now — none of that issues. 

"Along these lines, having the capacity to win out and about is something we must take pride in, going into another person's home, our down to the wire, it's simply us and turning out with success," Mayfield said. "Figure out how to win." 

Joined with their success at Cincinnati a month ago, the Browns have different street triumphs out of the blue since 2014. 

Calloway's touchdown made it 17-13 and accompanied security Justin Simmons in inclusion because the Broncos were down five cornerbacks. 

The Broncos reacted with a 13-play drive that gobbled up over seven minutes, however after Phillip Lindsay was full for no gain on third-and-1 from the Cleveland 6, mentor Vance Joseph sent in kicker Brandon McManus for a field objective as opposed to making it work. 

"I needed focuses there," Joseph clarified. "We had about 4:35 left. We had one timeout and the 2-minute cautioning. I confide with all due respect to get a stop there." 

It didn't occur, in any event not immediately. 

Scratch Chubb reeled off a 40-yard keep running on the first play, and on fourth-and-1 from the Denver 10, Cleveland between time mentor Gregg Williams pulled out all the stops — and Chubb was dropped for a 2-yard misfortune by Adam Gotsis. 

The Broncos took care of business the ball back at their 13 with 1:49 remaining and achieved the 50-yard line with 52 seconds left. Be that as it may, a spike, two inadequacies and a sack by Jabrill Peppers everything except finished Denver's playoff trusts. They could formally be wiped out with Sunday's slate of recreations. 

The Broncos started the night with cornerbacks Chris Harris Jr. What's more, Isaac Yiadom sidelined, and they lost Brendan Langley to a blackout in the first half and recently marked Jamar Taylor to a discharge in the second half on a similar play Bradley Roby went out with a gash in his mouth. Roby later returned. 

With security Dymonte Thomas, who had his first profession capture attempt in the leading half, subbing at cornerback, Von Miller broke Simon Fletcher's established record of 103½ sacks, including playoffs. 

Denver's drained barrier, be that as it may, was constrained ideal pull out onto the field when Case Keenum's first-down hurl was effortlessly picked off by T.J. Carrie at the Broncos 48, after only eight seconds had ticked off the amusement clock. 

Six plays later, Mayfield put the Browns ahead for good. 

The groups were tied at 10 after a misstep filled first half in which the two quarterbacks were impeded by capture attempts in or close to the end zone. 

Keenum, who was begged by his mentor amid the week to give it a chance to tear and stop stressing over being captured, was picked off out of the blue since October when Peppers caught his 29-yard floater to Courtland Sutton at last zone. 

Mayfield had the Browns in field objective range at the Denver 30 in the last moment before halftime when Thomas recorded his first vocation interference at the 2 on a toss to Jarvis Landry. 

Wounds 

Langley went out in the first half and Roby in the second. Joined with Taylor's discharge — he was marked after Harris cracked his right fibula two weeks back — and the Broncos were left scrambling in their optional.
