Broncos imperfect yet still perfect
CLEVELAND — Again far from perfect, Peyton Manning still kept Denver's record pristine.
Manning shook off three interceptions, one early in overtime, and drove the unbeaten Broncos in range for Brandon McManus' winning 34-yard field goal against the Browns on Sunday.
"We're not playing as well as we would like, but we're playing well enough to win," Manning said. "We're doing some things right at critical times whether it's the last drive of the game or in overtime."
Denver's defense won the day. After Manning's third pick, Denver had a tackle for loss then sacked Josh McCown twice to push the Browns out of field-goal range.
McCown's second interception, with 44 seconds left in regulation, came as the Browns were driving for a potential winning field goal.
