Result: Denver Broncos remain unbeaten with Cleveland Browns win

The Denver Broncos defeat the Cleveland Browns 26-23 in overtime to preserve their 100% record in the NFL this 2015 season thanks to a kick from Brandon McManus.

The Denver Broncos have maintained their unbeaten record by moving to 6-0 this season as a result of their 26-23 overtime win over the Cleveland Browns.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning continued his struggles at the start of the season as he threw an interception for the fifth game in a row when he was picked off by Karlos Dansby.

However, the AFC West side managed to take the lead when they converted a fourth down, and although they failed to score a touchdown, Brandon McManus sent a kick through the posts from 29 yards.

Denver extended their advantage as Browns quarterback Josh McCown tried to find his receiver down the sideline, but Aqib Talib intercepted the ball and returned it all the way for a 63-yard score.

The Broncos had the chance to put a further three points on the board just before the break, but McManus sent his kick from 51 yards wide of the posts.

In the second half, Cleveland managed to get on the scoreboard as McCown looped the ball into the endzone and Gary Barnidge hauled it in above Danny Trevathan for the touchdown.

The Broncos extended their lead to six points when McCown fumbled the ball following a sack from Shaquille Bennett. McManus kicked the field goal from 25 yards after Manning and his offense stalled in the redzone.

Cleveland responded to draw within two points as McCown and Barnidge connected for the second time in the game with a 14-yard strike.

Matters got even better for the hosts when Dansby picked off Manning again and returned the ball 35 yards for the touchdown to hand the Browns the lead.

However, the lead lasted just seconds as Manning came back with a 75-yard touchdown to Emmanuel Sanders down the sideline to put the Broncos back in front.

The Browns rallied again as McCown drove them into the redzone, but the Denver defense held them to a field goal as Travis Coons send his kick through the posts.

Cleveland spurned the chance to win the game when McCown threw his second interception of the game, but Manning came back with an error of his own in overtime as Barkevious Mingo made the pick.

However, the Browns could not capitalise and Manning seized his opportunity to drive the Broncos into field-goal range, and McManus kicked his side to victory to maintain their unbeaten record.
