On Thursday night, the Cleveland Browns hosted the Denver Broncos in a matchup of 3-3 teams hoping to avoid their fourth loss of the season.
Both teams entered the contest banged up. Cleveland was without starting quarterback Baker Mayfield and running backs Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. Meanwhile, Denver entered the game with starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater enduring an injury as well.
So far in the first half, it’s been all Cleveland as the Browns holds a 10-0 lead. In fact, the Browns have limited the Broncos to just two first downs through the first 30 minutes of the game.
It’s been a relatively boring game for football fans – at least those that aren’t rooting for the Browns. One of the most entertaining parts of tonight’s game has been the banter between Joe Buck and Troy Aikman in the booth.
Earlier in the first half, Buck threw a jab at legendary quarterback Peyton Manning.
“Did Joe Buck just throw shade at Peyton Manning with that coverage comment??” one fan noted.

“Growing p is realizing that Joe Buck and Troy Aikman aren’t actually that bad,” another fan tweeted.
