CLEVELAND -- The Browns do not know how to make things easy.

For the second straight week, they entered the fourth quarter with the game under control. But Cleveland just gave up the big play.

Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler struck with a big 93-yard pass to receiver Eddie Royal to put Denver back in the game. Royal beat Browns cornerback Brandon McDonald deep. The Browns still hold a 23-20 lead early in the fourth quarter.

Last week Cleveland blew a 14-point lead in the second half to the Baltimore Ravens. Let's see if the Browns learned how to hold onto a lead in the final period.
