Keenum, 3rd-string back Johnson lead Browns past Broncos

CLEVELAND (AP) Baker Mayfield had the best seat in the house to watch the Browns' backups deliver.

Case Keenum stepped in for an injured Mayfield and made the most of his first start in two years, third-string back D'Ernest Johnson rushed for 146 yards and Cleveland overcame a short week and a long list of injuries to beat the Denver Broncos 17-14 on Thursday night.

Keenum didn't put up impressive stats (21 of 33 for 199 yards), but threw a touchdown pass and did enough - as did Cleveland's maligned defense - to get the Browns (4-3) a much-needed victory.
