The Cleveland Browns and the Denver Broncos will kick off Week 7 of the NFL season with an exciting game on Thursday Night Football.

Both teams have suffered in recent weeks after strong starts to their seasons. The Browns are dealing with a number of injuries to some important players, none more important than Baker Mayfield's non-throwing shoulder injury, and they have lost two straight games without much to show for. While the Broncos don't have as many injury problems as their opponents, Teddy Bridgewater is reportedly nursing an injury and is questionable to play in Week 7.

The Browns started their season 3-1 but are .500 now and out of the playoff picture right now. The Broncos started confidently with a 3-0 record but then lost the next three games. This is a crucial contest for both teams as they hope to remain in the hunt to secure a place in the playoffs.
