However, the Browns roar back scoring 30 points in the 2nd half, and driving for the game tying TD in the final 2 minutes. However, the Browns dreams would come up just a few yards short as RB Earnest Byner fumbles at the goal line (the play would simply be call The Fumble) Jeremiah Castille recovered, Denver ran down the clock taking an intentional safety with 8 seconds left as the Browns fall 38–33. Denver would return to the Super Bowl for a second straight year at the expense of the Browns.
