Salvages night with receiving TD

Gordon rushed eight times for 18 yards and brought in two of three targets for 14 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' 17-14 loss to the Browns on Thursday night.

Gordon's 2.3 yards per carry average underscores how tough the sledding was against Cleveland's stingy run defense, but the veteran back still gave fantasy managers some consolations with his eight-yard scoring grab midway through the third quarter. Gordon doubled up Javonte Williams in carries, but the eight rushing touches still qualified as his lowest total in that category this season. The Broncos will hope to be able to run a more balanced attack in a Week 8 home matchup versus Washington a week from Sunday.
