DENVER — The Broncos improved to 6-0 on Sunday after beating the Cleveland Browns, 26-23, in a wild overtime game.

But it was no thanks to quarterback Peyton Manning, who threw three interceptions, including one that was returned for a touchdown that put the Broncos in serious jeopardy of losing their first game of the season.

Manning has been criticized all season as the Broncos offense has been stagnant. Manning leads the league with 10 interceptions and the Broncos have scored only one offensive touchdown in their past 32 drives.

On Sunday, he was 26 of 48 for 290 yards, but 75 of those yards came on a touchdown pass to Emmanuel Sanders in the fourth quarter.

Manning’s performance has started a #BenchPeyton and #BenchManning movement on Twitter, and it was out in full force during Sunday’s game as well as from other fans who want a change at quarterback despite the 6-0 record.

Here’s a roundup of the best comments from the movement.
