The Cleveland Browns suffered a crushing loss to the Tennessee Titans, but which Browns stood out and who didn’t on Sunday?
Cleveland Browns fans entered Sunday believing they were about to witness the turnaround of the Browns with an exciting home opener.
However, after a fast start to the game, they were left massively disappointed. Most of the sold-out crowd left early on in the fourth quarter deciding not to watch the end of Cleveland’s 43-13 loss to the Titans.
Although Browns fans were expecting a victory on Sunday, the Tennessee Titans were a tough matchup for the season opener. They are a hard-nosed team with a top defense who was not going to be afraid of Cleveland’s offensive weapons.
That was shown on Sunday, as they did not back down from the Browns, even after Cleveland’s offense marched right down the field on the first drive of the game for a touchdown. After that drive, the Titans defense took control for most of the game.
The Browns offense seemed to not make many adjustments and the Titans defense took advantage of it. Cleveland also making several penalties, putting them behind the chains made life even more difficult for Baker Mayfield and the offense.
Penalties were also happening often on the defensive side of the ball, giving the Titans offense extra chances to move down the field and score points. If it weren’t for the penalties, the Browns defense started the game playing well enough to hold off the Titans offensive attack. Instead, they shot themselves in the foot with penalties.
After such a disappointing season opener, here is a look at the studs and duds from the Cleveland Browns’ loss to the Titans.
