The Cleveland Browns remain win less in the 2016 season by losing to the Tennessee Titans 28-26 in Nashville. However, there were more signs that perhaps the Browns aren't as far off to becoming a competitive team.
The biggest issue on offense continued to be the running game, with Isaiah Crowell only rushing for 16 yards on 9 carries. The offensive line, which has been decimated by injury, couldn't get the holes for the running backs nor protect Kessler very well, giving up 6 sacks and allowing Kessler to be hit 5 more times.
On a better note, the Browns were able to contain Demarco Murray to 65 yards rushing on 21 attempts. The longest run attempt they gave up was to Mariota who ran for 41 yards to start the game. The game also saw Emmanuel Ogbah and Danny Shelton record the first sacks of their careers.
Player of the game: Cody Kessler, with his 306 yards and 2 touchdowns. He looks to be a keeper with his accuracy and smart play.
Next Up: Next Sunday at 1 P.M., the Browns travel to Cincinnati to play the Bengals for the first time this year. It's the first trip back for Hue Jackson since becoming the Browns head coach.
