The Cleveland Browns were on their way to another awful start to the road game. They were down 28-3 near the end of the first quarter...but then just like the Week 1 game against Pittsburgh, the Browns turned things up a notch. The difference this time? They held on to win.
The Browns went on a 26-0 run to end the game, with the final, go-ahead score being a 6-yard touchdown pass from QB Brian Hoyer to WR Travis Benjamin with 1:09 to play in the game. The Browns' defense held off QB Charle Whitehurst's attempt to get Tennessee into field goal range, and the Browns have now moved to 2-2 on the season.
Masked behind the comeback was a game of some more awful defense, the Browns being a bit fortunate that QB Jake Locker left the game with a hand injury, the Titans committing some awful penalties when they could have had turnovers, and Ken Whisenhunt inexplicably calling a QB sneak at the end of the game on fourth down to set up Cleveland's game-winning score.
We'll break down the game throughout the week, but for now, it's time to celebrate the biggest collapse in Titans history.
Can I say one more thing? Hoyer is absolutely outstanding.
