Per 506sports, the fans in the blue areas below will be able to watch the game on TV:
-The Browns will be wearing white tops, white pants, and orange socks.
-Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton was the Titans’ defensive coordinator from 2014-2015. Defensive backs coach Louie Cioffi and assistant defensive backs coach Cannon Matthews also jumped ship from Tennessee to Cleveland this offseason.
-Browns owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam are Knoxville natives and attended the University of Tennessee.
-Tennessee coaches with former ties to the Browns are offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie (2001-2006), offensive assistant Luke Steckel (2009-2012, assistant offensive line coach Mike Sullivan (2001-2004, 2007-2008, and 2013), and defensive line coach Nick Eason (played for the Browns from 2004-2006).
-With a receiving touchdown, WR Andrew Hawkins would catch touchdown passes in back-to-back games for the first time since scoring in Weeks 2-3 of the 2012 season with the Bengals.
After being promoted from the practice squad last week, TE Connor Hamlett caught a 17-yard touchdown for his first NFL reception against the Patriots. He is the first Browns player to register a receiving touchdown on his first NFL catch since WR Andre Davis did it on September 8, 2002.
-LT Joe Thomas will make his 150th career start against the Titans.
-The last time these two teams was on September 20th, 2015 in Week 2 of the regular season at FirstEnergy Stadium, when the Browns defeated the Titans 28-14. QB Josh McCown suffered a concussion to open the season, so QB Johnny Manziel was promptly forced into the starting lineup.
This was the Travis Benjamin show as Cleveland jumped out to a 21-0 lead with a 60-yard touchdown pass to Benjamin, an 11-yard touchdown run by RB Isaiah Crowell, and a 78-yard punt return touchdown by Benjamin. At the end of the third quarter, QB Marcus Mariota began storming back. First, he hit TE Anthony Fasano from 19 yards out to make it a 21-7 game. Mid-way through the fourth quarter, he hit WR Dorial Green-Beckham for a 13-yard score to make it 21-14.
Fearful of a comeback, Manziel came through with an improvised play, rolling to his left and finding Benjamin for a 50-yard touchdown with just under three minutes to go. Manziel finished the game 8-of-15 for 172 yards and 2 TDs. The Browns sacked Mariota seven times, but the only player still left on the team who sacked Mariota last year is DL Jamie Meder.
