The Tennessee Titans (1-1) travel to Cleveland this week to face the Browns (1-1). Kickoff is scheduled for 1 pm, EDT; noon, CDT, on Sunday, Sept. 24.

The two clubs last played in 2020, when the Browns visited Nissan Stadium and departed with a 41-35 victory. It broke Tennessee’s three-game winning streak in the series, which includes Titans victories in each of the last two clashes in Cleveland (2017 and 2019).

The Titans won last week’s home opener against the Los Angeles Chargers in dramatic fashion. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill accounted for two total touchdowns, and Nick Folk’s 41-yard field goal in overtime provided the margin in a 27-24 victory.

Tannehill established a single-game career high with an 83.3 completion percentage (minimum 20 attempts), completing 20 of 24 passes for 246 yards. His afternoon included a 70-yard pass to Treylon Burks, a four-yard touchdown pass to Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, and a 12-yard rushing touchdown. In leading the team to the game’s final score in overtime, he was credited with his 27th career game-winning drive, including the regular season and postseason.

Titans running back Derrick Henry led the offense with 95 scrimmage yards, including a team-high 80 rushing yards. He scored on a one-yard carry, which was the 79th rushing touchdown of his career. His next rushing touchdown can make him the seventh NFL player in the Super Bowl era (1966–present) to reach 8,000 rushing yards and 80 rushing touchdowns within his first eight seasons.
