Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Cody Kessler has replaced DeShone Kizer at quarterback. He gets to start his first drive from the 1.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

DeShone Kizer threw interceptions on consecutive passes to end the first half and start the second. That gave the Browns 16 interceptions on the year. No team started the weekend with more than eight.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Taylor Lewan won the first half matchup with Myles Garrett. Garrett credited unofficially with two tackles, one solo, none for a loss and no sacks in first half.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

DeShone Kizer's interception was his eighth turnover inside the opponent's 40-yard line. No one else in the NFL has more than four. Per ESPN Stats.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The defense held the Titans to two field goals in the first half, but the offense produced only a field goal, and had a last minute turnover. By Browns standards, though, walking into the locker room down three qualifies as a "win."

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

The lack of production from Marcus Mariota and the Titans' offense in the first half ought to be particularly alarming given who they are playing against. Entering today, no team had allowed a higher opponent Total QBR than the Browns.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Pass to Higgins way overthrown and intercepted by Titans at 7. Browns did have a nice drive going.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

In this half, the Browns have jumped offside three times on third and less than 5. Result: a gimme first down for Titans.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Replay challenge that went Browns way leads to Zane Gonzalez field goal. Positive risk-reward on that challenge by Hue Jackson.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Odd timing for gimmick call, with snap to Duke Johnson and pitch to DeShone Kizer. Resulted in penalty that helped short-circuit drive. Browns had moved from their 6 to Titans 42, then went with gadget.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Browns have gone to more of a short, quick passing game, which is a wise move for rookie QB DeShone Kizer. Have drive going as first quarter ends.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Kickoff crowd in Cleveland, week 7. And on the opening kickoff the Browns were offside.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Should learn something about this guy today. Myles Garrett faces Taylor Lewan, a big, powerful and nasty offensive tackle.

David Purdum ESPN Staff Writer 

As of noon ET, more money has been bet on the Tennessee Titans-Cleveland Browns game than any other game at William Hill's 107 Nevada sportsbooks. Eighty-four percent of the money bet on the game is on the favored Titans.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Browns are going with the brown and brown look today, with orange socks. No comment from the fashion police.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

DB Jason McCourty is INACTIVE for the Browns today. It's not just a negative for their pass defense — heads up, owners of Marcus Mariota, Rishard Matthews and Eric Decker — but also in IDP leagues, where McCourty had been performing as a top-5 DB to date. S Jabrill Peppers is also INACTIVE for the Browns.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Complete list of Browns inactives: QB Kevin Hogan (WR Ricardo Louis is the third QB), S Jabrill Peppers, CB Jason McCourty, LB James Burgess, OL Marcus Martin and Zach Banner, DL T.Y. McGill.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

WR Kenny Britt is active one week after being sent home from Houston for missing curfew. Britt will be a lightning rod for negativity in front of the home fans, especially if he's in the starting lineup.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Ibraheim Campbell (aka I-C) will start at safety for Jabrill Peppers, Briean Boddy-Calhoun at CB for Jason McCourty. Michael Jordan figures to be the third corner.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Browns will be without two starters in the secondary, as S Jabrill Peppers (toe) and CB Jason McCourty (ankle) are both inactive. Hue Jackson seemed positive on Friday that both would play.

FPI: Titans have major edge in Cleveland

By FPI's measure, this is the Browns' best remaining chance to win a game this season, narrowly ahead of a Week 15 visit from the Ravens. That said, the Titans have a better-than 3-2 advantage on Sunday.

Sources: Browns WRs misunderstand curfew

Sources say that WRs Kenny Britt and Corey Coleman, despite not being active for last weekend's loss to the Texans, were sent home for missing curfew, even though previous inactive players have not had to follow curfew rules.

Week 7 NFL score predictions: Titans at Browns

Maybe we're incurably stubborn. Let's take another stab at Cleveland finally putting a "1" in the win column, against a visitor coming in on a short week.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Kevin Hogan was shut down this week with his bruised ribs; Hogan did not even run the scout team. Cody Kessler will be the backup, with Ricardo Louis the emergency third. "And after that Hue Jackson," the coach quipped.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

CB Jason McCourty has played well for the Browns, but he tweaked an ankle in practice this week and is one of four players listed as questionable for the Titans. Others are WRs Kenny Britt and Sammie Coates, and S Jabrill Peppers.
