Its part of what were trying to do here, the process of trying to build this thing, you need things like this to happen for you. ... Thats a win, regardless of the final score.CROWELL SHUT DOWNBrowns running back Isaiah Crowell ranked second in the NFL two weeks ago only to be shut down by New England a week ago with only 22 yards on 17 carries. He did even worse against the Titans with only 16 yards on nine carries. The Titans held Cleveland to 40 yards rushing on 15 attempts, forcing the Browns to put the ball in Cody Kesslers hands.The rookie, knocked out of last weeks 33-13 loss to New England with an injured chest, threw 41 passes for a career-high 336 yards and two TDs. He became the third Browns rookie to throw for at least 300 yards and was second only to Brandon Weeden, who threw for 364 yards on Dec. 2, 2012, at Oakland.MARIOTAS TARGETMariotas longest pass Sunday was a 48-yard touchdown to wide receiver Kendall Wright, who missed the first three games recovering from a preseason hamstring injury. Wright finished with eight catches for 133 yards, the second-best performance of his career. It also marked the first 100-yard receiving game for this franchise since Dec. 20, 2015.SACK TIMEThe Titans came in tied for eighth in the NFL with 12 sacks this season, and they added six more by six different players taking advantage of a reshuffled Browns offensive line missing left guard Joe Bitonio. Linebacker Brian Orakpo got one in the third quarter for his seventh this season, giving him at least one sack in five straight games and matching his total for all of last season. Coach (Dick) LeBeau is dialing them up, and he knows whats effective so we are just making it work, linebacker Avery Williamson said. Hope it continues.BATTERED BROWNSNot only did Clevelands skid grow longer, so did the Browns injury list. A team that came in with 12 players on injured reserve or the non-football injury list added defensive back Jordan Poyer with a lacerated kidney. Poyer was taken to a Nashville hospital during the game after being injured trying to tackle on a punt return.
