Little went right for the Cleveland Browns against the Tennessee Titans in a 31-13 loss on Sunday.
Browns quarterback Colt McCoy was 40 of 61 for 350 yards passing, but that was part of the problem. The Browns trailed much of the game forcing McCoy to throw the ball so much. As a result, running back Peyton Hillis only had 10 carries for 46 yards.
Veteran quarterback Matt Hasselbeck put the Titans ahead 21-6 at halftime with three touchdown passes. When the Browns tried to move the ball in the third quarter, it led to the play that put the game out of hand. The Browns were driving deep in Titans territory and McCoy threw an interception that was returned 100 yards for a touchdown.
The stat line shows that McCoy only had one interception, but he should had more as the Titans dropped three bad passes by the Browns quarterback. The Titans weren’t the only ones dropping passes in the game.
Cleveland gave second-year running back Montario Hardesty almost an equal amount of playing time with Hillis and he dropped four easy catches.
The Titans ran the ball with Chris Johnson much of the second half to run the clock down. On the game, Johnson finished with 23 carries for 101 yards.
The 40 completions by McCoy are a new Browns record.
