The Titans head to Cleveland to face the Browns and they have to have a ton of confidence after scoring a 28-point win in their season opener.
On the other side of the coin while the Browns played decent pass defense in their season opening loss against the Jets they gave up 31 points and their offense struggled.
To say that Marcus Mariota had a solid NFL debut would be a major understatement. In the opening win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers he was 13/16 for 209 yards and he had 4 TD.
Last season these 2 teams met at Tennessee with the Titans winning 29-28.
The big question for the Browns in this game is who will be the starting QB? Josh McCown suffered a concussion in the Week 1 loss to the Jets and if he is not cleared to play look for Johnny Manziel to get the start.
When he came in for McCown last week he went 13/24 for 182 yards and a TD, but also committed 3 turnovers in the 2nd half.
The Browns turned the ball over 5 times in the loss to the Jets and if that happens again they will be 0-2.
Manziel was also the leading rusher in the New York game with 35 yards and Isaiah Crowell, who got the most carries, averaged a paltry 1.7 yards per carry.
He and Duke Johnson have to help the QB out in this game and will face a Tennessee run defense that only gave up 92 rushing yards in their win over the Bucs.
The Cleveland offensive line has a tall task facing a Tennessee pass rush that had 4 sacks in their season opening win.
Mariota had a dazzling debut for the Titans, but it was facing a Tampa Bay pass defense that is suspect to say the least. In one bright spot for Cleveland in their season opener they only allowed 179 passing yards.
Not only did Mariota have a good game against Tampa, but so did RB Bishop Sankey, who rushed for 74 yards on 12 carries. He will be facing a Cleveland run defense that gave up 154 rushing yards in the loss to the Jets.
Can the Browns get it going in Week 2 against an upstart Titans’ team? Big question for Cleveland and maybe, more importantly, Johnny Football.
Mariota will be facing a solid Cleveland secondary and if the rookie plays like he did last week the Browns may be in trouble with the issues on offense they have.
