The Cleveland Browns were finally supposed to be a different team. Instead, the underdog Tennessee Titans routed them 43-13 Sunday, turning Cleveland’s most anticipated opener in decades into a debacle.
Baker Mayfield was sacked five times, and forced into three interceptions, including a pick-six exclamation point by Tennessee’s Malcolm Butler late in the game.
The Browns also committed 18 penalties for 182 yards, their most penalties in a game since 1951 and only five penalties off the NFL record set by the Oakland Raiders in 2016 to extend the league’s longest winless streak in season openers to 15 games.
Browns left tackle Greg Robinson was ejected for kicking Titans safety Kenny Vaccaro in the head near the end of a play.
Marcus Mariota threw three touchdown passes, one on a stunning 75-yarder to Derrick Henry.
