By the Numbers: Browns out-gain Titans but can’t get out of their own way in loss

We’re combing the stat sheets and analyzing the biggest numbers to come from the Browns’ 43-13 loss to the Titans.

18 - There isn’t a number more important than this one, as the Browns committed a whopping 18 penalties for 182 yards in Sunday’s loss. Even during the team’s game-opening scoring drive, the Browns had to overcome a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Tennessee’s first touchdown drive came to fruition because of a seemingly endless string of penalties.

3 - Interceptions thrown by Baker Mayfield in Sunday’s fourth quarter. The first two turned into Titans touchdowns and the last one was returned for one. That’s how a close game morphed into a rout.

5 - Sacks surrendered by a patchwork offensive line that was decimated by the ejection of Greg Robinson and injury to Kendall Lamm. The Browns surrendered just five sacks during their final eight games of 2018.

346 – Yards of total offense for the Browns, who out-gained the Titans, 346-339.

20 - Rush attempts by the Browns, who gained 102 yards on the ground. Nick Chubb led the way with 75 yards.

159 - Yards of total offense by Titans running back Derrick Henry, who had the biggest play of the game with a 75-yard touchdown on a screen pass.

4 - Number of catches by Titans wide receivers, as Tennessee had its other 10 completions made by running backs and tight ends.

100 - Yards by Titans rookie receiver A.J. Brown, who picked up most of them on two big pass plays that set up two Tennessee field goals.

46.6 - Perhaps the lone bright spot for the Browns was the performance of rookie punter Jamie Gillan, who did not have any of his punts returned and a net of 46.6.

71 - Yards receiving for Odell Beckham Jr. in his Browns debut. He led all Browns receivers in yards and targets (11).

2 - Sacks for Myles Garrett, who also drew a holding penalty on his first one.
