[NFL] Week 1: The Titans that you do not expect (Tennessee Titans vs Cleveland Browns 43-13)
After the 3.725-yard run in 2018, starts in the second year Baker Mayfield at the helm of the team from Ohio received by the sold out that, despite the difficult results of the last times, at FirstEnergy Stadium, it's not so rare.
The enthusiasm can not hide, because when the brown knit with the 13 orange enters the field, the home crowd is dreaming with open eyes; Odell Beckham, Jr. has the whole scene and does not take long to take the reins of the attack in hand. Mayfield is immediately understood with his wide receiver and drill the rear of the Tennessee, from the earliest launches, and lead the drive to a few yards away from red-zone immediately violated by the stroke of Dontrell Hilliard from 4 yards for the 6-0. The extra-point Austin Seibert, instead, is not to be.
The response of the titans is ready, and comes shortly after with a field goal by Cairo Santos with his feet safe score 3 points from the 37 yard line.
The defence of Steve Wilks seems to be able to keep beating, even if Garrett gets a little too much momentum, and commits a foul staff that gives ground to the guests, but Henry scores the TD of advantage for the Titans in the middle of the second part of the game.
Between the file of Cleveland also Greg Robinson is not entirely quiet, in fact, kicks like a donkey on the head of a defender and expel: signs encouraging for the Browns. The manoeuvre of the team of Ohio is nailed even if Garrett keeps the game its taking advantage of an indecision of Marcus Mariota that lands under the sack of Superman. Kent, however, the kick of the punt fabulous and Tennessee puts pressure with the special team that does a great job; the punter leads Wake to the safety on Baker Mayfield. Played amazing!
Half-time on 12-6 for the guests.
We start again with A. J. Brown (game is excellent) that sows panic in the Ohio, Santos takes advantage and adds 3 points to the Titans. The answer is all of Landry even if the action closes with the TD Njoku on the TD pass to Mayfield that restores hope to the hosts. Race 15-13. But there is not even the time to realize that Henry is back for touchdowns after a jinking run on the screen pass play that causes it to grind 75 yards. The second TD for the mighty titan who wears the 22.
K. Byard intercepts Mayfield, so Mariota and Walker connect their terminals to be offensive and score the TD dell 29-13. The scene is repeated shortly after with a déjà vu bitter: interception of Ryan on Bakerone and goodbye dreams of glory, because Mariota and Walker did well at the TD.
Titans galvanized, Browns in the knee. The QB of the Dawg Pound is knocked out, with fans leaving the stands of the race. A real disaster for Cleveland, a true masterpiece for Mike Vrabel!
The man of the match is Dean Pees, defensive coordinator of the Titans, who prepared a perfect race, especially in the secondary with Butler intercepts Mayfield for the third time scoring a pick-six that puts 30 points away on the scoreboard.
Total humiliation for the historic team of the Midwest, got stoned with arrogance. Need to work with a lot of seriousness to straighten the shot because of what we have seen on the field, it is not permissible for a team that began its adventure in 2019 with a desire to arrive until the end. The fantamercato hath highly exalted him, all but the gridiron is not made of paper.
