NASHVILLE, TN - OCTOBER 16: George Atkinson III
NASHVILLE, TN - OCTOBER 16: George Atkinson III /

The Tennessee Titans face the Cleveland Browns for the seventh regular season game of 2017. Here’s everything you need to know.

After a big primetime win over the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football, the Tennessee Titans travel to Cleveland to take on the winless Browns. Though the Browns have looked unimposing, this has the “look” of a trap game. The Titans are on a short week after a somewhat emotional win against a team they hadn’t beaten in six years, while the Browns are getting healthier on defense and will be at home looking for their first win.

The Titans are fully expected to win this game, but as we saw last year, the Browns shouldn’t be underestimated. In the NFL, any team can beat any other team anywhere on any given week. Tennessee needs to be smart with the football and force rookie QB DeShone Kizer into sacks and turnovers so they can head into the bye week with a 4-3 record.
