Another Tough Loss, Titans 28 Browns 26

It's getting a bit repetitious.   The Browns are not a good football team right now, but they can play pretty much even up against other not-so-good teams like Tennessee.  

Some takeaways:

i.  Terrelle Pryor was awesome again, all over the field making unbelieveable catches.  An amazing talent.  I was very worried that the Browns were going to lose him, but then I remembered we have the option to franchise him.  Yes he is worth $15 million dollas for  next year.  Definitely.   

ii.  We had some good results from the defensive line, which has started to show up against the run, Emmanuel Ogbah, Carl Nassib and Danny Shelton have been stepping it up. Shelton had a fantastic game, limiting the Titans' Demarco Murray and even sacking Mariota.  We are hurting in the secondary, however, and overall we are still very weak. You can't give up 30 points a week and make a living in the NFL.

iii.  Cam Erving was an impact player again, and not in a positive way.  I was amazed to see a Titans pass rusher put him on his butt by pushing him with one hand.  Amazing. Erving was also in trouble for trash talking to the point where Josh McCown had to help get him off the field to disengage his mouth. Erving missed several blocks and is trying to kill Cody Kessler.  This is not good.  Something is very wrong with the Browns center.  Maybe he's not healthy yet, I don't know.  

iv.  Cody Kessler is performing at a very high level for a rookie.  Yes, Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott are better.   Yes, it's a limited data set, but Kessler is ranked about 16th in QB rating with 87.9.   The team is moving the ball, scoring points and not turning it over.   I'm not sure that we don't have our quarterback.
