NFL Week 4: Titans @ Browns
Tennessee Titans @ Cleveland Browns Sun. Oct. 2, 2011 1 p.m. EST
The Tennessee Titans came into this NFL regular season with a new-look as they had released longtime quarterback Vince Young and had to find a new starter after losing veteran Kerry Collins to retirement. Even though the Titans drafted a very promising young quarterback in Jake Locker out of Washington, the team needed a veteran under center in order to compete in the AFC Conference and possibly contend for a playoff spot.
Fortunately, the Tennessee Titans were able to get their hands on veteran free agent gunslinger Matt Hasselback and so far the results have been much better than anticipated. Hasselback might not be putting up numbers like Tom Brady (New England Patriots), Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints) or Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers), but he is doing enough to get the job done as the veteran has led the Titans to a 2-1 record heading into Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns.
Much like the Tennessee Titans, the Cleveland Browns have been much better than anticipated this season with second-year quarterback Colt McCoy leading the way. With an identical 2-1 record, the Browns will be fighting for a chance to improve their stance within their division with a win over the Titans.
As of right now, the Cleveland Browns are favored to get the win in Week 4 over the Tennessee Titans with a -1 point spread. This spread could get much bigger for the Browns over the week with the status of running back Peyton Hillis being released.
