NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Brian Hoyer threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Travis Benjamin with 1:09 left, and the Cleveland Browns rallied from a 25-point deficit in beating the Tennessee Titans 29-28 Sunday for their first road win in more than a year.
The Browns (2-2) won a road game for the first time since Sept. 22, 2013, at Minnesota, and they couldn’t have made it tougher on themselves as they fell behind 28-3 in the first half. They snapped a seven-game road skid scoring 26 unanswered points, including 16 in the fourth quarter.
The Titans (1-4) had a massive collapse. Jake Locker didn’t return after hurting his right hand in the second quarter, and backup Charlie Whitehurst couldn’t protect the big lead.
Tennessee turned the ball over on downs at the Titans 42. Hoyer finished off the comeback with his second TD to Benjamin in the quarter for Cleveland’s first lead.
