Quarterback Joe Flacco never got untracked in Cleveland, throwing an interception near the goal line and averaging just 4.52 yards on 56 attempts. The performance was his worst in an otherwise promising start. The Browns shadowed receiver John Brown with their best cornerback and held him to four catches on 14 targets. Receiver Michael Crabtree promised to “get back in the lab” after he dropped a potential game-winning touchdown against the Browns.
Quarterback Marcus Mariota played his best game of the season in a Week 4 win over the Philadelphia Eagles but threw an interception and averaged just 4.96 yards an attempt in a Week 5 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Tennessee ranks 29th in passing yards and 27th in passing DVOA, according to Pro Football Outsiders. Wide receiver Corey Davis has been the team’s top passcatching threat with 26 receptions for 361 yards. Dion Lewis is a threat out of the backfield with 21 catches.
