Game Overview

The Browns and Titans square off for the first time since Tim Couch led the Browns past the Titans in Nashville in a thrilling 31-28 victory. Couch threw for over 300 yards and had three touchdowns in the game.

The Titans came on strong after that game and towards the end of the season, however, compiling an 11-5 record and getting to the AFC Championship Game. The Titans resurgence was due not only to offensive stars Eddie George and Steve McNair, but also to a much-improved defense, which ranked fifth in the AFC in total defense.

The Browns will be looking to evaluate players battling for starting roles in a number of positions. The quarterback battle gets the most media attention, and will feature Tim Couch starting, followed by Kelly Holcomb. The Browns also have contests for starting jobs all over the team, including critical decisions to be made at the cornerback position, linebacker, and offensive guard.

Browns fans will also be getting their first televised look at the team's new draft choices, which include starting center Jeff Faine, and a number of players seemingly destined for backup roles in 2003: LB Chaun Thompson, DB Chris Crocker, LS Ryan Pontbriand, CB Michael Lehan, and DT Antonio Garay. All are likely to see playing time on Saturday night.
