  • NASHVILLE, Tenn. Miguel Yajure Jersey . - The Cleveland Browns shook off a sluggish start with a finish for the NFL record book.Brian Hoyer threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Travis Benjamin with 1:09 left, and the Browns rallied from a 25-point deficit to beat the Tennessee Titans 29-28 on Sunday. It was the largest comeback in league history by a road team.Only two other clubs have come back from bigger deficits in the regular season. San Francisco rallied from 28 down in beating New Orleans on Dec. 7, 1980, and Buffalo trailed 26-0 before beating Indianapolis 37-35 on Sept. 21, 1997.Every Browns game this season has been decided by three points or fewer.I did tell them after the game they got to stop doing it, first-year Cleveland coach Mike Pettine said. I have an EKG scheduled for tomorrow because my heart cant take many more of these.It also was the biggest comeback in Browns history. On Dec. 4, 1966, Cleveland trailed the Giants 34-14 and won 49-40, according to STATS.On Sunday, the Browns (2-2) won a road game for the first time since Sept. 22, 2013, at Minnesota. That looked unlikely when they fell behind 28-3 in the first half.Cleveland snapped a seven-game road losing streak by scoring 26 unanswered points, including 16 in the fourth quarter.Its just good to win, Hoyer said. I said when we broke it down, Lets just win one by two touchdowns one week and not give everybody a heart attack. Its great to always win, but to win coming back and know that you battled your butt off is a great feeling.It was the biggest regular-season lead blown by the Titans (1-4) a€” a franchise that once squandered a 35-3 advantage to Buffalo in the playoffs as the Houston Oilers.Unbelievably tough loss for us today after we played so well in the first half, Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said.Jake Locker didnt return after hurting his right thumb in the second quarter. X-rays were negative, but hell have more tests Monday. Backup Charlie Whitehurst couldnt protect the big lead.Tennessee turned the ball over on downs at the Titans 42 with 3:03 left when the Browns stopped Whitehurst on fourth down and less than a yard to go. Whitehurst said he didnt hear a whistle stopping his forward progress, and he finished by sticking the ball out. Whisenhunt also thought Whitehurst got the first down.The Titans coach said he did think about punting.I felt like with Cleveland having one timeout, we had a chance to win the game, Whisenhunt said.Hoyer finished off the comeback with his second TD to Benjamin in the quarter for Clevelands first lead.The Titans had one last chance with 1:09 left. But time expired just after Whitehurst found Kendall Wright on a pass past midfield.Hoyer finished 21 of 37 for 292 yards, and he started the Browns comeback with a 1-yard TD pass to Jim Dray just before halftime. He also connected with Benjamin on a 17-yard TD pass after Cleveland got the ball on a free kick off a safety early in the fourth quarter. Tank Carder had blocked Brett Kerns punt through the end zone.Its the fourth straight loss for the Titans, and it could be very costly with a handful of players limping off.Whisenhunt streamlined his offence in trying to jump-start his struggling team. It worked as the Titans scored on two of their first three drives.Locker was leading an 80-yard drive when cornerback Buster Skrine blitzed, hitting Locker in the head. Lockers hand hit Skrines helmet as he threw, and the quarterback immediately signalled first down before going to the sideline, then to the locker room.Two of Whitehursts first three passes went for TDs, with the second a career long of 75 yards to Justin Hunter for a 28-3 lead late in the first half. That was it for the Titans offence as the Browns cranked up their comeback.NOTES: The Browns finally had their first turnover on an interception by Titans safety Michael Griffin with 4:55 left in the fourth quarter. They were the last NFL team to turn over the ball this season. ... Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is from Knoxville, Tennessee, and his brother, Bill, is governor. ... The Titans remembered Rob Bironas with a blue No. 2 on the back of their helmets and a moment of silence in their first home game since their former kicker died Sept. 20 in a one-vehicle crash.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Teresa M.
