TEAM NOTES

• The Titans scored 35 total points, registering their fourth game of 2020 with at least 35 points. It is the second consecutive season they have had at least four 35-point performances (five in 2019) and the sixth season in franchise history with at least four 35-point games (1960, 1961, 1988, 2012).

• For the fourth season in franchise history, the Titans have scored at least 30 points on seven different occasions. It is the first time since 2003 (eight games) that they have scored 30-plus points seven times, and the only other years in which the team accomplished the feat were 1961 (nine games) and 1988 (seven).

• The Titans scored 28 points in the second half, their most in the second half of a game since they had a 35-point second half against Jacksonville on Nov. 24, 2019.

• With 431 total net yards of offense, the Titans registered their third consecutive game reaching the 400-yard mark. It is the first time the team accomplished the feat since Oct. 1-16, 2000.

• The Titans recorded their sixth overall game in 2020 with at least 400 total net yards. It is only the sixth season in franchise history that the team reached 400 total net yards on six different occasions, but it is the second consecutive season doing so after accomplishing the feat in 2019.

• After tallying 25 first downs against the Browns, the Titans have a current streak of four consecutive games with at least 25 total first downs, which is the longest current streak in the NFL. Going back to the beginning of the 1991 campaign, it is the first time the Titans/Oilers have had more than three consecutive games with 25-plus first downs. Since 1991, the franchise's only other streak of three games with 25 or more first downs was Nov. 7-21, 1993.
