CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Browns lost 43-13 against the Tennessee Titans in the first game of the 2019 NFL season at FirstEnergy Stadium.

The Browns powered down the field in the opening drive. Ultimately, Dontrell Hilliard took the first run into the end zone.

After a scoreless stretch, the Titans pushed into the end zone, thanks in part, to a lot of penalties.

The Browns were riddled with penalties throughout the first half.

Offensive tackle Greg Robinson was disqualified for kicking a Tennessee Titan in the head.

In the third quarter, it was announced that OT Kendall Lamm wouldn't be returning due to a knee injury. Dontrell Hilliard was also taken out for a concussion.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield threw his first touchdown of the season in the third quarter.

The celebration was short lived with the Titans scoring four more touchdowns in third and fourth quarters.

The following Browns are slated to be inactive for today's game against the Titans:

QB Garrett Gilbert
WR Taywan Taylor
LB Sione Takitaki
LB Genard Avery
