The Cleveland Browns lost yet again to the Tennessee Titans (28-26) as their quarterbacking woes continue. With Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown out due to respective injuries, rookie Cody Kessler has been tasked to do the inevitable.

Despite the tall odds ahead for Cody Kessler, he has proven to have the heart to win. Despite another loss that sent the boys of Hue Jackson reeling to 0-6, the rookie has gained the admiration and respect by most for his willingness to win. Proof of that was his two touchdown drives against the Titans in the last 2:07 of the match, where Kessler showed he wanted to win the game so bad for the team.

Kessler not staying down

Coming with the quarterback job is the sacks that Kessler will be getting. He got a fair share of that from Titan’s defense Dick LeBeau, who sacked him six times aside from taking him down on other occasions. Despite the hard hits, Kessler just wouldn’t stay down and got up like what a true warrior would do, ESPN reported.

A couple of Browns teammates took notice of Kessler’s efforts. Browns receiver Terrelle Pryor and left tackle Joe Thomas were witness to the tenacity of Kessler, technically a bright spot that could eventually rub off on the whole team.

Captain “Lionheart”

Worth noting is that Kessler is not 100% healthy as well. He got hurt taking a hit on a backward pass against New England, proof how the kid is doing his best to help the Browns get their first win of the 2016 NFL season, Fox Sports reported.

Kessler went 26-of-41 for 336 yards and two touchdowns in the Cleveland Browns' 28-26 loss to the Tennessee Titans, but it was his sturdiness that stood out despite another loss. He played like a veteran, holding fort with RG3 and McCown relegated to the sidelines.
