CLEVELAND, Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Matt Hasselbeck tossed a trio of touchdown passes and the Tennessee Titans continued their hot start with a 31-13 victory over Cleveland.

Hasselbeck gained 220 yards on 10-of-20 passing efficiency and the Titans logged their first 3-1 start since 2008, when they won 10 straight to begin that season before finishing 13-3.

Chris Johnson picked up 100 rushing yards on 23 carries while Jared Cook chipped in with 93 yards receiving on two catches, including an 80-yard score.

Tennessee's defense also got into the act, with Jonathan Babineaux returning a pick-off 97 yards for a third-quarter touchdown.

Cleveland (2-2) lost despite a fine day from Colt McCoy, who completed 40-of-61 passes for 350 yards and a touchdown.

Peyton Hillis, however, was held to 46 rushing yards on 10 tries.
