Collins added a 9-yard TD pass to Justin Gage in the third quarter.
Dorsey started because the Browns have lost both Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson. Dorsey hadn't completed a pass in three years in an NFL game, and he started well enough, connecting with Braylon Edwards on the first two attempts. He wound up completing 22-of-43 as the Titans pressured him early and hit him often.
The Browns also tried running Joshua Cribbs from the quarterback spot. He finally got to throw in the fourth period, trailing 28-9, and Edwards just missed getting a second foot down for what would have been their longest completion.
"We're not last year's team," Cribbs said. "We have a different football team. We have to play better football."
Tennessee finally got it together late in the first quarter in a 68-yard drive capped by the TD to Hall. Pinned at their 7, the Titans put together their longest scoring drive this season by moving 93 yards in 10 plays, with White running in from the 3 for his 14th TD this season for a 14-6 lead just before halftime.
During the drive, Johnson joined Hall of Famer Earl Campbell and Eddie George as the only rookies in franchise history to rush for 1,000 yards, and he topped that mark with a 15-yarder on only his ninth carry.
Notes: White tied George for the second-highest single-season total in team history. ... The Titans snapped a three-game skid in this series with their former AFC Central rival. ... With his first two field goals, Dawson reached 28 made this season for a career high, and added a 39-yarder in the fourth quarter. He missed a 44-yarder wide right in the third quarter. ... Cleveland's injury list grew with linebacker Shantee Orr hurting a knee, and running back Jerome Harrison hurt his ribs.
