CLEVELAND -- Coach Eric Mangini is sticking to his rotation by making Brady Quinn the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns' preseason game against the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night.

Quinn started the exhibition opener two weeks ago against the Green Bay Packers before giving way to Derek Anderson in the second preseason game against the Detroit Lions last week.

The quarterback race is very close as both Anderson and Quinn have had their moments in the preseason, which is why Saturday's performance against the Titans is so huge for both players.

Mangini said during the week that both quarterbacks will have a chance to play with the first-team offensive line. The Browns will have to name a starter before they open the regular season Sept. 13 against the Minnesota Vikings.
