There as many reasons to kick and make it a one possession game as there are for going for two to cut the lead to seven points.
"I went for two early because I know at some point we needed to go for it", Jackson said.
Parker's second onside attempt was recovered by Andre Johnson and the game was over.
Haden Out: CB Joe Haden was inactive with a groin injury that surfaced on Thursday. But the Browns managed just 40 yards on 15 carries.

Bangladesh vs England 2nd ODI: Buttler unhappy with home team's celebrations
It is in front of a worldwide audience and we are all there as role models for the young kids coming through. The umpires ushered Buttler away and Bangladesh went on to win the match by 34 runs.
The Titans (3-3) also notched their first win at home against a team not the Jacksonville Jaguars since the end of the 2013 season and their first winning streak since the end of the 2013 season.
Poyer was taken to Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital after being crushed on a block while chasing down Titans returner Marc Mariani when Antonio Andrews hit him, knocking Poyer to the ground with 6:33 left in the second quarter.

The Browns didn't convert on the two-point play, and thus it didn't matter all that much when they recovered an onside kick and then scored a touchdown with 27 seconds left on the clock. It looked like the former Heisman Trophy victor was going to overthrow his receiver, but Wright ended up making one of the NFL's best catches of the year. He had a 132.6 passer rating.
The difference in the first half seemed to be the Titans' ability to finish drives with touchdowns whereas the Browns were forced to settle for two field goals. That was their first opening TD drive since the season opener of 2015. The Browns were hurt by the sacks and by their 3-of-14 success rate on third down. That set up Mariota's third scoring strike of the game, a 15-yarder to Anthony Fasano with 6:43 left that made it 28-13. Erving committed the penalty on the very first play from scrimmage. But on third-and-1 from the 22, defensive lineman Karl Klug blew through the Browns offensive line and tackled running back Isaiah Crowell for a 5-yard loss. One more draft, even with the four additional picks acquired for 2017 by Executive Vice President of Football Operations Sashi Brown, isn't going to fix everything. Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright said he wasn't too anxious. A split-second later, Kindred hit Wright and knocked him into the end zone to complete the 48-yard touchdown, and the Titans seized a 14-6 lead with 11:51 left in the second quarter.
