Second-Half Open Thread: Titans Lead Bengals 17-7

The Titans have outperformed the Bengals so far in their Week 9 matchup in Tennessee. The Bengals have had one scoring drive but the Titans have had three.

If the Bengals are going to come back to win this game, their defense will need to bounce back and play like they have in earlier weeks. They haven't been able to pressure Matt Hasselbeck and Chris Johnson has looked better than he has all season against them.

When we talked to Dan Hoard during our podcast this week, he said he was nervous about this game because the Bengals were bound to let up on the road at some point. Hopefully the Bengals bounce back in the second half but right now it looks like Dan had every reason to be nervous.
