While holding onto a seven-point lead with 19 seconds in the game, Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck takes the snap out of shotgun. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap explodes out of his three-point stance, using speed and leverage to his advantage sacking the quarterback for a seven-yard loss. As soon as the play was over, Dunlap held onto his right hamstring as trainers sprinted onto the field.

According to the Bengals.com twitter account, "indications are that Carlos Dunlap" suffered from "cramps and not a hamstring injury." Following the game during interviews, Dunlap feels certain that it was just a cramp:

I think it was a cramp, but I am not a doctor. We are going to do whatever we need to get it evaluated.

Dunlap led the team with two quarterback sacks, two quarterbacks hits and a pass deflection that was initially ruled a backward pass, which he took into the endzone for the touchdown. Replay showed that the pass was moving ever so slightly forward and ruled an incomplete pass.

According to Geoff Hobson, Dunlap may have also suffered a hamstring strain and will be examined on Monday.
