Bengals first-team offense woes continue with sack and fumble

Following Tennessee's 11-play drive that opened the game with a 3-0 lead, Brandon Tate returned the football 20 yards to the Bengals 25-yard line -- stopped when he collided with Orson Charles around the 20-yard line. Nice.

Andy Dalton sits under center with double tight ends, fakes the handoff and flips the football to wide receiver Marvin Jones on a comeback route for a 17-yard gain.

And then we're stalled.

Giovani Bernard picked up two yards between a microscopic hole on the left side of the line. On second down with eight yards needed for a first, Dalton is hit during his throwing motion with forces an incomplete and sets up a third and eight from their own 44-yard line.

Dalton takes the shotgun snap with Bernard to his left. Facing a five-man rush, Dalton tries stepping up into the pocket when defensive tackle Jurrell Casey steals the football from Dalton's grip. It's a sack. Fumble. Titans football.

Oh, boy.
