Welcome back Ryan Fitzpatrick.
A poor punt allowed the Titans to open the first second-half possession from their own 41-yard line. Consecutive runs by Titans running back Jackie Battle only gained three yards, with nice stops being made by safety Shawn Williams.
The Titans have third and seven from the Titans 44-yard line when Fitzpatrick takes the shotgun snap. Waited. Waited. Enjoying the pocket protection keeping the quarterback free from intrusion. Eventually Fitzpatrick finds receiver Damian Williams down the right sidelines. Shawn Williams, covering the receiver, gambled by diving to deflect the pass but missed allowing Williams to gain 27 yards on the play.
A handful of gains by Battle pushed the Titans to the Bengals 13-yard line when Tennessee's offense stalled, capped by an incomplete to Williams on third down.
Maikon Bonani successfully converted the 26-yard field goal to reduce Cincinnati's lead 17-6.
