Strong defense and missed field goal gives Dalton a sigh of relief

Thankfully the Bengals defense stiffened up after a bend-but-don't-break performance during the Titans opening possession.

After Andy Dalton handed off the football to the opposing team on a sack, fumble, and Titans recovery, the Bengals defense forced a three-and-out with a disruptive Adam Jones coverage on Nate Washington near the front left pylon on third and three.

To bring momentum more in Cincinnati's favor, Rob Bironas kicks the 38-yard attempt wide.
