Bengals vs. Titans: Halftime Analysis and Box Score


 

 

It’s halftime in Cincinnati, as the Bengals lead the Tennessee titans, 17-3. The three biggest reasons for that score are as follows:

1. Giovani Bernard dazzled the Titans defense on his way to 55 total yards (33 rushing, 22 receiving) on two offensive drives, both of which ended in touchdowns

2. Mohamed Sanu looks every bit the receiver that caught fire late last season, and looks like a legitimate No. 2 option to pair alongside A.J. Green. He notched three critical receptions on just three targets, and one of them was a redzone score.

3. Titans kickers combined to go 1/4, and the three misses were chip-shots by NFL standards.
