Bengals Beat Titans

Today the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Tennessee Titans, 24-17. It didn't look good in the first half as the Titans moved the ball up and down the field. The Titans were leading 17-7.

But football games are composed of four quarters. Last year the Cincinnati Bengals would crumble like a cookie in the second half. This year, the Bengals play the all four quarters. They fight in the second half. The Bengals defense woke up. The defensive line were in Titans QB Matt Hasselback all day. And what can I say about Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap? The guys is going to be a star. Two sacks. He did tweak his hamstring, so let's hope he's okay. (Post game interview indicates a muscle knot.) But the result of the defense's effort? Shut out the Titans.

And what about Bengals rookies QB Andy Dalton and A.J. Green? Dalton runs the offense like he's been around for three years. There's ice water in his veins. Green caught some clutch passes. One was for a first down after the Bengals were set back for a holding call. Dalton led the Bengals for two drives of 65 and 75 yards. Three touchdown passes. Wow. Bengals win 24-17 GOING AWAY. Five in a row. Bengals are now 6-2.

Here are the highlights Bengals Nation. I listened to the post game interviews. And the players are talking about next week's game. Next week, we play those bums from Pittsburgh at sold out Paul Brown Stadium. Bring on the Steelers. But by thinking about next week's game, that shows this team is concerned about a goal. The goal? Win the Super Bowl.
