The Titans' defense harassed Joe Burrow, sacking him five times which tied the team's franchise playoff record. Most of the damage was done by the front, specifically Denico Autry who had 2 sacks. Ryan Tannehill was intercepted on his first pass attempt but rebounded in the 2nd qtr to lead the Titans on their lone TD drive courtesy of Derrick Henry's 3-yd score. Despite struggling offensively for most of the game, the Titans trail by a 9-6 score. The Bengals get the ball back to start the half.
