NASHVILLE, Nov. 6 (UPI) -- Andy Dalton launched three touchdown passes, including two during a second-half rally, and the Cincinnati Bengals posted a 24-17 win over Tennessee.

Trailing 17-7 at halftime, Dalton connected with Jerome Simpson on a 15-yard scoring strike in the third quarter and then found Andre Caldwell with a 5-yarder early in the fourth, putting the Bengals ahead to stay.

Dalton finished with 217 yards on 22-of-39 efficiency for Cincinnati (6-2), which notched a fifth straight win for the first time in 13 years.

The Bengals held the Titans to just 95 yards of total offense in the second half.

Matt Hasselbeck went 24-of-41 for 272 yards and two touchdowns for Tennessee (4-4).

Chris Johnson added 110 all-purpose yards as the Titans lost for the third time in four games.
