NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Andy Dalton threw for three touchdowns and 217 yards, and the Cincinnati Bengals rallied from a 10-point deficit and beat the Tennessee Titans 24-17 Sunday for their fifth straight victory and longest winning streak since 1988.

The Bengals (6-2) hadn't won five straight since 1988 when they won the AFC championship and went to their second Super Bowl. They also improved to 4-1 on the road with the rookie quarterback leading the Bengals to 17 unanswered points as he tossed TD passes to three different receivers.

Tennessee (4-4) has lost two of three to wrap up a three-game homestand. Chris Johnson had 110 yards from scrimmage, but the Titans blew a 17-7 halftime lead when the offense shut down in the second half.

Tennessee managed just 95 yards in the final 30 minutes with 30 on the final play that came up well short of the end zone.
