The third-quarter interception in the red zone may have been the backbreaker for the 2021 Titans, as Tannehill's throw was tipped and intercepted by blitzing Bengals cornerback Mike Hilton.
Tennessee allowed a touchdown on the Bengals' first offensive possession of the third quarter (the Bengals' lead was 16-6), and looked to be in position for a response after a 54-yard run by D'Onta Foreman.

But Tannehill's quick throw at the Bengals' 9-yard line on a quick read was tipped by a blitzing Hilton over the right side. The ball fluttered back into Hilton's hands, and Tannehill wrestled him down near midfield.

Tannehill's first pass (and the Titans' first play of the game) was intercepted by Bengals safety Jessie Bates. That led to an early field goal for Cincinnati.
Tennessee did get a three-and-out on the ensuing drive in the third quarter. But for an offense with an up-and-down performance so far on Saturday, Tannehill's second interception was the lowest valley.
