CINCINNATI (AP) - With All-Pro receiver A.J. Green watching again, Cincinnati's offense had an impressive first half in a 27-19 preseason victory over the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night.

Rookie running back Giovani Bernard carried seven times for 37 yards and a touchdown, and turned a short pass into a 22-yard gain, giving the Bengals (2-0) the diversity they're seeking out of the backfield.

After failing to score in the first quarter of a 34-10 win in Atlanta last week, the Bengals' starters piled up 220 yards in the first half. Andy Dalton was 9 of 14 for 115 yards, including a 2-yard touchdown pass.

The Titans (0-2) failed to get a touchdown out of their starting offense in the first half, and their kickers missed three consecutive field goals.
