TITANS-BENGALS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Andy Dalton caught a touchdown pass -- the first Bengals quarterback to pull off that feat -- as Cincinnati stayed undefeated on Sunday, beating Tennessee 33-7 a few hours after the Titans got sad news.

The Bengals (3-0) head into their bye week with their best start in eight years.

A few hours before kickoff, the Titans (1-2) learned that kicker Rob Bironas had died overnight in a one-car crash in Nashville. He'd been released in March after his ninth season with Tennessee.

The Titans committed a safety for holding in the end zone on a punt, missed two field goal attempts, snapped the ball before Jake Locker was ready in shotgun formation, and whiffed on the game's defining play. Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson let Dalton catch Mohamed Sanu's pass and go 18 yards for a score.

RAVENS-BROWNS

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Justin Tucker kicked a 32-yard field as time expired, giving the Baltimore Ravens a 23-21 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Tucker's boot capped another challenging week for the Ravens (2-1), who continue to be dogged by questions surrounding running back Ray Rice's domestic violence suspension.

Joe Flacco set up Tucker's game-winner with a 32-yard pass to Steve Smith with 1:28 left. The Ravens then ran the clock down before bringing in Tucker, who split the uprights and sent the Browns (1-2) to another tough loss. Both of Cleveland's losses have come on last-play field goals.

Flacco finished 19 of 31 for 217 yards with one touchdown.

Cleveland's Brian Hoyer completed 19 of 25 passes for 290 yards. The Browns failed to capitalize on several chances to put the Ravens away in the second half. Cleveland missed a field goal and had one blocked.

BROWNS-MANZIEL FAKE PLAY

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel fooled Baltimore's defense with a trick play, but had his big gain called back by a penalty.

After replacing starter Brian Hoyer and handing off, Manziel ran toward the sideline acting as if he was leaving the field. He paused near the sideline and pretended to have an animated conversation with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan when the ball was snapped.

Manziel then caught a short pass from Hoyer and sprinted down Cleveland's sideline before he was shoved out of bounds.

The play worked to perfection but Browns rookie running back Terrance West was called for an illegal shift, negating the 39-yard pickup.

Manziel made his NFL debut last week against New Orleans, and the Browns are keeping a package of plays for him.

INDIANS-TWINS

Kluber strikes out 14; Indians beat Twins 7-2

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Corey Kluber struck out a career-high 14 hitters for the second straight start and the Cleveland Indians didn't lose any ground in the playoff chase Sunday with a 7-2 win over the Minnesota Twins.

Michael Bourn and Michael Brantley each had three hits for the Indians, who have won five of six.

Cleveland began the day 3 1-2 games behind Kansas City for the second Wild Card spot, and is home to the Royals for three-plus games beginning Monday. In addition to Monday's regularly scheduled game, the teams must complete the Aug. 31 game in Kansas City that was suspended in the middle of the 10th inning due to rain with Cleveland up 4-2.

Chris Herrmann and Danny Santana drove in the Minnesota runs.

The chance to score was rare against Kluber (17-9), who allowed seven hits in eight innings to win his fourth straight start.
