Titans vs. Dolphins 2012 score update: Tannehill throws two picks in second quarter, Tennessee up 24-3 at half

The Tennessee Titans didn't let off the gas after a strong first quarter, and they led 24-3 at halftime Sunday.

Linebacker Colin McCarthy made the big play of the second quarter, an interception of Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill returned 49 yards for a touchdown. Titans linebacker Akeem Ayers tipped the Tannehill pass, and McCarthy fielded it and ran 49 yards, diving in just across the pylon on the left sideline.

The Dolphins got on the board with a 40-yard Dan Carpenter field goal with 9:03 left in the second quarter. The score topped off a 10-play, 58-yard drive. At one point in the drive Miami had a first down at the Tennessee 28-yard line, but Richie Ingotnito was called for unnecessary roughness and flagged 15 yards.

With 1:51 until halftime, Ayers picked off Tannehill and returned it two yards to the Dolphins 14-yard line. Titans kicker Rob Bironas hit a 37-yard field goal to give Tennessee its 21-point lead with 27 seconds left in the half.
