Backs against the wall and pushing for their first win of season, the Cincinnati Bengals had one more chance to drive the ball downfield and tie the game.
They were derailed by rookie cornerback Trayvon Mullen, a Clemson product who is chasing wide receivers for the Oakland Raiders.
With about 90 seconds left in the game, Mullen made his first interception of the season and and sealed Oakland's 17-10 victory. The Raiders are now tied with Kansas City atop the AFC West.
In addition to his interception, Mullen posted five tackles. On the season, the second-round draft pick has 25 tackles and four passes defended.
