Bengals vs Titans Prediction: Can the Titans tame the Bengals?

Sweatpants Jesus

The Cincinnati Bengals travel to Nashville to take on the Tennessee Titans in a playoff rematch from last season.

The Bengals bounced the Number 1 seed Titans last season in the divisional round, on their way to their improbable Super Bowl run.

A lot has happened since that day in January earlier this year but this one should be just as drama-filled.

The Bengals have won 4 of their last 5 games and sit currently at 6-4.

The Bengals pulled away from the Steelers on the road last week, getting the win 37-30.

While they got the win, star RB Joe Mixon was knocked out of the game with a concussion and he is in the protocol ahead of this game.

Samaje Perine filled in wonderfully, racking up 80 total yards and 3 TDs.

The Bengals have also been without star wideout Ja’Maar Chase for the past 4 weeks, but he could be back this week depending on how he responds to practice.

Lots of question marks on offense for the Bengals so it will be interesting to monitor their practice news as the week progresses.

On the other side, the Titans are coming off of maybe their most impressive win all season, a 27-17 thumping of the Packers at Lambeau Field.

Derrick Henry has been awesome again this season, leading the league in rushing with 1,010 yards, but the past 2 games, the Titans have won on offense with the arm of QB Ryan Tannehill.

Tannehill has been great since coming back from injury 2 weeks ago.

The Tennessee offense has been electric the past 2 weeks through the air, which creates huge problems for defenses who have to gear up to stop Derrick Henry.

If the Titans can continue to but the ball in the air like this moving forward, they could make legitimate noise the rest of the way and possibly deep in the playoffs.

In a rematch of the 2021 AFC Divional Round playoff game, who will come out on top this year and further solidify their place in the AFC playoff picture?

Prediction

Well, before I give my pick, if this is your first time reading one of my pieces, I have to be honest.

I am a Tennessee Titans fan.

So take that into consideration but I also only bet on the Titans when I truly think they win or cover.

And this Sunday, I think they cover, and most likely win.

The offensive explosion has been great to see from a Tennessee perspective the past 2 weeks but I am going Titans here because of the defense.

The Titans have been playing elite level defense the past 6 weeks and I expect that to be a huge factor in this one.

I am riding with the Titans, at home, to keep this one close and probably win outright.

Best Bet

Titans +2.5 (-114)
