Cincinnati Bengals vs. Tennessee Titans ‘Best Bet’

The Tennessee Titans (12-5) may have homefield advantage but they are not the team of last year. The Cincinnati Bengals (10-7) are hot and have the quarterback with arguably the hottest hand in the NFL with QB Joe Burrow at the helm.

This Bengals offense is explosive and the Titans defense has not done a good job against those type of schemes this season. This isn’t a nice day in the sun to be tackled on the field but its as good as it can be for a Saturday afternoon in January. Derrick Henry is back but how healthy is he after missing extended time. Henry has also been bottled up more this season. This Bengals defense is 7th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game.

We have on the other hand Bengals RB Joe Mixon expected to receive a lot of the carries on the ground and nobody seems to care he broke 1,000 yards rushing this season. You shouldn’t discount Bengals top receivers Tee Higgins and Ja’Marr Chase moving the chains against a spotty Titans secondary.

I wanted a reason to root for an underdog and by golly I have one.
