Cincinnati Bengals Strengths:
The Bengals have a top 5 defense and are playing against an offense that has struggled with injuries the past few years. The Bengals offense seems to feed off the energy at Paul Brown Stadium and find ways to win battles against good defenses, Titans were the 14th ranked defense in 2013.
Tennessee Titans Strengths:
The Titans have a top 15 defense just missed being a top 10 pass defense. They can create turnovers and win battles against good receivers. They are consistently a threat to the AFC Central, almost as if they were still a part of the division. Their offense can be good at times and, if healthy, could pose a solid threat to this strong Bengals defense
Cincinnati Bengals Weaknesses:
The Bengals must not play just to get to the Week 4 Bye Week. They will have to focus and take a one week at a time mentality in order to make sure this doesn’t slip through their fingers.
Tennessee Titans Weaknesses:
The Titans must remain healthy. The draft upgraded the offensive line and running back situation, but a young group must remain strong and limit mistakes.
Cincinnati Bengals Keys:
This defense must exploit this young offensive talent and win the turnover battle.
Tennessee Titans Keys:
Injury Free and Healthy Role Players are a must. The defense needs to keep this receiving core at bay and limit the run.
Bengals are too good and too talented to let this game slip through their fingers, especially at home. Bengals win 27-10 to improve to 2-1.
