The Cincinnati Bengals won a playoff game for the first time in 31 years and they’ll now take part in the AFC Divisional Round for the first time since Jan. 13, 1991. It’s been a long time coming for this team and the fan base and they definitely have what it takes to win this game and get to the AFC title game for the first time since Jan. 8, 1989.

With all of the divisional winners taking care of business in their games, the Bengals will head to Nashville for a date with the No. 1 seeded Tennessee Titans. Some might say the Titans aren’t an impressive No. 1 seed but they got the seed, didn’t they? Even more impressive, they got the top seed without Derrick Henry for the last half of the season.

No team should be taken lightly, especially in the playoffs. The Bengals might have gotten the less difficult divisional round, as the other game taking place in the AFC is Kansas City vs. Buffalo. That’s going to be a headbanger for sure.

This game should also be pretty fun though. Henry is returning to the Titans just as Cincy lost Larry Ogunjobi to the IR. Not great.

Bengals vs Titans Prediction Divisional Round Game

I’m not surprised to see the Titans favored considering they’re the home team and had a BYE week to rest up last week. Meanwhile, the Bengals’ d-line got dinged up and the timing there couldn’t be worse with the loss of Ogunjobi likely for the season.

The Titans might be the “least impressive” No. 1 seed in quite some time but they got there. When Henry went down, they continued to win big games and got the top seed in the AFC, gifting them home-field advantage in the playoffs.

If the Bengals go into Nashville and take down the Titans, they’ll then go to either Kansas City or Buffalo for the AFC Championship Game.

I say walk before you can run though. This game is going to be tough, especially with Ogunjobi out and the d-line banged up. I hate to go with the bad guys here, but I’m picking the Titans to win it 30-24. Sorry, Bengals fans.
