Every division winner won their Wild Card game last week while the Titans enjoyed their week off but now it’s down to those four division winners and the Bengals honestly might have gotten the best deal out of it. They’ll face a questionable No. 1 seeded Titans squad while the Chiefs and Bills will square off in the other AFC playoff game.
Tennessee might not be the most impressive No. 1 seed there’s been but they got the spot and that shows they’re deserving. Even more impressive is that the Titans got to where they are without Derrick Henry for half of the season. Pretty astounding when you think about it.
The Bengals narrowly held onto a 26-19 victory against the Raiders in the Wild Card round and that playoff monkey is off their backs. Can they keep their season alive?
Bengals Injury Report vs. Titans Divisional Round
The following players have been ruled as QUESTIONABLE:
WR Stanley Morgan
Trey Hendrickson Injury Update
The Cincinnati pass rush suffered a deadly blow when Trey Hendrickson went down in the third quarter of the Wild Card game and did not return to the field. Despite the injury, he practiced throughout the week and is playing.
This is massive for the defense as the pass rush couldn’t get any kind of pressure on Derek Carr after Hendrickson left the game. They’ll need him to keep Ryan Tannehill from having a big game.
Bengals vs Titans Odds, Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick Divisional Round\
WynnBET has Cincinnati as 3.5-point underdogs with a moneyline of +152 while Tennessee has a moneyline of -185. The over/under is set at 47.0 points.
The Titans might not be the most impressive No. 1 seed but they got the top seed and it’s tough to pick against the team with home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. With Larry Ogunjobi’s injury, the Cincy defensive line will have its work cut out for them when it comes to stopping Derrick Henry and the Tennessee rushing attack.
This game will be close but unfortunately, I’m going with a Titans victory, as they’ll win it 28-24.
