The Cincinnati Bengals come into this game with a record of 6-4 on the season. Facing the Tennessee Titans won’t be an easy task, especially with Derrick Henry in the backfield. Still, the Bengals have one of the best offenses in the NFL and plan to use it this weekend. The question is, can they find a way to slow down Henry and the Titans running game?

The Tennessee Titans are trying to establish themselves as a top-tier unit. They have a record of 7-3, but still come into the game as underdogs. Playing at home gives them the added advantage and they’re coming off a win. They made easy work of the Green Bay Packers and have had plenty of time to rest. So, which of these teams is the best pick this weekend?

Bengals vs. Titans Preview, Trends and Stats

With one of the best offenses in the NFL, the Bengals will test their strength against the Titans. It’s not their offense that we’re actually worried about, however, it’s their defense. This season, the Bengals have allowed 21.5 points per game, ranking 15th in the NFL.

On offense, the Bengals average 26.5 points per game, ranking third in the NFL. With such a strong offensive presence, they’ll try to overwhelm the Titans early. Most of their success is through the passing game, putting up 271.3 yards per game.

Where they could do a lot better is in the running game, where they rank 28th in the NFL. By averaging just 95.1 yards per game, they could be in for a tough day. Still, they have two straight wins under their belt and they’re 3-0 against the Titans in their last three matches.

The Tennessee Titans have two straight wins under their belt coming into this game. They’re averaging 19.3 points per game, ranking 24th in the NFL. Though their offense hasn’t been the best this season, they’re definitely winning games.

Most of their success hinges on the back of running back Derrick Henry. Henry has amassed over a thousand yards this season and is looking to add more. He has been an unstoppable force this season and the Titans are 11th in the NFL in rushing yards per game.

Bengals vs. Titans Predictions

This game is likely to be a back-and-forth game between two different teams. The Titans focus on controlling the clock, while the Bengals are a high-scoring, fast-paced offense. This should definitely make for an entertaining game, but the question is, who will win?

Due to the Titans secondary struggling, we’re going to go with the Cincinnati Bengals. They’re only 1.5-point favorites here so they don’t have a large spread to cover. Take the Bengals on the road over the Titans this weekend.

Final Score: 24-20 (Bengals)

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Tennessee Titans Recap NOV 27TH 2022

Tee Higgins caught seven passes for 114 yards and scored the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter to lift the Cincinnati Bengals past the host Tennessee Titans 20-16 on Sunday in Nashville, Tenn.

Joe Burrow completed 22 of 37 passes for 270 yards for the Bengals (7-4) and Samaje Perine, who started at running back for the injured Joe Mixon, gained 93 yards from scrimmage (58 rushing, 35 passing) with a touchdown.

Bengals receiver Trenton Irwin made a fingertip catch on a low throw on third-and-12, extending a drive early in the fourth quarter. Higgins came down with a 27-yard touchdown catch on the next play to move Cincinnati ahead 20-13 with 13:42 remaining.

The Bengals held the Titans (7-4) to a 38-yard field goal on the ensuing drive before marching 59 yards in 12 plays to chew up most of the clock.

What would have been a Cincinnati field goal with almost two minutes left to play became an automatic first down when Titans defensive tackle Kevin Strong was whistled for a hit on Cincinnati's long snapper, considered a defenseless player during the snap.

With Tennessee out of timeouts, that allowed the Bengals to kneel three times and drain the rest of the clock. The Bengals won for the fifth time in six games, while Tennessee lost in regulation for the first time since Week 2.

The Titans' Ryan Tannehill finished 22 of 34 for 291 yards. Derrick Henry was held to 38 rushing yards on 17 carries but did have three receptions for 79 yards.

Tennessee got on the board first with a short drive resulting in Caleb Shudak's first NFL field goal, from 33 yards out, with 14:06 before halftime. The Bengals responded with Evan McPherson's 47-yard field goal 2 1/2 minutes later.

On the first play of the ensuing drive, Tannehill completed a short pass to Henry, who found a seam and navigated deep into Cincinnati's territory. A Bengals defender knocked the ball out around the 5, but it bounced into the end zone and Titans receiver Treylon Burks recovered it for a touchdown for a 10-3 lead.

The Bengals fit in a nine-play, 92-yard touchdown drive before halftime. Perine took a catch and run 32 yards on the first play of the drive. The Bengals converted two third downs to set up Perine's 7-yard scoring run with 1:55 left.

Shudak missed a 35-yarder wide right in the final seconds of the half. McPherson (38 yards) and Shudak (24) traded field goals in the third quarter to make it 13-13 headed into the fourth.

Bengals receiver Ja'Marr Chase (hip) was inactive and missed his fourth straight game after returning to practice during the week.
