Should Tennessee Be A Bigger Favorite?
When it comes to the Titans, it’s usually easy to see if they’re a good matchup for an opposing team. They ran the ball on 48.63% of their total plays which was the second-most in the league. Cincinnati had the fifth-best rush defense in the NFL, meaning they could give Tennessee some issues.
Arguably the Titans’ biggest strength is their rush defense that allows the second-fewest rush yards per game. However, the Bengals are a rather balanced offense that relies more on their passing game anyway.
This game seems to favor the Bengals in terms of a matchup, but the Titans have proven to be dominant this season, especially when leading in the game as they’re able to chew the clock and limit the opposition’s opportunities. Whoever is able to get an early lead immediately gets a big advantage as it'll change the way both teams attack on the offensive end.
