Bruising Bengals Send Physical Message In Win Over Titans
Because he led the Who-Dey chant last week when the Bengals celebrated a win in Pittsburgh, Irwin got to choose the player to do it in Nissan Stadium after the Bengals replicated last year's grimy and gorgeous win in the playoffs here with a win that put them squarely in this year's playoff picture as the co-leaders in the AFC North. After the Bengals had pushed back on Tennessee's second-ranked run defense with 108 yards and allowed its league-leading pressure just one sack of quarterback Joe Burrow, Irwin chose the most experienced offensive lineman in right tackle La'el Collins.

The Titans are known as perhaps the most physical team in the league. They are keyed by the power running of Derrick Henry and a defense that can attack the quarterback. But Sunday, the Bengals limited Henry to 38 yards on 17 carries and the Titans had one sack. Burrow threw for 270 yards, one touchdown and no picks, but he also ran nine times for 32 yards.

The Bengals went to Nashville and took out the Titans without the assistance of Joe Mixon (concussion) or Ja'Marr Chase (hip). It's the surest sign yet the defending AFC champions have found their way as the most difficult portion of the schedule arrives. "This is the kind of game that great teams win," said Joe Burrow, who threw for 270 yards and the go-ahead score to Tee Higgins early in the fourth quarter. Burrow, sacked nine times by a fearsome Tennessee pass rush in Cincinnati's Divisional Round win in January, was sacked just once on Sunday. And now the best news for Burrow: NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Chase is on target to return for Week 13's showdown with the Chiefs.
