The Cincinnati Bengals managed to get their first win this past Monday, and now they will look to get back to .500 going against the Tennessee Titans. These teams have met each of the last two seasons. The first time was the Bengals upsetting the Titans — who were the No. 1 seed in the AFC — and the other was a midseason victory that sent Tennessee spiraling.
Seriously though, in 2022, the Titans were 7-3 entering Week 12 and looking to exercise some demons by defeating the 6-4 Bengals. Not only did Tennessee go on to lose 20-16. They never won again that season.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati didn’t lose until the AFC Championship game.
However, that was then, and points don’t carry over. These teams are both hoping to reach 2-2 to get their seasons back on track. The Bengals saw quarterback Joe Burrow play through his calf injury to lead Cincinnati to a win.
The defense also smothered one of the hottest offenses in the league going into Week 3. The Titans are coming off getting whooped by the Cleveland Browns 27-3, where no aspect of the team looked good.
Which one of these teams will get that elusive second win?
