Tennessee Titans' Ryan Tannehill throws a pass during playoff game against Bengals

The 7-3 Tennessee Titans will host the Cincinnati Bengals, who are 6-4, for a Sunday afternoon matchup at 1:00 p.m.

Both teams are on a two-game winning streak. The Bengals got the best of the Carolina Panthers and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Titans defeated the Denver Broncos and Green Bay Packers in their last two games.

The Bengals took care of their divisional rivals Steelers last weekend to split the season series by a score of 37-30. Joe Burrow threw for 355 yards and four touchdowns in the win. Samaje Perine caught three of those touchdown passes.

The Bengals sit just below the divisional leaders in the Baltimore Ravens.

The Titans beat the Packers on Thursday Night Football last week by a score of 27-17. The Titans' defense played well to prevent the Packers from scoring in both the second and fourth quarters. Ryan Tannehill threw for 333 yards and two touchdowns, completing 22 out of 27 pass attempts.

Let's look ahead at this matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Tennesee Titans on Sunday afternoon.

Odds

The Bengals are -1.5 point favorites on the road against the leaders of the AFC South. They have odds of (-113) at that spread.

For the moneyline, the Bengals and Titans have odds of (-127) and (+104) to win the game outright, respectively. 

Keys To The Game

The Bengals feed off of the energy of Joe Burrow. When he plays well, the Bengals score and give the defense the opportunity to get adequate rest on the sideline. During the playoffs last year, the Bengals relied heavily on Burrow to bring them to victory, and I expect that again on Sunday.

Another key that the Bengals have not utilized much this season will be Evan McPherson. He was the hero of that game last year in the playoffs, hitting the game-winning field goal. 

I expect the Bengals to need to utilize McPherson more in this game, as they will need to take advantage of any opportunity to get points on the road.

The big key for the Titans will be their defense. They are ranked eighth in the NFL in points given up per game at 18.5 and first in opponent third down conversion percentage at 30.15%. That should be a great matchup against the Bengals, who rank third in third down conversion percentage at 48.36%.

This game will come down to a drive or two, which could be decided on a few third downs. Whoever wins the third down battle will win this game, and the Titans are relying on their defense to disrupt Burrow and get the offense back on the field.
