Bengals vs Titans: times, TV and how to watch online
The Bengals are perhaps the surprise package of season, but can they put a stop to the Titans who are the No. 1 seed coming into the game.
The 2022 NFL Playoffs are in full swing as we head into the Divisional Round, starting with the Cincinnati Bengals against the Tennessee Titans at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday January 22nd.
Can the Titans deal with the Bengals' bite?
Just a week ago the Cincinnati Bengals put down the Las Vegas Raiders in their season finale 26-19. With that win they brought to an end a 31-year old playoff losing streak, that is to say the longest stretch without a win in the postseason in the NFL. Indeed the last time the Bengals made a playoff was back in 1991. Of course this isn't to say that the Bengals are potentially overawed by the moment, not at all. In their victory over the Raiders, quarterback Joe Burrow went 24-of-34 for passing with 244 yards and two touchdowns. WR Ja’Marr Chase had nine catches for 116 yards and three carries for 23 yards in the romp. Then there was also TE C.J.Uzomah who made six catches for 63 yards and a touchdown. The Bengals are a well oiled machine at the moment, Titans be warned.
On the other side of the divide you have Ryan Tannehill and the No. 1 seed Tennessee Titans. Having won themselves a bye week - literally - courtesy of their 12-5 regular-season record, the Titans were afforded more time rest and to plan, but also to tend to their recovering star running back Derrick Henry. In the early stages of the season it was Henry who rushed for 937 yards with 10 touchdowns - in eight games - before having to go under the knife to correct a foot injury. In total Henry has 237 touches for 1,091 yards from scrimmage in 2021 i.e. his importance can't be overstated. Should he be available, which has be reported as a possibility then expect the Titans to take it to the Bengals.
