The Titans are the AFC mystery Team. They win differently every week. Can the Bengals find the answer?
Five keys to the game for when the Bengals play the Titans this weekend.
Bengals vs TitansDivisonal Playoff
After putting up 11 TD vs 0 picks over his last 4 regular season games Burrows dropped 244 yds, 2 TD, 7.2 YPA, and a 110.4 QBR on the Raiders who had no answer for the Bengals offense. He's the hottest QB in the NFL.
Ryan Tannehill will hurt you with his legs as well as his arm. 3.1 attempts per game and 7 TDs on the season. But if AJ Brown is open, he will chuck it in a hurry! He has a 100+ QBR over his last 3 games. He can play.

67 rec, 828 yds, 5 TD.
74 rec, 1,091 yds, 6 TD.

Keeping Brown healthy is an issue. But he is as healthy as he's been all season right now and that is a huge problem for any defense. Tannehill doesn't throw picks but he does throw at Brown. A lot.
The one-shot the Titans have of slowing down the Bengals' offense is pressure on the QB which the Bengals give up. They do have the horses to pull that wagon. Landry, Autry, & Bud Dupree are the real deal.

The Titans' pass defense is bad vs WR production. They are tied for 31st for Receptions Allowed, Yards Allowed, and 28th for TD's Allowed AND 27th for 20+ yard Pass Plays Allowed.
Titans Running Game
Will Derrick Henry play? He hasn't played since week 8 but yeah, he is all that and changes everything if he suits up as Bengals are not good versus the run. Nobody runs more than the Titans.
Burrow to Chase connection.
Last week Chase had 12 targets. He delivered 9 receptions and 116 yards when every player in the stadium knew he was getting the rock. These two connect in the 4th dimension. Unstoppable.
