It’s been a year of resurgence for the Cincinnati Bengals and a year of survival for the Tennessee Titans. Still, both teams managed to win their divisions and will go head to head in the 2022 NFL playoffs on Saturday. The Titans are the No. 1 seed in the NFL playoff bracket despite spending more than half the year without star running back Derrick Henry, while the Bengals rode a dynamic offense to an AFC North title. Tennessee activated Henry off IR this week. You can stream the game on Paramount+.
Kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. ET from Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tenn.

AFC Wild Card picks for Bengals vs. Titans
Before you tune in to Saturday’s Titans vs. Bengals game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,500 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters the divisional round of the 2021 NFL playoffs on an incredible 137-97 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. Amazingly, it hasn’t missed a top-rated pick since Week 14 of the regular season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For Titans vs. Bengals, the model is backing Cincinnati (+3.5) to stay within the spread on the road. Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow led the NFL with a 70.4 percent completion rate and threw for 4,611 yards and 34 touchdowns. He also led the NFL in yards per pass attempt (8.9) and adjusted yards per pass attempt (9.0). A dynamic passing attack isn’t an ideal matchup for a Titans secondary that has been the franchise’s Achilles’ heel in recent seasons.
The Titans rank 25th in pass defense. Defending against an offense with weapons like Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd, C.J. Uzomah and Joe Mixon could be a serious problem. The model is projecting that Burrow throws for 261 yards and two touchdowns, helping the Bengals cover in over 50 percent of simulations.
