Tennessee Titans vs Cincinnati Bengals: Preview and Odds
By Ravi Konjeti
The game is being played in Cincinnati in typical October conditions. The temperatures are expected to be in the low 40s making it the chilliest game that the Titans will have played to date.
With partly cloudy skies, Tennessee may not have to worry about rain or any precipitation. However, winds are supposed to be in the high teens, making a real impact on the kicking game. Given the struggles in special teams, look for Vrabel to stay aggressive in fourth-down situations.

Tennessee has a few players on the injury list. Most notably, A.J. Brown has missed practice again with a knee injury that has been hampering him all season long. Brown is expected to play and I would expect this to continue all year just to keep him fresh.
Kristian Fulton and Dane Cruikshank missed practice this week and they have been ruled out for Sunday’s contest. More defensive back news, Adoree’ Jackson has missed all season and after two days of full practice, he didn’t practice on Friday and his status remains up in the air.
The Bengals injury list is quite large as well. Running back Joe Mixon is still not practicing with a foot injury. If he is not ready to suit up, then the Bengals will be without a big weapon in the offense. Starting corner Darius Philips and wide receiver John Ross are also questionable to play on Sunday.
Most importantly, the Bengals will be without three of their starting linemen including their left tackle (and 2019 1st round pick) Jonah Williams and their center Trey Hopkins.
