What the Tennessee Titans must do
As hard as it may be for some Tennessee Titans fans to believe, the Cincinnati Bengals do present a real challenge this weekend.
Sure, for the better part of two decades the Cincinnati Bengals have been the little brother in the AFC North behind the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, but all of those top-10 picks they earned are starting to turn this team around.
Joe Burrow is a favorite to win the Comeback Player of the Year award after the quarterback stepped up following his ACL tear in his rookie year. With a trio of immensely talented receivers, his life has become a lot easier in his second year.
While the image of the Houston Texans second-half surge is still fresh in the minds of fans, Tennessee Titans fans need to realize that the skill position players for the Cincinnati Bengals are much more dangerous.
Historically though, the more dangerous the opposing team is the better the Tennessee Titans play. This is a Titans team that has lived on rising to the occasion vs playoff-caliber teams and despite their seven losses on the season, the Bengals are a team that earned their playoff spot.
So what do the Titans have to do to make sure that they don’t allow an upset at home?
