Bengals vs. Titans key players to watch

Cincinnati Bengals

Joe Burrow: Whether it's his calf injury or just a slow start to the season, Joe Burrow needs to pick things up if the Bengals want any hope of being a contender this season. Through his first three starts, he has completed just 55.4% of passes for a quarterback rating of 66.2. Everyone is waiting for him to look like the player who was the MVP favorite before the season began.

Tennessee Titans

Derrick Henry: The Titans star running back has looked like he has lost a step this season, averaging a measly 3.2 yards per carry through his first three games. If the Titans offense wants to get going, they need to either hope Ryan Tannehill steps up in the passing game, or Henry gets going in the running game.

Bengals vs. Titans prediction and pick

I'll be honest. I don't trust either offense in this game. Joe Burrow has looked like a shell of his former self and the Derrick Henry has struggled to get going for the Titans. So, I'm going to make the obvious play in this one and bet the UNDER instead.

In fact, these two teams rank in the bottom four in yards per play this season. The Titans come in at 29th, gaining just 4.3 yards per play, while the Bengals are dead last, averaging just 4.0 yards per play.

Sure, either offense may bounce back this week, but I'm not going to wager on that happening. Give me the UNDER 40.5.
