The Cincinnati Bengals will travel south this Sunday for an important NFL Week 9 battle against the Tennessee Titans. Both the Bengals and the Titans need to pick up a victory to keep pace in their respective divisions.
The Bengals and Titans appear to be heading in opposite directions.
After a three-game winning streak, Tennessee is looking to rebound after losing two of their last three games, including an embarrassing 41-7 shellacking at the hands of the AFC South-leading Houston Texans in Week 7.
Conversely, the Bengals went a perfect 4-0 in the month of October. The Cincinnati offense is starting to gel consistently and the defense is holding the opposition to under 18 points per game. The young team plays as if they are one spirit, and their 5-2 record would be good enough for first place in most divisions.
The Titans are desperate, but the Bengals are confident. If Cincinnati wins five key match-ups, they will win this pivotal Week 9 showdown.
