We've got more Cincinnati Bengals action coming this weekend. CAN YOU HANDLE IT?
Last Saturday, the Bengals beat the Las Vegas Raiders 26-19 to take the AFC Wild Card. It was the team's first playoff game in 31 years, and Cincinnati won right here on home turf. WHO DEY.
But the fun isn't over just yet. The Bengals will take on the Tennessee Titans this Saturday, Jan. 22, in the AFC Divisional round. The game will be played in Nashville at 4:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on CBS and Paramount+.
NFL statisticians put the Bengals' odds to win the conference at +500, while their shot at becoming Super Bowl champs is +1500.

Experts are saying the game between the Bengals and the Titans will be fairly balanced. The Bengals' Geoff Hobson writes:
The Bengals offense, tied for seventh in scoring, plays a scoring defense ranked sixth. Cincinnati's defense, ranked 17th in scoring, plays a Titans offense ranked at No. 15. The Bengals have a stingy run defense, too, ranked fifth, and tees it up against a Tennessee running game that is also ranked fifth despite the loss of Henry.After last week's AFC Wild Card Win, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow became an internet star/meme, thanks to his distinctive sunglasses. Cincy Shirts has commemorated the look with a new shirt design.
Turnovers? The Bengals have forced 21 and the Titans 22, but Cincinnati is tied for 16th in the NFL with an even plus-minus differential and Tennessee is tied for 20th at minus-three.
