NFL Playoffs: Bengals at Titans (3:30 CT) — Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Bears

A week after Joe Burrow and the Bengals ended a 31-year playoff victory drought for Cincinnati, the Bengals have to head to Nashville to take on the top-seeded Tennessee Titans in the AFC Divisional Round. Tennessee will have some added firepower today as Derrick Henry will start at running back for the Titans, making his return from a broken foot suffered in Week 8.

The Bengals are fourth against the run this season, but Derrick Henry is a whole different beast if he’s truly 100 percent. While Tennessee will have Derrick Henry back today, the Bengals passing game is among the best in the league and they’ve been clicking on all cylinders for some time now. Can Tennessee find a way to stop Cincy’s high-powered passing attack? I think that will be the biggest storyline today.
