The Titans are looking at a huge boost with the return of RB Derrick Henry, who was the NFL rushing leader when he was injured in Week 8. He had 937 yards and 10 TDs and was on pace for a second straight 2,000-yard season. D'Onta Foreman (566 yards) and a defense that allows less than 21 points per game kept the team rolling in his absence. Tennessee averages 141.4 rushing yards per game (fifth in NFL), and QB Ryan Tannehill has seven TD passes and no interceptions in the past three games.
Cincinnati quarterback Joe Burrow threw for 4,611 yards and 34 TDs during the season, while rookie wideout Ja'Marr Chase had 1,455 yards (18 per catch) and 13 TDs. They hooked up nine times for 116 yards in last week's win against Las Vegas. Running back Joe Mixon had more than 1,500 total yards in the regular season. The Bengals' defense ranks fifth against the run (102.5 ypg).
