11 things to know for Titans-Bengals divisional-round matchup

SMG Logo By Mike Moraitis of SMG | Slide 1 of 11: When the Titans and Bengals meet on Saturday, this will be the 77th matchup (including playoffs) between these two franchises. The Titans own the all-time advantage with a 40-35-1 record. Their last meeting was in 2020, when the Bengals beat the Titans, 31-20, in Cincinnati — but a lot has changed since then. The Bengals are a team on the rise and look to have a very bright future, while the Titans' defense has vastly improved since Burrow shredded it last season. This will be the second playoff meeting between these two franchises. The last occurred in the 1990 playoffs, when Cincy topped the Houston Oilers, which was also the Bengals' last playoff victory before this year.
