I realize they are at home to open the season, but I honestly can't believe Cincy is favored this weekend. Things are looking bleak for the Bengals I don't know if the Tennesse defense is going to be the squad that the horrid Cincy O gets healthy on. Two stats that make me cringe when thinking about this weekend's game....

Tennesse D - 7 sacks against a QB that is much more mobile than Carson Palmer.
Tennessee D - gave up 33 yards on 17 carries for a total of 1.9 ypc against a team that is better than the Bengals.

The Bengals offensive line is swiss cheese. I have a hard time believing that Perry will be able to get any open lanes to run. I'm even more concerned that Palmer will get killed this weekend when he drops back. Most here in Cincy are giving Palmer zero chance of getting through the season without an injury...most probably a concussion.

I'm not sure I even care about the offensive issues in Tenn. I've heard a lot of talk that the Titans are better off with Kerry Collins at QB anyway. I just don't know how Cincy is going to be able to get anything done offensively. Also, the whole Vince Young saga that's been going on, I think the Titans come out a little more motivated playing for their QB.

The rushing attack of White and Johnson will be too much for Cincy's rush defense, and Kerry Collins doesn't need to do much against a team Joe Flacco had success on. If Collins limits his mistakes, Tennessee has no problems winning.

Bengals on the other hand are a mess. No running game at all. Palmer is not the same QB he was 2 years ago. They have an injured Housmanzadeh whose not fully healthy and an unhappy Ocho Cinco.

Its going to be a LONG season for the Bengals.

Take the Titans +1
