How to Watch Cincinnati Bengals vs. Tennessee Titans Divisional Playoff Game

The NFL moves into the divisional round playoffs with the top seed from each conference hosting games on Saturday, and the No. 2 seeds from each conference hosting games on Sunday.

The action kicks off Saturday at 4:30 p.m. when the AFC's top seed, the Tennessee Titans, host the No. 4 seed Cincinnati Bengals, who completed a worst-to-first climb in the AFC North this season.

The Bengals knocked off the Las Vegas Raiders, 26-19, in the wild card round last weekend while the Titans had a first-round bye.

The Bengals are led by the amazing pass-catch duo of Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase. The Bengals have other solid receivers in Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd and a strong running game with Joe Mixon.

The Titans are led by quarterback Ryan Tannehill and receivers Julio Jones and A.J. Brown. Star running back Derrick Henry, who sat out much of the season with an injury, is expected to be back in the lineup Saturday afternoon for the Titans.

Temperatures will be chilly Saturday in Nashville with 36 degrees at kickoff and wind chills in the 20s.

The winner of this game advances to the AFC Championship on January 30 to face the winner of the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs, who play Sunday night in Kansas City.
