The Bengals, led by QB Joe Burrow, have struggled to find their rhythm this season. Cincinnati’s reluctance to utilize RB Joe Mixon has raised questions. Tennessee is expected to have the upper hand in the ground game this Sunday, and they are primed for a bounce-back performance following a lackluster showing against the Browns. Our pick is Tennessee to secure the victory.
