The Bengals vs Titans live stream is coming up soon, and it will feature the AFC's top team getting even better!

The Bengals (10-7) picked up from where they left off in the regular season as they scored 20 first-half points and were able to ride that to a 26-19 win over the Raiders in the wild card round of the playoffs. Joe Burrow completed 24-of-his-34 passes including two touchdowns in his playoff debut while leading Cincinnati to their first playoff victory in 31 years.

Rookie wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase will look to continue his tear against the Titans. Chase took the Raiders for nine catches and 116 yards in the wild card win and now has three 100-yard-plus games in his last four contests.

The Titans (12-5) are the AFC’s number one seed coming into the playoffs and are coming off a first-round bye. That week of rest came with a great benefit as they will have Derrick Henry back in the lineup. The two-time rushing champion was well on his way to his third straight rushing title before his regular season was cut short after he suffered a foot-fracture in week eight. At the time of the injury, Henry was the NFL’s leading rusher and still managed to finish the season in the top 10 in rushing yards (937) and touchdowns (10). He was cleared for contact drills in practice this week.

Tennessee earned their number one seed after not just losing Henry, but also their leading receiver A.J. Brown. The 24-year-old suffered a chest injury November 21st and was placed on injured reserve. Brown was activated just three weeks later and promptly caught 11 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown in his first game back. He managed to haul in a team-high 869 yards on the season with five touchdowns.

The Titans are currently 4-point favorites against the Bengals. The over/under is 48.5. Bengals are currently a +175 money line bet.

Bengals vs Titans live streams in the US

In the U.S., the Bengals vs Titans live stream is going to be broadcast on CBS, which is available with most cable packages and on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV

The game starts at 4.30 p.m. ET / 1.30 p.m. PT Saturday (Jan. 22)

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.

Fubo.TV:a 7-day free trial

Fubo.TV: One of the best streaming services with FOX, and the top pick for watching all of the 2021 NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right network channels and the two cable channels you don't want to go without. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.

Paramount Plus

Paramount Plus combines what used to be CBS All Access with even more content from the deep ViacomCBS vault. Get access to Survivor and Big Brother episodes, as well as originals like Star Trek: Picard and The Good Fight. And more great stuff is on the way, including Frasier and Criminal Minds revivals.

NFL Sunday Ticket: This game is not included in NFL Sunday Ticket, which is available even if you don't have DirecTV. For more details check out our guide on How to get NFL Sunday Ticket without DirecTV.
