Both the Tennessee Titans and the Cincinnati Bengals will look to give their young quarterbacks some reps for the 2013 season when they clash this Saturday at 7 PM ET at Paul Brown Stadium.
The Titans lost to the Redskins last week, but they looked good in some moments, especially their offensive line and runner Chris Johnson. The O-line is their best assets and they will try to prove it against one of the best defensive lines in the game this Saturday.
Tennessee has high expectations for the second-round draft pick Justin Hunter, who’s faster than most as he was a track and field athlete.
“I can’t wait until Justin Hunter realizes that he is a star,” strong safety Bernard Pollard said, via The Tennessean. “It is out of control how good that guy could be.”
“When Justin realizes he can go in there and single-handedly destroy a defense, I think this team is going to be in for something,” Pollard added. “And we need Justin Hunter to perform now, we can’t wait. Because we are chasing that Lombardi Trophy and he’s the kind of guy who could help us get it.”
The Bengals are waiting to see of wide out AJ Green can stay healthy in practice. He won’t play against the Titans. “I am back to 100 percent,” Green said, via The AP. “They just don’t want to throw me back just like this. As the days go on, I am going to work my way back into them.”
The Bengals are 3 point favorites for this game. Titans coach Mike Munchak is 6-3 in the preseason and Marvin Lewis is 21-21.
