A sea of orange has invaded Nashville ahead of Saturday afternoon's Bengals-Titans game.

The Bengals officially broke their playoff curse last Saturday by beating the Raiders in the Wild Card round. They'll try and keep the magic alive this evening in Nashville.

Bengals fans have come out in full force to cheer their team on against the one-seed Titans. There are so many Cincinnati fans there it appears Tennessee may not even have home-field advantage.

Take a look.

The Bengals are well aware they won't be able to stop Derrick Henry from getting big yardage this afternoon. Slowing down Ryan Tannehill, on the other hand, is plausible.

Zac Taylor has tremendous respect for the veteran quarterback.

I had a tremendous eight years being around Ryan Tannehill,” Taylor said, via Mike Organ of the Tennesseean. “I’ve probably got a stronger library of all the throws, all the catches, all the runs he had over those eight years than maybe he does because as a coach you’re watching all those cutups all the time.

“... He’s a tremendous quarterback and it’s no surprise he’s helped that team be in the position they’ve been in the last couple of years. He executes that offense at a high level and he can make a defense pay if you let him.”

The Titans host the Bengals today at 4:30 p.m. ET.
