In a game postponed to a Tuesday contest, the battle of the unbeaten Titans and Bills ended with the Titans on top in dominant fashion, defeating the Bills 42-16. With Tennessee not playing a game in sixteen days, there was some rust expected from the Titans on Tuesday, however, the rust appeared to be firmly on the Bills, who committed three turnovers during the game.
Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 21 of 28 passes for 195 yards and three touchdowns, while adding 42 yards on the ground along with a touchdown. Derrick Henry rushed 19 times for 57 yards with two touchdowns, leading the Titans rushing attack in the process. Jeremy McNichols added to the Titans rushing game, carrying the ball nine times for 28 yards. A.J. Brown led the Titans receiving corps, reeling in seven receptions for 82 yards and touchdown, while Jonnu Smith caught five receptions for 40 yards and two scores. Ryan Tannehill continues to prove week to week that quarterbacks in the league can win, and be productive, without putting up 300 passing yards a game. On the defensive side of the ball, Malcolm Butler was able to pick off Josh Allen twice on the day, while Rashaan Evans led the Titans in tackles with nine.
While the Bills and Josh Allen have proven they are indeed contenders in the AFC East, they did not appear to be the Bills we have seen during the first few weeks of the season. In the end, turnovers cost the Bills a chance to win and remain undefeated. Josh Allen completed 26 of 41 passes for 263 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. The Bills rushing attack was held ineffective on the day, with running backs T.J. Yeldon and Devin Singletary combining for 18 carries for 77 yards and no touchdowns. Stefon Diggs continued to be Josh Allen’s prime target, catching 10 passes for 106 yards on the day, but was not able to find the end zone. Gabriel Davis and Cole Beasley added to the Bills wide receiver efforts with five and six catches for 58 and 53 yards receiving respectively.
The Titans will host the 1-4 Houston Texans as they continue to remain undefeated, while the Buffalo Bills will host the 4-1 and defending Superbowl champion Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.
