The Buffalo Bills head to Nissan Stadium in Nashville to face off against the Tennessee Titans in a game between two streaking AFC teams. Buffalo is sitting at a cool 4-0, 1st in the AFC East. Bills QB Josh Allen is turning heads during this MVP caliber season, and the addition of wide receiver Stefon Diggs has made the Bills’ offense beyond competent.
Tennessee on the other hand has had a tumultuous start to their season after violating the NFL’s COVID-19 guidelines. The Titans have already had one game postponed, and with positive tests popping up daily Tennessee just wants to get a game in.
Bills Rolling Heading Into Week 5
The Bills are atop the AFC East at 4-0, and have so far posted one of the best offenses in the entire NFL through four weeks. Allen has been on a roll lately, defeating the Jets, Dolphins, Rams, and Raiders. Two of those squads are less-than-playoff caliber, but the Bills perfect start is still impressive.
Buffalo has a great chance to push their record to 5-0 heading into the game against the heavily-scrutinized Titans. Tennessee has been at the forefront of media concerns revolving around last week’s postponed game against Pittsburgh and reports of multiple Titans players breaking quarantine protocols.
The Bills still have to contend with Titans RB Derrick Henry though. The former Alabana running back is up against a Bills team allowing 101 yards per game on the ground. Buffalo hasn’t yet faced a running back like Henry, or an offensive line like Tennessee’s just yet.
Titans In Hot Water Heading Into Week 5
After their game against Pittsburgh was postponed due to positive COVID-19 cases, the NFL decided to look into the procedures surrounding the players safety in the Titans organization. Their investigation led to the discovery of the Titans organization bypassing the guidelines set in place by the NFL. This circumventing of the rules was an “open secret” around the league and it’s coming back to bite the Titans at the wrong time.
Tennessee was looking like a frontrunner in the AFC. Mike Vrabel’s team has started off undefeated despite some close wins early on in the season. If Tennessee is allowed to play this weekend, they’ll get to really test the resiliency of their coverage group.
Two Teams Hot For Different Reasons
On Sunday you’ll have to trust the team that has been consistently great on offense and has fought back from deficits, that team being the Bills. We still haven’t found out how the NFL plans to punish the Titans, but even if they play they could be missing a large part of their offense in wide receiver A.J. Brown.
Shortcomings on offense don’t work well against the Bills, because of how quickly and easily they can move downfield. Trust the boys in Buffalo to get the job done, in the event they actually play.
