NFL Game Previews: Bills-Titans Matchups

This article is part of our NFL Game Previews series.

Buffalo at Tennessee (+5.5), o/u 54.5 – Monday, 8:15 p.m. EDT

Last week's win over Kansas City was a big statement game for the Bills, as much for how they won it as the fact that they did it at all. The game wasn't particularly close — this wasn't a nail-biter with Josh Allen leading a triumphant late drive or anything. Buffalo stomped all over last year's AFC champs, and aside from Patrick Mahomes always being capable of something ridiculous, the game was basically over at halftime. That's why expecting some sort of letdown seems like wishful thinking. The Bills didn't treat last week's clash as a big deal, and beat up K.C. the same way they did Houston or Washington. They have the best defense, and maybe the best offense, and the gap between them and everyone else in the conference seems very wide. The Titans also lead their division, but that's mainly due to them being the only team in the AFC South with more than one win. I mean, they lost to the Jets. This is not a squad firing on all cylinders. Still, Derrick Henry seems unstoppable, so if Tennessee can get its passing game figured out and get any kind of consistent effort from its defense, they're a credible playoff contender. Again, though, getting those areas straightened out will probably need to be done against a different opponent.
