Titans Vs Bills : Live Stats, Highlights
The Tennessee Titans struggled offensively in the first half, but thanks to a few big plays, they’re still in the game, behind the Buffalo Bills 20-17 at halftime.
Tennessee’s Derrick Henry made the game’s greatest play, busting off a 76-yard touchdown run after the Titans had only gained 29 yards on their first three drives. On the following possession, Buffalo responded with a touchdown drive of their own, and then things started to get crazy.
Despite being sacked and the ball rebounding off Micah Hyde’s helmet and into the air, Julio Jones grabbed a great throw down the field. Following that sequence, a Titans field goal was kicked, and a Josh Allen throw was tipped and intercepted by Kevin Byard. Tennessee’s next possession culminated with a touchdown run by Ryan Tannehill, putting Tennessee in front. The Bills then scored on their final possession of the half, going 75 yards for a touchdown on a third-and-13 play just outside the red zone, with Cole Beasley finding himself wide open in the end zone.
Buffalo appears to be the greatest club in the league this season, boasting a top-six offensive (410.4 yards per game) as well as the league’s best defense (251.8 yards per game). Cleveland is the next-closest team in that statistic, allowing 307.7 yards per game.
Buffalo is on a roll, thanks to quarterback Josh Allen, who has 288 rushing yards and two touchdowns to go along with his 1,370 passing yards and 12 touchdowns. Meanwhile, the defense has forced a league-high 15 turnovers this season, resulting in a plus-11 differential.
The Titans, though, claim the most recent victory in this series, defeating the Bills 42-26 in 2020. They held eventual 2,000-yard runner Derrick Henry to just 57 yards in that matchup, though he did produce a highlight-reel play when he stiff-armed Josh Norman into oblivion. How will Henry fare versus Buffalo in 2021, when he leads the league in carries (142), yards (640), and rushing touchdowns (seven).
