I already know YOUR answer, now here’s mine...

In the second quarter of the Monday Night Football tilt between the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans, Derrick Henry broke through the Buffalo Bills’ defense for a...well, you know the rest if you’re here. The play soon drew the ire of Bills fans thanks to a missed holding call (allegedly). In the days since, additional no-calls have been perceived.

Now the stuff of legends, no fewer than 42 missed...

Buffalo Bills vs. Tennessee Titans: Rookie review

Jon Durr-USA TODAY Sports

Rousseau largely invisible, Brown headed in the wrong direction

The Buffalo Bills’ defense lost the physicality battle and the offense wasn’t able to seal the deal against the Tennessee Titans for the second straight year, as the team lost 34-31. Derrick Henry ran roughshod over the previously solid rush defense, and Ryan Tannehill benefitted from all the attention being placed on his running back to take advantage of soft coverages. Meanwhile, the...

The Bills made some plays, just not enough to pull out a victory

The Buffalo Bills traveled to Nashville and were unable to defeat the Tennessee Titans on Monday night, losing 34-31 in crushing fashion. The Bills had a fourth down from Tennessee’s three-yard line, but quarterback Josh Allen was unable to convert a quarterback sneak.

While the Bills were in position to win for most of the night, they were unable to capitalize on many of those...

It was a good night for the home team

The Tennessee Titans defeated the Buffalo Bills on Monday night, gutting out a 34-31 win by stopping Buffalo on fourth down with just 18 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for us, all five of our Titans to watch had big games on Monday Night Football.

Here’s how our focal points of the opposition performed in victory.

QB Ryan Tannehill

For much of the game, Tannehill was horrendous. In the first...

Bills score 31 and lose for first time under Sean McDermott

Steve Roberts-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time under head coach Sean McDermott, the Buffalo Bills scored 31 points on offense and still lost a game. Typically speaking, it means your defense had a rotten day and the defenses under McDermott and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier have been good most of the time.

Monday’s 34-31 loss is the first time since 2016 that Buffalo scored 31 points on offense and still lost the game. It happened twice in 2016 and twice in 2015 under...

How awful

Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll coached again with a heavy heart on Monday Night Football. Just weeks after losing his grandmother, Daboll’s grandfather passed away over the weekend. Daboll found out just before or during the flight to Tennessee on Sunday.

“Yeah unfortunate news,” said head coach Sean McDermott after the game. “Brian’s been through a lot over the last two or three weeks here and so our prayers and...

The Bills dropped a game to Tennessee and now they drop in the power rankings

The Buffalo Bills had plenty of chances to beat the Tennessee Titans on Monday night, but the Titans had an answer for everything Buffalo tried, pulling out a gritty 34-31 victory in primetime. Entering the week, Buffalo was a presumptive favorite in the AFC. Now, at least according to the power rankings, the Bills have fallen to the second tier of the conference.

It was close, but no cigar!

In this episode, we discuss the Buffalo Bills’ loss to the Tennessee Titans, 34-31 in the last seconds of the game on a fourth-down call that didn’t go the Bills’ way. Was it the right call?

Dawson Knox has hand surgery, out “a few weeks”

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

The tight end broke his hand in the Titans loss.

When Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox threw a pass on a trick play Monday night, he did so with a broken bone in his hand. He broke the bone earlier in the quarter, falling to the ground while blocking. Knox and the Buffalo Bills made a quick decision about the injury, and he went under the knife on Tuesday, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

According to NFL Network reporter Mike Garafalo, it should be...

One-Stat Recap: the Buffalo Bills fall short against the Tennessee Titans

The Bills’ offense fizzled out where it counts the most

For the second year in a row, the Buffalo Bills traveled down to Nashville to face the Tennessee Titans in a primetime game, and for the second year row the team suffered a disappointing loss. Unlike last year the Bills looked to be the better team for most of the game this year, but in the end they didn’t do enough to secure a victory.

Many things went wrong, both offensively and defensively,...

Snap Count Notes: Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans

Not the end result we all wanted

This game reminded me of a poll/question I saw posted on Twitter earlier this year that asked something to the effect of “Would you take a Super Bowl win now if it meant guaranteeing your team wouldn’t win another for at least 40 years?” Most people enthusiastically said “yes.” I was a lonely dissenter. The win would be nice, but then you’re relegating yourself to decades of ultimate futility. But the worst...

D’Amico and Newton evaluate the Bills’ performance against the Tennessee Titans, and give their thoughts on what could have turned the game in Buffalo’s favor. Big Newt leaned on his experience as a college...
