Buffalo Bills Annihilate Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football

There appears to be no stopping the Buffalo Bills in the early portion of the 2022 NFL season. The Super Bowl favorite absolutely demolished the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football, winning the showdown between the 2021 elite 41-7. The Titans looked nothing like the team that defeated the Bills 34-31 in a Monday Night Football classic last year, offering no resistance on either side of the ball. Even a pair of alarming injuries to defensive backs Dane Jackson and Micah Hyde couldn't spoil the good spirits in Buffalo.

Somehow, the Bills played a more dominant game this week than they did in their season opener against the Rams. They opened with a touchdown on their first drive, went into the half up 17-7, and only extended their lead from there. Quarterback Josh Allen finished with a dominant 313 net passing yards on 39 dropbacks, Stefon Diggs piled up 148 receiving yards and three touchdowns, and the defense smothered the Titans by forcing four turnovers and allowing a minuscule 3.43 yards per play. The Bills thoroughly dismantled last year's top seed in the AFC, yet again announcing themselves as the team to beat in the NFL this year.

As for the Titans, they were all but helpless after their first drive. Running back Derrick Henry toiled thanklessly for 25 yards on 13 carries, and Ryan Tannehill struggled through the air for a brutal 101 net passing yards and two interceptions, including a pick-six. The Titans all but conceded the game down 41-7 after three quarters, benching Tannehill for rookie quarterback Malik Willis. If the Titans want to take anything positive away from a disastrous Week 2, it'll be that the rest of their division has been similarly ineffectual: only the Jacksonville Jaguars have won a game, and it came at the expense of fellow AFC South team the Indianapolis Colts.

In Week 3, the Buffalo Bills visit the Miami Dolphins in a critical AFC East showdown between undefeated teams, and the Tennessee Titans will try to get their first win when they host the 0-2 Las Vegas Raiders.
