Monday Night Football Preview: Buffalo Bills vs Tennessee Titans

In the first game of a rare Monday Night Football doubleheader, The Buffalo Bills host the Tennessee Titans in Week 2. The teams last faced off in Week 6 of 2021 in a memorable 34-31 win for the Titans that ended on a failed fourth-down quarterback sneak by Bills quarterback Josh Allen inside the Titans' five-yard line. The Bills are looking for revenge this year, and they're colossal 10-point favorites to do it.

Week 1 couldn't have gone much better for the Bills. The Super Bowl favorites absolutely dominated the defending champion Los Angeles Rams in a 31-10 win, outgaining the Rams 413 yards to 243 and forcing three turnovers. They'll look to unleash a front seven featuring linebacker Von Miller that relentlessly harassed quarterback Matthew Stafford for seven sacks and consistently crushed the Rams running backs, holding the team to 2.89 yards per carry. If the Bills offense can reduce some of the sloppy play that led to four turnovers in Week 1, there may be no stopping them for the foreseeable future.

As for the Titans, they weren't so fortunate in Week 1. Tennessee missed a 47-yard field goal in the game's waning seconds and lost a narrow 21-20 game to the New York Giants. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill played a clean game, compiling 266 net passing yards on 34 dropbacks, and running back Derrick Henry was fine, rushing for 82 yards on 21 attempts, but it'll take a lot more from the Titans' stars if they want to keep up with the Bills this week given the way Tennessee played on defense. The Titans allowed a positively brutal 9.11 yards per rushing attempt to Giants running back Saquon Barkley, and quarterback Daniel Jones completed 17 of his 21 passes. Tennessee will have to tighten up if they have any hope of slowing down last year's third-best scoring offense.

The Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills face in Week 2 on Monday Night Football. Be warned: kickoff is scheduled at an unusual 7:15 ET on ESPN.
