After suffering a hear breaking loss last Sunday, the Buffalo Bills bounced back in a physical must-win game against the Tennessee Titans. The Bills have now beaten the Titans in their last three games of a combined score of 41-32. The Bills defense stood out once again, even through injuries and questionable penalty calls.
The Bills did not obtain four wins last season until Week 12 against the Jaguars. They are heading into the right direction as the season continues to get tougher.
The Bills offense took the lead in the second quarter off of a passing touchdown from Josh Allen to Lee Smith. The Bills took the early 7-0 lead to halftime. Allen finished the game 23/32 for 219 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He also added on 27 rushing yards including the game-winning rushing first down near the end of the game.
After the Titans tied the ball game up in the their quarter, Allen would find himself throwing the ball to the end zone again to wide receiver Duke Williams, who was brought up from the practice squad this past Friday. This touchdown pass was the last time either team saw the end zone.

With the Bills moving to 4-1 on the season and sending the Titans to 2-3, they move forward into the bye week and are able to rest up.
The Bills lost valuable players at some point in the game today. Jordan Poyer, Matt Milano and Mitch Morse were big losses for the Bills at certain times. The offensive line also lost Cody Ford during the second half. Luckily the team has time to rest up during the bye week.
The Second Half Offense
The Bills offense played significantly better when it mattered the most in the second half. They managed the clock and the only big mistake that was made was a costly interception thrown by Allen. They were able to make the big plays when it counted and protected the ball.
Allen played better this week and redeemed himself from last weeks’ showing.
The Upcoming Weeks
The Bills have time to rest up for the next two weeks with a bye next Sunday. After that, they will be staying in Orchard Park for the month of October. They will host the Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins. Deeper into the season means deeper into the pressure.
