Bills vs Titans scores: Josh Allen, Buffalo make statement in emphatic win over Tennessee in prime time

In a fight for AFC heavyweight, Bills The Knockouts delivered Monday night sending a loud message to the rest of the NFL. The Bills went 2-0 up, cementing their case as the conference’s top team, registering a 41-7 win over the visiting Titans.

This was a major performance for the Bills in all three phases. The headliner was quarterback Josh Allen, who threw 317 yards and four touchdowns in the work of three quarters. He had a field day to dismiss Stephen Diggs, who caught 12 passes for 148 yards and three scores. Buffalo’s offense was complemented by a defense that closed the Titans star running back Derrick Henry, who ended the night with a touchdown on 25 yards and 13 carries.

The game started off competitively enough, as both teams scored touchdowns on their opening drives. But the Bills took on the game after that, scoring 10 unanswered points in the second quarter to take a 17-7 halftime lead. The Bills ended the competitive phase of the game with 24 unanswered points in the third quarter. Of those points, 17 were the result of three forced turnovers, including Matt Milano’s 43-yard pick-six Ryan Tanhill, who was relieved after rookie Malik Willis threw the second pick of the quarter.

The win allowed the Bills to keep pace with the Dolphins over the AFC East. At 0-2, Tennessee is in good company, as it is one of three winning teams currently residing in the AFC South.

why bill live

Everything went well for the Bills on Monday night, which is truly the headline. Buffalo showed in Week 1 versus the Los Angeles Rams that it deserves to be the odds-on favorite to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in February, and the bills have just been made on their case in Week 2. Allen completed 26 of 38 passes for 317 yards. and four touchdowns, while Diggs caught 12 passes for 148 yards and three touchdowns.

The defense allowed a total of 182 Titans yards compared to the Bills’ 414, and Buffalo won the battle of turnovers 4–0. The Bills won every aspect of the game in 2 weeks. It’s that easy.

why did the titans lose

I think a better question is what went right for the Titans while it went wrong on Monday Night. Tanhill completed 11 of 20 passes for 117 yards and two interceptions, Derrick Henry covered just 25 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries and the defense continued to advance. I think the third item is the one that really stood out at this loss.

One weakness clearly exploited by Buffalo was Tennessee’s secondary. 1 cornerback of the Titans in Christian Fulton was ruled out on Saturday with a hamstring injury, and without him, the unit is young and very inexperienced. Former first-round pick Caleb Farley was playing in his fifth career game, and then there are Roger McCreery and Trey Avery rookies. The trio fought, especially Farley, to stop this explosive crime. It’s tough whenever Jake Cumero cooks you for a 39-yard gain. Similarly many big plays were abandoned, with Diggs catching a 46-yard bomb and Isaiah Mackenzie catching a 28-yard pass. Allen certainly had a great statline, but I’m honestly surprised he didn’t take more shots downfield.

The Titans secondary was not elite last year either, but the front seven made them good on the occasion. With Harold Landry this season due to a torn ACL, Bud Dupree with a hip injury except Monday night and Ola Adeniyi also hit, the Titans’ defensive line struggled to get the pressure off Allen – the young cornerback left to their own equipment.


In the third quarter, the Titans finally forced the Bills’ first punt of the season. Sam Martin shrugs it off, and Titans rookie wideout Kyle Phillips muffs it – his second muffed punt of the season.

The UCLA product has huge potential as a slot receiver, but you have to wonder if Mike Wrabel is going to leave him back there, fielding on the move.

game play

Bill’s offense and all the points he held were the headlines of this matchup, but the defense played well too! He made an impressive four turnovers – including this impressive interception from veteran Jordan Poore.

what will happen next

The Titans returned to Nashville to host the 0-2 Las Vegas Raiders the following Sunday. For the Bills, they hit the road to take on the undefeated Miami Dolphins and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who is coming off an impressive, 469-yard, six-touchdown performance.
