Football fans have been gifted with another night of NFL action, as the Bills (4-0) and Titans (3-0) go head to head in a rare Tuesday night matchup.
The game was originally scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m., but will instead get a prime time spot after it was postponed to Tuesday at 7 p.m. due to Tennessee’s complications with COVID-19.
That means fans this week will still get a chance to see Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen, who some have labelled a dark horse MVP candidate. Through four games, Allen has led the Bills to an undefeated record, completing 70.9 percent of his passes for 1,326 yards, 12 touchdowns and just one interception. He also has three rushing touchdowns to boot.
Tennessee, on the other hand, might look a bit rusty after not having played since Week 3; the Titans’ Week 4 game against the Steelers was postponed until later this season. The key will be trying to limit the damage done by Allen and Stefon Diggs and control the time of possession by getting Derrick Henry (82 carries for 319 yards and two touchdowns) going on the ground.
