Buffalo Bills Links, 10/10: No new positive tests for Titans

Plus, why Cody Ford seems more comfortable playing inside at guard.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

In today’s edition of the Buffalo Bills daily links, we dissect the latest news involving the COVID-19 outbreak amongst players, coaches and staff members with the Tennessee Titans. There was good news on Saturday, as reports said there were no new Titans’ positive tests, which (tentatively) means the game is still on track for Tuesday night, though at least one COVID-19 health expert feels “a little uneasy” about this game being played.

We also go inside the locker room to see how Bills players are contemplating the risks associated with playing a team in the middle of an outbreak, including both the financial repercussions (players won’t get paid if a game is canceled due to COVID-19) and the health consequences. The Bills and Titans, if they do play on Tuesday night, will become just the second NFL game to be contested on a Tuesday, and we discuss how the Bills have a strong connection to both Tuesday night games.

We also analyze why Cody Ford seems to be more comfortable playing inside at guard, break down why wide receiver Cole Beasley is off to the best start of his career, address how often the Bills and quarterback Josh Allen are lining up in three- or four-wide receive sets and how successful the team has been in those situations, and much more!
