Buffalo Bills Links, 10/11: Bills vs. Titans in jeopardy

Plus, why Jim Kelly likes what he sees from Josh Allen

In today’s edition of the Buffalo Bills daily links, we break down the latest news involving the COVID-19 outbreak amongst players, coaches and staff members with the Tennessee Titans.

After some good news on Saturday (the team reopened its training facility), the status of the Week 5 game is back in jeopardy following Sunday’s news of a Titans’ coach testing positive. That brings the total number of positive tests to 24 going back to Sept. 24, and with the Titans temporarily closing their facility, it seems more and more unlikely that the teams will play Tuesday night.

IF the teams do play, it will be just the second Tuesday night game since 1946. We dissect the key matchups to watch, including why Devin Singletary should be in line for a huge day, why Buffalo’s offense holds a huge edge in third-down conversions, and how quarterbacks Josh Allen and Ryan Tannehill are leading two of the league’s top play-action passing teams. We also run through the latest injury news involving linebacker Matt Milano, cornerback Tre’Davious White, kick returner Andre Roberts, and wide receiver John Brown.

We hear why Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly is “very confident” that Allen will be Buffalo’s long sought-after franchise quarterback, address what’s wrong with the defense, discuss guard Quinton Spain’s future with the team, offer up a barbecue tailgating sauce recipe, and much more!
