Buffalo Bills Links, 10/12: Bills vs. Titans back on...for now

So many games have been altered, but the NFL intends on having the Bills and Titans play.

In today’s edition of the Buffalo Bills daily links, we continue to monitor the ever-evolving situation in Nashville involving the Tennessee Titans and the COVID-19 outbreak amongst players, coaches and staff members.

While the NFL altered its schedule and changed eight future games due to coronavirus issues (including shifting Buffalo’s Week 6 showdown vs. the Kansas City Chiefs from Thursday night to Monday night), Tuesday night’s Week 5 clash between the Buffalo Bills (4-0) and Titans (3-0) is on, at least as of now. This despite another positive test among a Titans staff member Sunday.

We discuss the COVID-19 situation, then identify the key matchups to watch if the game is played, including pondering if this is the week Devin Singletary and the ground game will go off, how Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs and the passing game will attack the Titans’ secondary, whether Buffalo can contain talented running back Derrick Henry and tight end Jonnu Smith, whether All-Pro cornerback Tre’Davious White will play, and more.
