The Buffalo Bills (4-0) and Tennessee Titans (3-0) are two of the five remaining undefeated teams in the NFL, and on Tuesday night, they will meet in a most unusual of Week 5 clashes in just the third NFL game played on a Tuesday since 1946.
A COVID-19 outbreak among the Titans players, coaches, and staff members where there were 24 total positive tests forced this game to be pushed back two days from its originally scheduled date.
The Bills and Titans will have the eyes of the football world on them in Nashville, as these two unbeatens square off in a game with major playoff implications early in the season..
Buffalo is searching for its first five-game winning streak since 2004, and its first 5-0 start to a season since 1991, when the Bills made their second straight Super Bowl before suffering a 37-24 loss to Washington. The Bills are outscoring their foes by an average of 30.8-25 during their four-game winning streak, while the Titans are outscoring their competition by an average of 26.7-24.7.
Buffalo is coming off a 30-23 road win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 4, the Bills’ third-straight game eclipsing 30 points. Tennessee has not played since defeating the Minnesota Vikings 31-30 on Sept. 27.
If the Bills score 30-plus points vs. the Titans, they will have scored 30+ points in four straight games for just the fourth time in franchise history, and the first time since 2004.
This will be the 48th meeting all-time between the Bills and Titans.
The Titans lead the series 28-19, with Buffalo earning a 14-7 win in the last matchup on Oct. 6, 2019. Duke Williams hauled in a seven-yard touchdown pass from Josh Allen to snap a 7-all tie and propel the Bills to victory. Buffalo has won the last three showdowns with Tennessee.
