The 2022 Buffalo Bills are off to an impressive 2-0 start to the young season. After a dominant 31-10 victory over the defending Super Bowl Champion LA Rams on the road in week 1, the Bills were ready for the Titans.
This is the second week in a row the Bills were being broadcasted live on primetime TV. It was giving Josh Allen and the team a chance to win another game right in the fan’s living rooms.
The Bills moved the ball down the field on their first drive and scored on a fullback screen pass from Josh Allen to Reggie Gilliam. He broke many tackles and ran the ball in for a touchdown making it 7-0 Buffalo.
The Titans responded back on their next possession with a short touchdown run from running back Derrick Henry to tie the score at 7. That would be the last score from the Titan’s offense for the rest of the game.
The Bills were impressive on both offense and defense as it seemed as if they could do no wrong in the game. The defense basically shut down Henry all night except for his one touchdown. On offense, Allen threw three touchdowns to Stefon Diggs.
Allen played so well that he was taken out of the game in the third quarter. He threw for 317-yards and four touchdowns.
Bills Played Stout Defense
The Bills Defensive Unit was a machine all night long. They were making great tackles along with interceptions. Linebacker Matt Milano had a 43-yard interception return for a touchdown. As a result, the Bills led the Titans 41-7 with 3:49 left in the third quarter. Ryan Tannehill was benched for rookie Malik Willis as Tennessee knew that they already lost the game at that point.
The Titans mustered 75-yards on their first possession and then 42-yards on their next six possessions bundled. After the Henry touchdown, the Titans’ possessions were: punt, punt, end of the half, punt, punt, interception, interception. The Titans could not sustain consistent drives.
A Scary Moment
While most of the night was happy and gleeful, Bills Mafia and Highmark Stadium went somber for a few minutes. Bills CB Dane Jackson left the game in an ambulance after colliding with teammate, Tremaine Edmunds with 45 seconds left in the first half.
Fans went silent as it is always scary to see an ambulance come out on the field, but everyone stayed calm and all of Jackson’s teammates were checking on him to make sure he was okoy.
The good news is he had full movement in all of his extremities.
The Bills will be playing their first Sunday afternoon game on September 25th at 1:00pm when they take on Tua Tagovailoa and the 2-0 Miami Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium.
