The Tennessee Titans travel north to take on the Buffalo Bills tomorrow and the Titan Sized staff has predictions for the conference duel.
Following three emotional and hard-fought victories over the Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars and Philadelphia Eagles over the past three weeks, this week’s road game against the Buffalo Bills is being hyped up as a possible “trap game” for the Tennessee Titans. Color a lot of us here at Titan Sized skeptical, although it would behoove the Titans to not look past Sunday, as every game over a 17-week period is important. Sitting at 3-1 and with a chance to improve their conference record, the Titans should handle their business and leave Buffalo with their fourth-straight victory.
Matias Wodner: I think the Bills have an underrated defense that could theoretically cause some problems for the Titans offense, particularly with Tre’Davious White likely to shadow Corey Davis. Despite that, the Bills offense just won’t be able to move the ball on the Titans’ stout defense and a couple of turnovers will set the Titans up with good field goal position to put this game away with the running game.
Score: Titans 23-14 Bills
Nick Lombardi: The Titans and Bills are both bottom 7 in the league in terms of total points – pretty bad when you consider that 2 of those 7 teams (CAR and WAS) have only played 3 games. This is most likely why the over/under for this game is set at a measly 39 points. However, I expect this matchup to feature more scoring than expected. The Titans passing offense will build off an impressive showing against Philly, and the running game finally wakes up. But the Bills also recognize Tennessee’s struggles defending the run and proceed to feed Shady McCoy. But their lack of passing attack prevents them from keeping pace with the Titans.
Score: Titans 31-17 Bills
Max Dambach: Though the Titans have become masters of the close game, with three straight victories decided only by a field goal, the Titans finally pull out a decisive victory against a Bills team that lacks talent on both sides of the ball. The offense is finally clicking on all cylinders and the defense has been stifling. If the Titans want to be a contender for the Super Bowl, they must defeat teams like Buffalo with ease.
Score: Titans 24-7 Bills
Ryan Dobbins: The defense steps up huge against a team that ranks in the bottom five in almost every offensive category and forces a pair of turnovers. Henry and Lewis get back on track against the Bills defense that’s banged up through Week 5, while Davis racks up another 100+ yard game.
Score: Titans 30-14 Bills
Zach Williams: This is the week that we have all been waiting for, Derrick Henry will finally get going on the ground. Henry will have 120 yards on the ground and two touchdowns.
Score: Titans 28-10 Bills
Will Lomas: 24-14 Titans
