Here’s what to expect when the Tennessee Titans and Bills clash in Week 6.
When the Bills selected Allen with the seventh pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, the hope was that they had finally found their franchise guy, someone they could eventually mention in the same breath as Jim Kelly.
They’ve found their franchise guy. That’s without question. Now, the conversation is about something else. Can Allen do what Kelly couldn’t do, get to the Super Bowl and win it?
The short answer to that is yes. The Buffalo Bills are absolutely capable of getting to football’s biggest game and winning. The question is, will they?
Are they peaking too early? Is this team as good as we believe them to be? Is this monstrous start that we’re seeing sustainable for 12 more regular-season games and, if they earn that first-round bye, three more games in the postseason?
Allen is a legitimate MVP candidate, and that may be the case for years to come. He’s smart, a leader, and possesses a cannon for an arm. Oh, and here’s what people seem to have forgotten because they haven’t thought about it in a while. Buffalo is an awful place for opposing teams to visit late in January.
While it’s too early to place the Billls in the Super Bowl, they’re favored against the Titans for good reason. In order for Tennessee to win, they MUST play ball control. Keeping that vaunted Bills offense on the sideline will be key. This will be a much closer game than people expect, but a mistake or lapse in coverage late will decide this one.
Here’s Titan Sized’s prediction (as much as it pains us to say it): Buffalo: 31 Tennessee 27
Now, we just need the Titans to prove us wrong.
