Last week’s game was probably the most satisfying win of the season so far. In fact, it will probably be the most satisfying win of the Bills entire season. This team is legit and it’s now been proven.
Now onto the next:
Previously on Bills vs. Titans
It was exactly a year ago that the Bills met the Titans during Week 5 of the 2020 season in Nashville. And the Bills got slaughtered. After an impressive 4-0 start, the Bills fell 16-42 to Henry and Tannehill. But now it’s the Bills’ time.
Prediction #1: Turnovers for everyone
It’s not a secret that the Bills defense has been on fire. They’ve had at least three turnovers in every game; one of which was a pick-6 which is always fun to watch. (I refuse to believe the Steelers game even happened until there’s a formal investigation.)
The Titans offense hasn’t been as explosive so far, allowing multiple turnovers in each of their first three games. With this in mind, and the way the Bills defense has been playing, they’ll force four turnovers in the Titans game, one of which will be a Henry fumble. Specific? Yes. Doable? Also, yes.
Prediction #2: NO SACKS
I’ve predicted this for two weeks now and it’s worked out favorably. The first time, Allen got sacked once. Then last week, there were no sacks. In fact, through five games, Allen has been sacked just five times. This is the second-fewest times allowed in the league (the Rams have allowed Stafford to be sacked four times).
This is so damn remarkable as there was initial concerns about the O-Line the first couple of games. But the proof is there. They’re protecting Allen, with a little help from his own mobility. Once again, I’m predicting that Allen will not get sacked. I’m done speaking it into existence, it’s already happening.
Prediction #3: Tremaine Edmunds has a day
This is for all you Edmunds haters out there: first of all, how dare you. Do you know who leads the Bills with most tackles (30)? Tremaine Edmunds. (Closely followed by the newly extended Taron Johnson (27)). This LB is a beast and he deserves praise, not people hating on him.
He’s once again going to ball out, recording 10 total tackles and – just for fun – one interception. Don’t sleep on Edmunds.
Prediction #4: Diggs TD
Stefon Diggs is not the league leader in receiving yards this season and all I can say is: who cares? Allen is surrounded with weapons and no longer has to rely solely on Diggs. And it shows. There’s a nice spread of receivers and Allen is passing to all of them.
That being said, I think it’s about time for a Diggs TD. He’s not had one in a while and I think it’s long overdue. He’s got one in five games, that’s just criminal.
Prediction #5: Putting a stop to King Henry
The last time the Bills met the Titans, they limited Henry to just 57 rushing yards (and 2 TDs). Yes, there was the incident of him making Josh Norman his bitch. But, considering he had over 2,000 on the season, this was a pretty good stop.
Now though, the Bills D is much more improved. They’ll be able to hold Henry to under 50 yards and no TDs. Like seriously, Henry vs. Groot? I’m taking Rousseau all day. In fact, I’m so confident in this that I have benched Henry in my fantasy league. Only Monday will tell if this is a mistake.
After the Chiefs game, almost all my reservations about this team are put to rest. The defense is good, the offense is good, and of course Tyler Bass is a STUD. The Bills will hold the Titans to 16 whilst scoring over 35 themselves. Sanders, Diggs, Knox, and Moss will get themselves a TD. Additionally, Trubisky will score in garbage time to put the final nail in the coffin. Bills continue on their winning streak, 5-1.
