Orchard Park – The Buffalo Bills steamrolled the Tennessee Titans 41-7 on Monday Night Football. Bills Mafia was electric in anticipation of the home opener on national television. The Bills delivered in a big way in every phase of the game to improve to 2-0 on the season.
The Bills offense was firing on all cylinders from the opening kickoff. Quarterback Josh Allen was a technician going 26-38 for 317 yards and 4 touchdowns with no turnovers. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs exploited an inexperienced secondary pulling down 12 receptions for 148 yards and 3 touchdowns. The other pass catchers performed well filling in for Gabriel Davis who was out with an injury.
Circling the Wagons
The Bills run defense played lights out against a formidable foe in Derrick Henry. The Bills front four controlled the line of scrimmage all night. Henry was effectively shutdown, finishing the game with 13 carries for 25 yards (1.9 yards/carry) and 1 touchdown.
The Bills pass defense was stellar as usual, surrendering no touchdowns through the air. The defense had 2 interceptions, including a pick-six by linebacker Matt Milano. Rookie cornerback Christian Benford continued to excel in pass coverage and made some great plays against the run, including a forced fumble.
On the injury front, cornerback Dane Jackson is day-to-day with a neck injury after being released from the hospital following a vicious hit. Safety Micah Hyde is also day-to-day with a neck injury. Linebacker Matt Milano left the game with a stinger, as did Jordan Phillips with a hamstring injury.
