Week 6 of NFL action concludes on “Monday Night Football” with a meeting between the Bills and Titans in Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tenn.
Buffalo appears to be the best team in the league this year, claiming not only a top-six offense (410.4 yards per game) but also the No. 1 defense, surrendering just 251.8 yards per contest. The next-closest team in that category is Cleveland, which gives up 307.7 yards a game.
Buffalo is riding high behind quarterback Josh Allen, who has 288 rushing yards and two scores on top of his 1,370 passing yards and 12 touchdowns. The defense, meanwhile, has forced a league-high 15 turnovers for a plus-11 differential this season.
That said, the Titans have the last victory in this series, beating the Bills handily in 2020, 42-26. In that matchup, they limited eventual 2,000-yard rusher Derrick Henry to just 57 yards, though he did make a highlight reel-worthy play when he stiff-armed Josh Norman into oblivion. How will Henry, who leads the league in carries (142), yards (640) and rushing touchdowns (seven) in 2021, perform against Buffalo?
