In a battle of AFC heavyweights, the Bills landed the first blows in their Monday night showdown against the visiting Titans. Buffalo, spurned on by its spirited crowd inside Highmark Stadium took a 17-7 lead into intermission.
Both teams scored on their opening drive. The Bills took a quick 7-0 lead on Reggie Gilliam’s 11-yard touchdown reception. The Titans responded with Derrick Henry finding pay dirt from two yards out. Henry didn’t have too much success for the remainder of the half, however, as he ran for just 12 yards on eight carries.
With Henry neutralized, the Bills dominated the second quarter. They re-gained the lead on Tyler Bass’ 49-yard field goal midway through the quarter. After Buffalo’s defense forced a quick three-and-out, Josh Allen, who threw for 203 yards in the first half, hit Jake Kumerow for a 40-yard strike before the two-minute warning. The big play set up Allen’s four-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs that stretched Buffalo’s lead to double-digits.
