Meanwhile, the Bills’ defense limited the Titans to just 182 yards of total attack and only 12 first touchdowns, returning Kessine and forcing four layoffs, one of which was brought back 43 yards by linebacker Matt Milan for a touchdown.

The wheels fell for the Titans, particularly in the third quarter where they edged out the score 24-0. Ryan Tanehill, who finished 11 of 20 for 117 yards, threw back-to-back property interceptions and was put off the bench after Milan picked six. Rookie QB Malik Willis took charge but completed only one of four passes for six yards in his movement, while running the ball four times for 16 yards and missing a hit.

With the win, the Bills (2-0) expelled some past frustrations, including a 42-16 loss to Tennessee in 2020 and a 34-31 loss last year as Buffalo squandered a seven-point lead in the fourth quarter and was Allen. Stuffed on the goal line in the final seconds.

The Titans (0-2) opened the season with consecutive defeats for the first time in a decade and with questions about a defense that gave up 313 yards after a week of letting in a 238-yard dash. Meanwhile, star back Derek Henry was limited to just 25 yards on 13 buggies, but scored the team’s only points in a two-yard TD.

Injuries affected both teams in the competition, the most serious of which was the injury of the Bills cornerback Dane Jackson, who injured his neck in a troubling collision with one of his teammates. He was taken to hospital for evaluation, where the bills said Jackson had ‘total movement in his limbs’.

What they said… they outsmarted us and outsmarted us

Bills quarterback, Josh Allen: “When we implement, how do we know we are supposed to implement, success usually leads to success.

“We’re just trying to be the best version of ourselves.

“It doesn’t matter who it’s against. Like, that’s a good team we played. For us, that was great.”

[On Stefon Diggs]. “We know he’s one of the greatest, if not the greatest, receivers in the game right now, and I trust him implicitly. I love that guy, he’s working his tail off.”

Team Titans coach Mike Frapel: “We (butts) were kicked, plain and simple.

“They outdid us and outdid us, that is our definition. We will go back to work and try to figure out how to win a football match.”
