MVP candidate Josh Allen leads the 4-1 Buffalo Bills into Music City to take on the 3-2 Tennessee Titans. Buffalo has won four in a row and coming off a 38-20 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, while Tennessee is coming off a 37-19 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Allen is averaging 311.6 passing per game with 12 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. He’s also averaging 37.6 yards on the ground with two touchdowns. The passing attack is led by Stefon Diggs with 374 yards on 28 receptions and one touchdown. Emmanuel Sanders has 322 yards on 19 receptions with four touchdowns. Tight end Dawson Knox is having a breakout season with 261 yards on 18 receptions with five touchdowns. Cole Beasley is also a big part of the passing game with 26 receptions for 215 yards.
Devin Singletary leads the rushing attack, averaging 56.8 yards per game and one touchdown. Zach Moss averages 46 yards per game and has scored three touchdowns.
Ryan Tannehill leads Tennessee’s passing attack, averaging 276.2 yards per game with 6 touchdowns and three interceptions. He’s also averaging 26 yards per game on the ground and has one rushing touchdown. The wide receiver corps have been banged up with A.J. Brown missing one game and Julio Jones missing two games. Brown popped up on the injury report with an illness so his status for the game is questionable and a situation that requires monitoring.
Jones leads the team in receiving with 204 yards on 12 receptions. Chester Rogers is second on the team with 179 yards on 13 receptions. Brown has had a disappointing season with only 130 yards on 10 receptions. Both running backs contribute in the passing game with Derrick Henry catching 14 passes for 125 yards, while Jeremy McNichols has 17 receptions for 160 yards.
Henry is still a monster in the run game, averaging 128 yards per game with 7 touchdowns. McNichols hasn’t contributed much at all on the ground with just 38 yards on 7 carries.
If A.J. Brown is forced to miss the game, wide receivers Chester Rogers and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine will be looked upon to contribute more in the passing game.
