Spectacular is the right word to describe the showdown game between the Titans Vs. Bills. They didn’t disappoint rather entertain us with their electrifying performance as they both tried to keep up their winning streak intact.
However, the Tennessee Titans emerged victorious against Buffalo Bills with a mouthwatering final score of 42-16 and the limelight shining on Titans Quarterback Ryan Tannehill after he threw 3 touchdowns, 2 of them to tight end Jonnu Smith, and ran for another.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill joins in the list of other prominent quarterbacks, thus Rich Gannon, Jim Plunkett, and Steve Young, who all took a long time to find the right fit and had their career blossom long after everyone had given up.
Last year Tannehill had the 4th best single-season passer rating in NFL history at 117.5, and he has been tremendous for the Titans in enabling them to an AFC championship game.
The Titans are 11-3 in his starts with 31 touchdowns and seven interceptions, with Tannehill recording multiple touchdowns passes in 10 of his last 11 games.
Though the entire team was incredibly involved in their fourth consecutive win of the season, they humbled the Buffalo Bills with their first loss.
To think that the Titans were heading into the game after two-weeks in quarantine following their players testing for the COVID-19 and barely practicing. The results were astonishing as they overcame layoff to hand Buffalo Bills’ first loss of the season.
The Titans had last played a game Sept. 27 following the coronavirus outbreak in their midst, forcing the league to postpone their previous game and push this game back from Sunday. On Tuesday, the Titans faced-off Bills making history in NFL as the first Tuesday game since 2020 and only the second since 1946.
The Titans are a testimonial that the COVID-19 is real in the world of professional sports, and anyone can get it. After their 24 members in their organization, including 13 players, tested positive for the coronavirus. Enforcing the NFL to redirect the facility’s closure for 11 days before reopening on Saturday and closing it once again temporarily on Sunday after another positive test.
Despite the NFL allowing the Titans to conduct an outdoor practice on Sunday, it was unclear whether the match would happen. Thankfully, by Tuesday, the Titans had no positive test, thus enabling the match between the Titans and Bills to go on.
Next Sunday, the Titans will be looking forward to continuing with their undefeated streak as they welcome the Houston Texans at home, who just clinched their first win of the season against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Clearly, the Titans are the team to watch out for in this season after they showed that despite the hurdles of the COVID-19 in their organization, they are still the team to be reckoned with, and that message is loud and clear for everyone.
Let’s stay safe by wearing a mask, keeping a distance, and sanitizing our hands.
