Game Thread: Buffalo Bills (4-1) at Tennessee Titans (3-2)
By - nfl_gamethread
Titans be like "consistency? never heard of her"
Diehard Titans fan here! Consistency has never been our strength
Thanks a lot Buffalo lost thousand dollars
Bro you sound like a real hater here you just became a buccaneers fan last year
Stop betting on sports.
Why it’s easy money I only lost 30 dollars I got everyone right on my list the bill was supposed to win that one
If it’s easy money, why didn’t you win?
If you bet on sports, don’t complain when you lose your money.
Why? Titans was easy money.
Ah yeah this was a doozy
“1-0 each week”
Another prime time banger
If I was a Bills player I would have simply played better.
This guy gets it
Huge if true
Dude, you’re on to something
Josh Allen slipped on a banana peel.
What a shit game
Probably been the 2nd best game this season yet. Two amazing teams going at it
It was just a really bad showing by the Bills IMO
Are Titans the kings of upset/trap games? I feel like it’s their bread and butter.
Yes. We win when we should lose and lose when we should win. It will all level out to about 9-8 and a wildcard spot
Exactly this! Always!
“Easy” games go pear shaped while we rally and win when we realistically shouldn’t have a chance!
Not against the Steelers last season 🥶
Titans > bills
Jets > bills
Jets = Super Bowl favorite
Why chiasmus fails…
Oy, we beat the bills too
Jets = Steelers
Super Bowl here we come
No like, you guys are as BAD as the Jets.
Yea but the Jets are Super Bowl favorites, didn't you read what the u/Callmepimpdaddy said
I don't see any flaws in this logic
Titans were missing Dupree and Brown for the Jets game. Two game changing players.
I am nutting
Hi, Nutting! I’m fartsinhissleep
People talk about how bad the AFC South is, but the AFC East has the same collective record. Both divisions are awful.
The AFC east is the worst afc division. Atleast the colts are pretty decent, the patriots are truely terrible
2 turn overs and a missed field goal from being a 1 loss team? 2 of which were against the cowboys and bucs both favorites to go deep in the play offs but they're a terrible team? Lol
The vikes are a missed fieldgoal and a fake fumble away from being the same, dont see me saying theyre amazing. The patriots are not playing good football imho, Jones just doesnt have the armstrength rn.
Have you watched a game? The dude literally just threw a 75 yard TD pass, I'll give it being 35 YAC, with ease. Anemic play calling has nothing to do with arm strength. And no one has said the vikings are a garbage team? A garbage team isn't keeping up with superbowl contenders. It took Dallas a late game pick and over time to win, the bucs game again poor play calling with a kicker having to kick a long field goal in the rain while injured lol. You're speaking like someone whose only watched highlights instead of the actual games.
I will be honest I havent watched the last game but I hadnt seen Mac throw a deep ball before much. Most of the patriots games Ive seen were indeed highlights so perhaps theyre better in a full game scenario. Will watch their next one against the chargers and see how they perform against a strong opponent
A strong opponent that just got shut down vs the ravens? Again review the bucks or cowboys game. Trying to figure out though how you decided with 0 actual game watching you thought you had a valid opinion at all? I can call the chiefs a weak team seeing their record and low lights. I'd also be laughed at and told my opinion has no basis yet you were ready to defend yours?
The chiefs this year arent a very good team they have serious trouble on defense and Mahomes keeps throwing picks. Theyre very average atm. Tyreek also keeps dropping balls. And the ravens have played really well these last couple of games theyre a serious threat.
As of my opinion on the patriots, idk bout you but I dont watch 24 hours of nfl tape each week, and highlights normally are enough to see what a team is capable of roughly. Going against the bucs when their qb has been in your building for 15+ years isnt a valid game to me, the cowboys game I'll look into but I do know their playcalling and clock managment is holding them back severly.
Dude you are the worst couch fan and one of the dumbest people I've spoken to. There is no combination of words to describe how many braincells I've lost reading your text. Just give up claiming to have any knowledge of football
I was 5 points off from winning, but nonetheless, Thank you King Henry.
Great game too!
I was 70pts down going into Monday night. Thanks Julio, Josh Allen and King Henry
No miracle needed. Let’s go TITS
Worst part of the loss is hearing Nick Wrights annoying ass and Bills have a bye
I loathe that man with a passion. I don’t even know why he’s on tv.
Nick wright is a bum
Nick Wright is irrelevant
I'd let Derrick Henry have sex with my wife. Class act.
He’s been having sex with my entire family for years now, I ask him to stop but there isn’t much I can do. I called the police and he ended up just having sex with them too it’s a nightmare.
A true professional. Barry Sanders was the same way.
What about Peyton Hillis tho
Bills defense gave up scores on 6 straight drives. Pretty impressive on the part of the Titans
Pretty sure this is at least part of the reason they went for it
Yep, Tannehill had been sacked 20 times in the previous 5 games. His protection held up much better than I expected tonight. Going in, I expected this game to end with 30 sacks in 6 games.
I feel like you have to go on 2 instead of 1.
I agree but at the same time maybe that’s why you go on 1
Brady at home laughing at Josh Allen's 2 attempts to qb sneak tonight. They might oughtta practice that, no way he should ever be stopped there. I know he slipped but he still stepped back before he went fwd. Just follow the center for fucks sake no one is stopping that big frame.
Yeah like why didn't he just push forward. Instead he got cute and looked for a crease.
I feel like he was looking for TD instead of just getting the 1st for some reason
Yup, did the same thing earlier in the game also. Just bad
Derrick Henry MVP
I tuned in just in time to see him stiff arm a DE like he was swatting a mildly annoying fly. Dude is unreal.
Wild game but king Henry is a menace
It's official: Derrick Henry is the fucking GOAT for running backs. Better than Herschel, Dickerson, Sanders, Brown, Payton...
Blasphemy, but he's the best playing today
Or the past three seasons
2nd best behind Jim Brown.
What's wild is Henry is like Jim Brown 2.0. Tall, fast as hell, strong as hell, and impossible to bring down with just one guy. As much as Henry breaks the game today, what Brown was doing in his day was fucking bananas.
I’d still take AP even from this(ish) generation. Henry is the best pure runner since AP, but let’s see it more than 2-3 years
Fuck a AP with a tree branch
Fuck you with a jet
Good one Virgil
Gotta be my favorite RB of all time. I can't imagine having the stop that dude while he runs full speed into you
A human freight train
Not even a titans fan and I can 100 percent get behind this
He was the rushing leader by over 100 yards before the game even kicked off tonight.
That doesn't make him better than Sanders, Emmitt, etc.
He's got 783 yards through 6 games. He's almost at 1000 yards through like a third of the season...
I'm well aware of everything he has done. It is too early to say he's the GOAT. I think he will be by the time he's done but let's be real for now. We need back-to-back 2k, MVP and SB MVP.
Good game Titans from a Bills fan.
Good luck in the rest of the season. Just beat the Ravens I'm the playoffs so we don't have to play them.
GETTING THE FIRST DOWN DOESNT SCORE YOU A TOUCHDOWN OMG. TERRIBLE FREAKING CALL. YOU STILL NEED TO SCORE A TOUCHDOWN🤦🏻♂️
No. The call was fine. They woulda had 2 or 3 shots to the endzone if allen gets the first.
If they got the first they would have more shots at the end zone though. Getting the first was priority number 1.
I think tying the game would be the number one priority. Better to stay alive and get another shot then shoot your shot and miss as you see from this game.
Not that simple though.
No garuantee you even see the ball in OT.
True but in that case you give your defense the opportunity to stop them at least. Everyone is saying oh this shows you trust your offense but it also shows you don't trust your defense.
Theyd been scored on 6 drives in a row.
Titans 10-0 in the 4th quarter damn
As a Jags fan, after watching the Titans the last two weeks, one rule is certain: Don't run it on them on 4th down with the game on the line.
Where is SVP?
I've got 1 hr 43 minutes of movie compared to 60 min of football tonight. And it's more on the give side(I mean prob higher then 1 hr and 43 min)
Hey at least you didn’t lose to the Jaguars.
Maybe people will forget we lost to the Jets
With enough bleach I can erase enough brain cells to forget any loss, and come back for more next week.
*Some* people may
Tua just got back. And the lion's want the 1 draft spot
We just beat the fuckin vaunted Bills with a Canadian tier secondary eat my fuckin two toned balls Buffalo
LETS GOOO, but seriously man you might want to have a doctor check out those balls
Is this what it feels like to be a Bills fan lmao
Andrew luck hurt everyone
Can Allen not do those circus somersault moves?!! Please! Bro, you are worth quarter billion dollars!
He reminds me a lot of Cam Newton. We all know just about how long that can last though, sadly….
Except Allen can actually hit his receivers consistently.
That's just how he is. Love him for it
It’s the Buffalo way. Live by vaulting through tables, die by vaulting the tables
If I was a Bill's fan, I would not like to see him doing this stuff. As a non-Bills fan, it's amazing to see what he'll do next.
If you don't love Henry, you are wront
I'm not wront. You're wront.
Nah bro I'm totally rit
"Just take the points" is not the "smart" or "responsible" or "mature" decision, It's a gamble in the same way that going for it is - **especially** with NFL overtimes being so dependent on the coin toss. You don't get any special consolation points for losing in OT. Kicking there just means you have a 50% chance of winning.
I don't mind the going for it. The sneak was dumb though considering the clock and only 1 timeout
It's the same as "if you need 2 scores and 1 2 pt conversion, do not go on the 1st attempt".
It's analytically better to go for 2 on the first attempt. But it could "put the game out of reach". People prefer to lengthen the game, even if it hurts your odds. For some reason.
To be fair, the longer a game goes on, the more tired defense gets typically. So waiting and extra drive could mean they are that much more tired.
yep, same exact fallacy.
yeah it was the right call I think, just not the best play call
That’s the right call there. Josh gets that just about every time we run it. It’s a long season and I guarantee we will win games with that exact play. It happens. Great game by the Titans. Well fought and deserved win. But that’s the right call.
Yeah, it was the right call, Allen just couldn’t have picked a worse lineman to go at. Plus he slipped too. It was a very exciting game. Hope to see the Bills in the playoffs
We stepped up tonight for sure, but 9 times out of 10 I'd pick you guys to win this game. And I have serious money bet on futures for you guys this season so you better shake this shit off and win out lol
Hey man, shit happens. It’s a what have you done for me lately league and y’all stepped up. Great win all around. We will just have to rally back lol
YA, BUT NOW I LOST MY BET 😭
Yeah but you look like an idiot if it fails
Which means nothing lol
Best news is the manning's are back next week. Listening to steve levy's dumbass for 3 hours is torture
The amount of wrong names and bad stats was grotesque
My favorite was when one of them (I think Griese) said AJ Brown didn’t have a catch when he had literally caught his first catch that drive like 2 plays before - I seriously think we could pick three random guys from this sub and have a better broadcast team than ESPN
I’d rather have two fans from each team throwing back cold ones the entire game. They’d be 100% more accurate and maybe a lil less biased.
He got the numbers confused and called Allen, Tannehill. I mean the numbers are the same but holy shit.
This is something we can agree on tonight. Holy shit he was atrocious.
I can be humble and admit y’all deserved the win. Just glad I didn’t have to deal with Collinsworth again this week.
Here's a guy!
I'm pretty sure he called mcdremmot mcvay
He called Allen Tannehill
Harry Carray in his 90s made less mistakes
That was a really weak attempt by Josh Allen.
Solid play by the DT. I don't think anyone is getting through the 3 hole on that play.
He slipped and was rocked
Should have stayed in the shotgun and let Moss lead block
Yes but that plays works 9 outta 10, Simmons just smashed through and Allen went low
I disagree. They needed 3 yards. Yes a first down is good, but you want a play that can score. Getting the extra blocker into a pile that can be driven is a big deal. Goal line touchdowns happen by mismatching the other team. That QB sneak was never getting 3 yards. It was a bad play in the situation.
Knew it was a trap game. Titan's are a bogey team for us especially just before the bye.
Good call, bad execution. Henry had a hell of a game.
GG not mad at the call at all. We thought KC was the team to overcome but little did we know…
LOL tell me about it
Haha! Be the best team, lose to the Titans! Be the worst team, shit on the titans! It’s law or something by now.
We were just the first. You’re going to get everybody’s best game because it’s not a secret you guys are legit now.
Very true. Something I’m not use too.
I still think Allen got the 1st on the play before but holy fuck what a stupid call of 4th down.
It's statistically the best possible call they could've made. Idk why I'm choosing to die on this hill rn
How exactly is that a stupid call? You play to win the game.
His body crossed but not the ball. He had the ball behind his body not in front.
Which is a thing in Tennessee these days
Hey I'm from Mississippi. No judgement here.
They surprisingly had a GREAT angle that showed exactly where he was. For once you really couldn't argue with that spot.
They got the call from the head officethat we couldn't have another game go to OT this week. To bad it was actually a game worth watching OT
Yeah the last thing the NFL needs is more excitement and time for ads and things, i’m sure they HATE that
Josh needed to change into some extra long cleats before taking that snap.
What was McDermott crying about to refs after? Refs aren’t the reason they lost.
look in the mirror mcdermott!
LETS FUCKING GO!
4th and 1 for most decent teams is a 75%er and probably higher for the bills. Plenty of teams have lost with under 30-yard field goals which should be 90%+
A 30 yard FG has a MUCH higher success rate than 75%
75% and then you gotta win in OT which is like 50%
yea it's like 95%, don't tell the Vikings that
Yeah, but then you gotta win OT, which is literally a coin toss
derrick henry is gonna be the GOAT running back when he retires
I know RBs are underappreciated now, but it crazy to me that Henry isn't getting the same hype LT and AP got I remember being a kid and Jamal Lewis & CJ2k got a ton of hype for 2k but Henrys was barely mentioned when he is more talented and carrying his team. Dude is such an underappreciated talent. Top 15 RB all time
