We can’t rate this match as an unfortunate loss for Buffalo Bills. Josh Allen and his squad had a good game, but were put to the test by Derrick Henry and the Titans. Tennessee Titans haven’t looked particularly impressive this season, but all thanks to one man, they picked up a huge win.

The definition of the word single-handedly should change to Derrick Henry vs Buffalo Bills. The Bills came off a massive win against Kansas City Chiefs, and their momentum did not allow them to slow down at all. After taking a 6-0 lead, courtesy of two field goals, they had their defense humiliated by Derrick Henry.

A 76-yard dash from the 27-year-old running back yielded six points and a temporary lead against the Bills. Later on in the game, Henry scored another touchdown by literally barreling his way past the Bills defense. He made it infinitely clear that getting in his way would result in either serious bodily harm, or seven points for the Titans.

Make no mistake when I say Buffalo Bills’ offense is the most destructive in the NFL. They’ve surpassed Tampa Bay, Kansas City, Seattle and even the Cardinals in establishing themselves as an attacking force. From the blitz till the first down, right up to the touchdown, they remain relentless.

We witnessed this in the third quarter, as three Bills players collaborated to convert a two-point attempt, with Josh Allen finishing off the move. However, they still could not deal with Derrick Henry, who blasted his way past them to seal the victory for Tennessee.

This season, many teams have emerged as surprise division leaders, making the playoff picture quite interesting. Two of those teams competed in a firecracker of a match last night. Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans squared off in a clash for the ages, but both teams have a ton of positives to pick up after the match.

First, the losing team has nothing to fear. Leading the division quite comfortably, Buffalo Bills look the favorites to qualify for the playoffs. With Josh Allen firing on all cylinders, we could look at a potential Super Bowl run for the New York based outfit.

As for the Titans, they have a terrific offensive line to deal with the tougher defences in the league. With a comfortable seat at the top of AFC South, the Titans look like they will be a genuine menace in the playoffs.
