Can the Buffalo Bills bounce back and take down the Tennessee Titans on home soil? Let’s see what Madden 19 has to say.

Last week’s Madden 19 score: Buffalo 16, Green Bay 13

Last week’s real-life score: Green Bay 22, Buffalo 0

Overall Madden 19 prediction record: 3 for 4

Suffice it to say, things did not go according to plan last week, as the Buffalo Bills were manhandled by Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. The offense looked woeful, while the defense did not fare all that much better.

With the Bills now sitting at 1-3, is this week’s matchup versus the 3-1 Tennessee Titans already a “must-win” game?

Let’s see what EA Sports’ Madden 19 thinks might happen!

BUFFALO, NY (Oct 7) – Cloudy skies are the name of the game for this Week 5 matchup at New Era field.

The game is the culmination of a Buffalo Bills alumni weekend, which sees plenty of ex-Bills in attendance. The Bills decide to go with their standard blue-on-white getup for the occasion.

Much to the delight of Bills fans, rookie quarterback Josh Allen starts the game off like a house on fire. With the aid of a reasonably effective running game courtesy of LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory, Allen is able to find enough time to pick apart the talented Titans secondary.

The 10 play, 73-yard drive is punctuated with a beautifully thrown 16-yard touchdown pass to tight end Charles Clay on a post pattern.

End of first quarter score: Buffalo 7, Tennessee 0

The Bills defense is galvanized by their young quarterback’s play, and proceed to consistently put the heat on Marcus Mariota throughout the first half.

Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier (or perhaps Sean McDermott) dials up several blitzes from all angles, leading to three first-half sacks. Buffalo is able to capitalize on the great starting field position by extending their lead to 10 with a Steven Hauschka 43-yard field goal

End of second quarter score: Buffalo 10, Tennessee 0

The Bills are brought back down to reality early in the third quarter, as Mariota is able to gain healthy chunks of yardage on two designed quarterback scramble plays to keep the drive alive. Despite not getting help from his running backs in the ground game, the University of Oregon product manages to move his team up the field with quick passes to his agile wide-outs.

The drive culminates in a 41-yard touchdown pass to Corey Davis, in which the receiver high points a ball over out of position rookie safety Siran Neal.

End of third quarter score: Buffalo 10, Tennessee 7

Much like the previous three quarters, the fourth quarter is a defensive battle. Defensive end Jerry Hughes begins to put multiple pressures on Mariota, forcing consecutive three-and-outs. Although Allen is not as sharp as he was early on in the game, he, like Mariota, is able to move the chains with the aid of his mobility.

Perhaps the biggest moment of the game happens with a shade under three minutes left in the game, where Allen rolls out to his right and finds an open Jason Croom for 23-yards on on a third-and-13.

Final score: Buffalo 10, Tennessee 7.

Next. Three keys to a victory over the Titans. dark

Player of the game: Charles Clay – six catches for 75 yards, and one touchdown.
