After a dominant showing in week one against the Rams, the Buffalo Bills return to Orchard Park for their home opener. The Bills will again be in primetime on Monday Night Football as they take on the Tennessee Titans– a team that has become somewhat of a nemesis for these Bills.
The Titans have taken the last two matchups in this series, but both of those games were in Nashville, and after Week 1, it looks like these two squads could be headed in different directions. Here are four keys to victory the Buffalo Bills must follow if they want to remain undefeated in the 2022 season.
4 keys to success for the Buffalo Bills in Week 2 against the Titans
Establish the run
Establishing the run to secure a victory isn’t all too familiar for these Buffalo Bills, but their former offensive coordinator Brian Daboll exposed some flaws in this Titans’ run defense a week ago.
As the Bills run a similar scheme to the one Daboll has taken to New York, the Bills should have the playbook and the personnel to follow his recipe. On two of the Giants’ three touchdown drives, they picked up over 85% of their yards on the ground. They totaled 238 yards on the ground for the day.
The Titans have stalwart Jeffery Simmons on this interior, but the rest of this front 7 leaves much to be desired. The Bills should be able to rotate Devin Singletary and James Cook in this game and have lots of success running outside the tackles against this 3-4 defense. Singletary has been the Bills best running back since the stretch run last year, and Monday Night would be a great time to get him heavily involved in the game plan.
