Week 2 grades for the Buffalo Bills against the Tennessee Titans
For the first time this season, the Buffalo Bills had to punt and in fact, did it twice. However, they may want to think about punting more because it seems to work out well for them as the Titans did field either punt cleanly and put the football on the ground. The Bills were only able to recover one of the fumbles but Sam Martin looks to be a great addition to this group.
As for Tyler Bass, he once again was perfect by making both of his field goal attempts, including a long of 49 yards, and all four of his extra point attempts.
One other notable performance on special teams this week was Jamison Crowder, who has done an excellent job as the punt returner the past two weeks. After a return over 20 yards in Week 1, Crowder had four total returns for 41 yards, including a long of 16.
Week 2 Grade: A-
This was a collective win as the Buffalo Bills got big plays from every facet of the game from Josh Allen’s four touchdown passes, Matt Milano’s pick-six, and the defense holding the Titans’ offense to 187 total yards.
Even when the Tennessee Titans stopped the Buffalo Bills’ offense and forced them to punt, the special teams unit came up with big plays like the fumble recovery. These are the type of games where it is tough to point to one specific reason and that is why the Buffalo Bills are considered one of the best teams in the NFL.
Certainly, there will be things to work on for the Buffalo Bills, like the offense improving on third down, but this was as close to a perfect performance as teams will find in the NFL.
Week 2 Grade: A+
