The Buffalo Bills are taking on the Tennessee Titans at New Era Field, looking to bounce back after being shut out a week ago. However, it's been the Bills defense that has dominated the game. The Bills have forced 3 turnovers on the Titans offense, leading 10-6 after the third quarter. 

It didn't take long for the Bills to put points up on the board. After Matt Milano recovered a Titans fumble, Josh Allen capped off the drive with a 14-yard touchdown run to give the Bills a 7-0 lead. The Titans did respond with a field goal after having a drive start at the Bills 25 yard line, but Buffalo's defense held on to force Ryan Succop to kick a 27 yard field goal to make it 7-3. 

The Bills then got an interception from Taron Johnson, but the Bills came up empty after punter Corey Bojorquez botched the hold on a field goal attempt. Succop added a 54 yard field goal to help the Titans end the first half with the Bills leading 7-6. 

Buffalo's defense wasn't done yet, as Shaq Lawson wound up stripping the ball from Dion Lewis to set the Bills up for another field goal to extend their lead to 10-6.
