Tennessee Titans-Buffalo Bills headline Week 2 MNF doubleheader

0

BUFFALO, NY – Monday Night Football is back in Buffalo. The Bills host the Tennessee Titans on Sept. 19 (7:15 p.m. ET, ESPN) for a Week 2 rematch of one of the most exciting matchups of last season that went down in inches.

The encounter will be part of a Monday night doubleheader with former Titans receiver AJ Brown in the spotlight with his new team as the Philadelphia Eagles host the Minnesota Vikings later that night (8:30 p.m. ET, ABC). This will be their first meeting since 2019.

The Eagles are 4-1 in their last five home games on Monday Night Football, while the Vikings have won two consecutive Monday Night games, both at the Chicago Bears, in the previous two seasons.

This will be the fifth straight season the Bills and Titans have met; the Titans have hosted three of the previous four matchups, including last season’s Monday Night Football meeting. The teams split in those four games.

Tennessee came away with a 34-31 win last year, but just barely. The game came down to a quarterback by Josh Allen in quarter-and-inch with less than 30 seconds on the clock which ended up being a bit short. Titans running back Derrick Henry rushed for 143 yards, including 76 on a touchdown run in the second quarter.

This offseason, the Bills added former Titans starting offensive lineman Rodger Saffold in free agency.

Buffalo will host Monday Night Football for a third straight year following a 14-10 loss to the New England Patriots at home last year. The Bills have only hosted two regular season games on Monday nights (in 2014 and 2018) in the past 11 years. Buffalo has lost four consecutive home games on Monday Night Football, with their last victory in 1994 against the Denver Broncos.

The Titans are 4-1 in their last five Monday Night Football games, dating back to the 2017 season.

The rest of the 2022 NFL schedule will be announced Thursday at 8 p.m. ET.
