Whenever the Tennessee Titans versus the Buffalo Bills comes up, there are immediately three memories that surface: the comeback game back when the powder blues played in Houston, to "Music City Miracle" that cast the Bills into more than a dozen years of wandering without a return to the playoff promised land and Bud Adams giving the Bills a piece of his mind—and fingers—after beating them in 2009.
That Week 10 contest in 2009 bears the dubious distinction of being Dick Jauron's final game as a head coach, and a huge day for running back Chris Johnson. Johnson rushed for 132 yards on 26 carries and added 9 catches for 100 yards receiving.
A lot has changed for both teams since 2009, but as some things change, some things stay the same. Both teams are owned extremely old dudes who are apparently enemies since one of them played a childish prank on the other in 1964 that the one guy has never forgiven the other for doing. I mean, what else could explain an 86-year-old man letting his birds dance like that?
And let's face it, both teams continue to struggle in landing a franchise quarterback and escape the clutches of NFL mediocri-, I mean, parity.
Heading into a bye which followed by games on the road in New England and Houston, this is as close to a must-win as a Week 7 game can be.
Here's the keys to the game for the Bills. Enjoy, Americans!
