Bills vs. Titans live score, updates, highlights from NFL 'Monday Night Football' game

Week 6 of NFL action concludes on “Monday Night Football” with a meeting between the Bills and Titans in Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tenn.

Buffalo appears to be the best team in the league this year, claiming not only a top-six offense (410.4 yards per game) but also the No. 1 defense, surrendering just 251.8 yards per contest. The next-closest team in that category is Cleveland, which gives up 307.7 yards a game.

Buffalo is riding high behind quarterback Josh Allen, who has 288 rushing yards and two scores on top of his 1,370 passing yards and 12 touchdowns. The defense, meanwhile, has forced a league-high 15 turnovers for a plus-11 differential this season.

That said, the Titans have the last victory in this series, beating the Bills handily in 2020, 42-26. In that matchup, they limited eventual 2,000-yard rusher Derrick Henry to just 57 yards, though he did make a highlight reel-worthy play when he stiff-armed Josh Norman into oblivion. How will Henry, who leads the league in carries (142), yards (640) and rushing touchdowns (seven) in 2021, perform against Buffalo?

Second quarter: Titans 17, Bills 13

9:45 p.m.: Timeout, Buffalo (0:53). Bills have it second-and-8 from the 24.

9:45 p.m.: Allen to Diggs for 12 yards to the Tennessee 27. The clock is ticking toward 1 minute left in the half.

9:44 p.m.: Interesting situation here. Titans will want to avoid a late touchdown as the Bills get the ball back after halftime.

9:41 p.m.: Two-minute warning.

9:41 p.m.: Allen withstands the pressure and finds Diggs for a 16-yard gain on third-and-5. Great play there under duress to get a fresh set of downs at the Titans 41.

9:39 p.m.: Allen shows off his own wheels with a 5-yard keeper to convert on second-and-3. Bills driving at their 37.

9:36 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, TITANS. Tannehill keeps it on a zone-read and fights ahead for a 4-yard touchdown, breaking through a would-be Poyer tackle. that makes it 17-13 Titans with 4:23 left in the half.

9:34 p.m.: Lewan is being carted off after getting stabilized. he gives up a thumbs up and then does the “aloha” sign. Hope everything turns out OK.

9:30 p.m.: Scary situation down on the field. Taylor Lewan is down on the field and motionless. He may need to be carted off.

9:29 p.m.: INTERCEPTION, TITANS. Allen is hit from behind by Denico Autry and Kevin Byard picks off the wobbler to return it 16 yards to the Buffalo 11.

9:26 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, TITANS. Tennessee makes the most of Jones’ catch and nets a field goal. Randy Bullock sinks it from 43 yards to make it 13-10 Bills with 5:04 in the quarter.

9:26 p.m.: Tannehill had Jones open but somehow overthrew him. That was a touchdown waiting to happen.

9:25 p.m.: Henry gets a nice stiff arm on Mario Addison but is brought down for a 3-yard loss by Tremaine Edmunds.

9:23 p.m.: A lot to unpack on that play. Titans get a free play because of a Bill offside, then Allen targets Jones downfield. Micah Hyde is called for pass interference, but somehow the ball bounces off his head for Jones to grab it at the Bills 29. Incredible.

9:21 p.m.: Titans are called for holding, though Buffalo again trusts its defense to hold on third-and-8, declining the penalty. Titans coach Mike Vrabel looks exasperated.

9:20 p.m.: Titans back to work at the 21.

9:18 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, BILLS. They finally get to the end zone, with Allen picking on Jenkins to get a 14-yard touchdown pass to Diggs. That makes it 13-7 Bills with 7:54 remaining in the half.

9:17 p.m.: Allen to Sanders again for 19 yards to the Titans 16. Bills are in the red zone and, barring any penalties, can get one more first down without a touchdown.

9:14 p.m.: Titans cornerback Caleb Farley’s down on the ground.

9:13 p.m.: Allen has good protection in the pocket and finds Sanders in the zone for 21 yards to the Tennessee 35.

9:11 p.m.: Bad sequence there for Titans. They get a sack on Allen, but Long Jr. comes in after the play (officials were blowing it dead as he came in) and hit the quarterback late. So instead of third-and-long, Bills have it first-and-10 at the 41.

9:10 p.m.: Back to work for the Bills from their 32.

9:06 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, TITANS. Speak of the devil. Henry bounces off Poyer and rumbles for a 76-yard touchdown run on the first carry of the drive. The PAT makes it 7-6 Titans with 11:20 left in the half.

9:05 p.m.: Titans are back at it from their 24. Offense needs to get something going here.

9:01 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, BILLS. Bass is 2 for 2 on the day, sinking this from 28. It’s 6-0 Bills with 11:39 left to play in the half.

9:01 p.m.: Titans again make a red-zone stop. Allen threw a wobbler to Diggs, who dropped it in the end zone. Titans wanted offensive pass interference against him, but hold regardless.

8:59 p.m.: And now Emmanuel Sanders is called for holding on what would have been a Knox endaround for a touchdown. Bills backed up to the 15.

8:58 p.m.: Jackrabbit Jenkins is called for pass interference, giving Buffalo first-and-goal on the 5.

8:57 p.m.: Allen stands in the pocket and takes a hit by David Long Jr., but delivers it to Diggs for 7 yards on third-and-5 down to the 12.

8:55 p.m.: Allen finds Singletary underneath for a 6-yard gain to convert. Bills still driving at the 24.

8:52 p.m.: Buffalo wastes no time as Allen finds Dawson Knox for an 11-yard gain to the 37. Following that, Singletary 7 yards down to the Tennessee 30 to end the quarter. It’s 3-0 Buffalo, but the Bills have thoroughly outplayed their opponent thus far.

8:51 p.m.: INTERCEPTION, BILLS. Tannehill attempted to find Jones, but got intercepted by safety Jordan Poyer instead. He returns it 17 yards to the Titans 48. Tannehill had Henry free in the flats for what would have been an easy conversion.

8:50 p.m.: Tannehill finds Julio Jones for the first time for 6 yards. He limps off after getting hit immediately.

8:48 p.m.: Tre’Davious White is called for defensive holding, giving the Titans 5 yards and an automatic first down. They take that over an 8-yard completion to Henry.

8:44 p.m.: Oh boy. Titans waste potentially great field position by going for another Music City Miracle attempt. Chester Rogers throws an illegal forward pass to Chris Jackson. That’s a 5-yard penalty at the spot of the foul, which will put Tennessee at the 34.

8:43 p.m.: The defense comes up big for Tennessee, as Harold Landry breaks through a double-team to sack Allen for an 8-yard loss. Buffalo will punt from fourth-and-18 after the three-and-out.

8:38 p.m.: A good return by the Bills is offset by both an illegal block in the back and holding. The Titans accept the holding penalty to give Buffalo the ball at its 21.

8:38 p.m.: Titans can’t convert, and they punt again.

8:36 p.m.: That slip screen to Henry is horribly executed; Henry trips on Nate Davis’ ankle and falls down, though it wouldn’t have mattered considering an illegal man downfield penalty. The Bills decline the penalty to bring up third-and-6.

8:35 p.m.: Cameron Batson looked like he was going to throw the ball laterally a la the Music City Miracle. Thought better of it and was tackled at the 21.

8:32 p.m.: FIELD GOAL, BILLS. Tyler Bass knocks it through from 24 yards out to give the Bills a 3-0 lead with 6:10 in the first quarter.

8:31 p.m.: Titans bend but don’t break, as Rashawn Evans spies Hill and forces him to throw the ball away. Field goal attempt upcoming.

8:30 p.m.: Bills face their first third down of the drive with third-and-3 at the Tennessee 5. They can convert without a touchdown.

8:29 p.m.: The Titans are offside, but Buffalo declines it as Diggs had a 6-yard reception for another first down. Bills driving at the 12.

8:28 p.m.: Allen to Beasley on another quick strike for 12 yards and another first down at the Titans 25. Tennessee has no answer defensively to start.

8:26 p.m.: Great run by Singletary, who avoided contact in the backfield and required three defenders to break him down after a 14-yard carry. First-and-10 Buffalo at the Tennessee 40.

8:25 p.m.: Devin Singletary gets 1 yard for a first-down conversion at the 31; Allen then targets Stefon Diggs for 12 yards out to the Buffalo 42.

8:24 p.m.: Allen goes for a quick strike to Cole Beasley, who gets 9 yards on his first reception of the day.

8:21 p.m.: Tannehill targets Marcus Johnson, but cornerback Levi Wallace breaks up the completion. The Bills will take over at their 21 after Johnny Townsend’s punt goes for 63 yards.

8:19 p.m.: Ryan Tannehill gets a quick shuffle pass out to tight end Anthony Firkser for 11 yards on third-and-11 to get a new set of downs. Per the ESPN broadcast, that’s only the second conversion of third-and-10 or longer allowed by this Buffalo defense on 22 attempts.

8:16 p.m.: The Bills’ kick is short, but the Titans don’t get much out of it. Add to that a 10-yard holding penalty and Tennessee will start at its own 10.

8:15 p.m.: The Bills have won the toss and elected to defer. The Titans will receive the ball to start the game.
