Oh, how much different this matchup could have been. Without one outstanding play by Jairus Byrd, the Bills might have come in at 2-4. But that play has given the Bills opportunity.
"I think going on the road and beating a (Cardinals) team that was 4-1 that has won football games, and the way that we won the football game kind of dire at the end of the game, but kind of sticking it out and winning in overtime I think that can be big for our team just moving forward," said defensive tackle Kyle Williams.
The Bills and Titans could be in for a high scoring game. We're preparing to see Tennessee's dangerous, but under performing, rushing attack against a Bills D that's still getting going. Meanwhile, the Bills offense goes up against the league's 28th ranked defense.
"We have a big test against Tennessee this week then head into a bye week," Williams continued. "We need to keep all the momentum that we have going into the bye week for the second half of our year. If you keep winning, the next week gets bigger, and it gets bigger and it gets bigger."
Tennessee has had their struggles. They're 2-4 with three road losses, but they're starting to kick things into gear. The Titans are coming off an upset win over the Steelers. One way to beat the Titans may be to throw the ball down the field a bit more. Tennessee is just 29th in the league against the pass. It provides ample opportunity for a Bills passing attack that hasn't taken many shots with the deep ball.
"First of all, we have been more in ball control type throwing, picking and choosing times to maybe throw it down the field," explained Chan Gailey. "We are running the ball better this year. We are running it for more yards and running it better so we have not had to rely on the pass as much.
"I think as we get balance back into our offense, we are going to take some shots. We have to. We have to keep the defense honest, but we have to hit the shots when we take them, too."
