The Bills honored the great Bill Polian with a game that early on resembled the famous no punt game.
But in the end it was a lead that slipped away, a reminder of how much different this team is from Polian's great teams.
Polian accepted a spot on the Wall of Fame.
This game had three touchdowns in just 25 seconds.
After the Bills scored, Chris Johnson took on long in the first quarter. He finished with 195 rushing yards on the day.
Brad Smith had the answer on the ensuing kickoff. He finds a hole, beats the kicker, and is gone, 89 yards to pay dirt. That made for three TD's in 25 seconds.
The Titans had a one point half time lead.
First play of the second half was costly. Ryan Fitzpatrick was sacked and lost the fumble leading to another Titans touchdown.
Bills down 28-20. Fitzpatrick hits Donald Jones over the middle, a bullet for a 15 yard TD pass. Bills pull within one point.
Late in the third quarter, Fitzpatrick does it again. Similar play, hitting Steve Johnson this time. Fitz becomes the fourth Bills QB to reach 70 career TDs.
As the Bills are trying to run out the clock, they have 3rd and 7. Fitzpatrick with an ill-advised pass that gets intercepted by Titan Jason McCourty.
The turnover led to a Matt Hasselbeck to Nate Washington TD.
The Bills lose a late one, falling to 3-4 on the season.
Titans 35, Bills 34.
Up next for Buffalo is a bye week.
