Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans Series at a Glance

New, comments

The Titans lead the all-time series between these two franchises 25-16.  The Titans are 13-6 at home against the Bills and have won the last two meetings.  These two franchises have also played two of the more memorable postseason games in NFL history.  Luckily for me I wasn't and Oiler fan when the Bills had the amazing comeback so my postseason memories are nothing but pleasant against the Bills.  (And yes, it was absolutely a lateral before that debate starts here.)

Buffalo Rumblings has a breakdown of the last 5 regular season meetings here.

We will once again be treated to Ian Eagle and Rich Gannon on the CBS Broadcast.
