The Ravens vs. Colts “Monday Night Football” matchup lived up to the hype in Week 5. Now, fans will get a game similar to that experience as two more AFC playoff teams from last year meet for a Monday night showdown.
These two teams are currently leading their respective divisions and possess two of the better offenses in the league. That said, the Bills have a clear advantage on the defensive side of the ball after limiting Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs to just 20 points last week at Arrowhead Stadium.
Meanwhile, the Titans have struggled to stop and slow down top offenses this year. They were crushed by the Cardinals in Week 1 despite being favored and have played in a lot of high-scoring games. This figures to be one as well, given how well Buffalo is playing at the moment.
Here is everything to know about ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” game for Week 6, including the kickoff time and more.
Who plays on ‘Monday Night Football’ tonight?
- Matchup: Bills at Titans
- Location: Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tenn.
The Bills and the Titans are playing on “Monday Night Football” in Week 6. This will be the fourth consecutive year in which they’ve met during the regular season with the Bills having won two of the last three.
It was the Titans, however, that emerged victorious in 2020. They crushed the Bills 42-16 on a Tuesday night early in the season. Tennessee hadn’t been able to practice much because of a COVID outbreak that infected as many as 23 players at once, but they still manhandled the Bills’ defense and cruised to an easy win.
Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry will lead the Titans’ offense and will hope to find similar success to their 2020 performance. Henry had a particularly jaw-dropping stiff-arm in that game, so the NFL’s current leading rusher will look to continue to run strong.
Meanwhile, Josh Allen and the Bills, who have scored at least 35 points in four straight games, will look to keep their offense hot against a Tennessee defense that has been below average. The Titans are allowing 26 points per game, the ninth-most in the NFL.
