The Tennessee Titans escaped with a win over the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football. But a win is a win no matter how it comes.

With the win, the Titans improved to 4-2 on the season. Tennessee has now won two straight games.

The loss dropped the Bills to 4-2. This defeat snapped their four-game win streak.

Buffalo suffered their first loss since a Week 1 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This loss is squarely on Bills head coach Sean McDermott and the coaching staff. Instead of going for the potential game-tying field goal, McDermott and the coaching staff asked Josh Allen to go for the first down.

At some point on the fourth-down play, Allen fumbled the ball. This gave the Titans the ball with less than one minute left. They then ran out the clock.

Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill went 18 of 29 for 216 yards. He also threw an interception.

Derrick Henry led the team with 20 carries for 143 yards. He also had three rushing touchdowns.

A.J. Brown had seven receptions for 91 yards. This was his best performance of the season.

Allen went 35 of 47 for 353 yards. He had three touchdown passes and one interception.

Devin Singletary had five carries for 27 yards. Emmanuel Sanders had five receptions for 91 yards.

Henry scored two second-half rushing touchdowns. He first scored on a three-yard rushing touchdown to the left side.

Then, he scored on a 13-yard rush, also to the left side.

Randy Bullock made a 38-yard field goal.

Allen hit Tommy Sweeney for a one-yard touchdown reception. Following the score, Allen attempted to waive off the play.

The play went on, as tight end Dawson Knox hit Allen for the two-point play. Tyler Bass also made a 52-yard field goal.

The Bills led 20-17 at halftime. Allen hit Stefon Diggs for a 14-yard touchdown pass.

Allen also hit Cole Beasley for a 29-yard touchdown reception. Bass also made two field goals.

Henry scored on a 76-yard rushing touchdown. Tannehill also scored on a four-yard rushing touchdown.

Bullock also made a 43-yard field goal in the first half.
