Titans have no new positives, game on tonight vs. Bills

The Tennessee Titans are finally returning to the field.

The Titans had no new positive COVID-19 tests in the latest round of testing, which clears them to play against the Bills tonight.

A COVID-19 outbreak within the team caused the Titans’ game last week to be delayed until later in the season, and caused this week’s game to be delayed for a rare Tuesday Night Football game tonight. It wreaked havoc on the NFL schedule, but it finally appears the Titans outbreak is behind the team.

Now the question will be whether the Titans are prepared to play after missing so much preparation time while the team facility was closed. Right now, the Titans and Bills would be the top two playoff seeds in the AFC, so this is a very big game — and now we can finally focus on the football part of it.

  1. Are we to assume that all Titans players will be available? I wonder how many of the players still can’t play, and who they are?

  2. Good thing we’re only at the quarter mark and don’t have to worry about the playoffs just yet

  3. Steelers would be the #1 seed right now buddy

    Incorrect. The Titans and Bills both have an edge based on strength of victory. Whoever wins tonight will have the #1 and the Steelers will move up to #2. The Steelers move to 1 if it’s a tie.

  4. Steelers would be the #1 seed right now buddy

    —————————-

    Two of the Steelers wins are outside the conference (and against NFC East teams, so that probably only count as half points)

    Looking at strength of schedule, Steelers opponents have a combined 3 wins through 5 weeks. Let’s not host the Lombardi trophy just yet buddy.

    Good question, as of now we have 3 players who have been activated off the COVID list. DT Daquon Jones, LS Beau Brinkley, and OT Isaiah Wilson (who was not part of this round of positives). Jones and Brinkley are important, but Wilson hasn’t played all year for us even as a 1st round pick.

    Lol- you’re the one talking seedings in week 5

  9. Isn’t it nice that they broke protocols and were rewarded by giving AJ Brown and Taylor Lewan 2 extra days to heal up to play this game?

  10. I thought this game was already moved to another week. I can’t keep up with all of this schedule juggling…

  11. This game is gonna be tough regardless on the lack of prep. They are a well coached team and can run the ball – something the Bills struggle with. While the lack of prep gives the Bilks an edge, the idea that this is an easy win is pretty far from reality. I expect a 3 point game either way.
