Fastest Recovery in History

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – 11.4 million. That’s how many new jobs the U.S. economy has added since May—when experts were still predicting that the unemployment rate would hit 20 percent and that American job losses would continue to mount for months to come.
 
Instead, President Donald Trump has led what is on track to be the fastest economic recovery in U.S. history, the Council of Economic Advisers says. During the last five months, more than half of all job losses from the pandemic have already been recovered.

Series History between Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills contest brings together two of the original teams of the American Football League, founded by two of the visionaries who helped set in motion one of the most significant eras in football history.

It was in 1960 that K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr.’s then-Houston Oilers and Ralph Wilson, Jr.’s Bills became two of the eight teams that began play in the newly-formed league. Adams, Wilson and the other original AFL owners were dubbed the “Foolish Club” for their choice to accept the seemingly impossible task of competing with the National Football League.
