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.

Titans-Eagles Postgame Quotes

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Head Coach Jeff Fisher (opening statements)

I have kind of said that quite often that your opponent is different every game, it is different every situation, every circumstance is different. So, with that being the case you find different ways to win ballgames and we found a way to win this game today with 27 fourth quarter points.

That’s a very, very talented football team. You know, I’m proud of our guys because we hung in there. They were inside the five–yard line with a chance to go up by 16. And we make a play, knock the ball loose and that was a really huge turning point for us in the ball game.

But, we came through it healthy. We are fortunate to sneak a win away from a really talented team. And I very proud of these guys from what they have done over the last month with three of four on the road and then the Monday night and the short week and find a way to beat a team like Philly is good. So, we have to put it behind us and move on because we got a huge challenge this coming week. «Read the rest of this article»
