After being on the losing end of some lopsided decisions Tennessee Titans T-Shirt , an offensively challenged, field-goal-dominated 13-12 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday is all that mattered."Two-and-three is a lot better than 1-4," Poyer said, referring to the Bills record. "It's never ugly when you win."Stephen Hauschka overcame a botched field-goal attempt in the final minutes of the first half by hitting a 46-yard attempt as time expired. Running back LeSean McCoy broke from a September slump with 85 yards rushing 鈥?matching the combined total from his first three games.And Poyer helped anchor an injury-depleted secondary on a defense that forced three turnovers, held the Titans to 221 yards and limited them to scoring four field goals.Buffalo bounced back from a 22-0 loss at Green Bay last weekend. Its defense showed improvement after surrendering 75 points over six quarters, starting with a 47-3 season-opening loss at Baltimore, followed by the first half of a 31-20 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers."I think there was a glimpse of it," defensive tackle Kyle Williams said in suggesting the young, patchwork Bills are finding a hint of their identity.The Titans (3-2) took a step backward in having a three-game win streak snapped, and squandered a chance for their best start since winning their first 10 games in 2008.Quarterback Marcus Mariota failed to show the flair he displayed last week in rallying the Titans to a 26-23 overtime win over the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. Mariota finished 14 of 26 for 129 yards passing and an interception against Buffalo.The Titans crossed midfield four times, with each drive ending with Ryan Succop hitting field goals."Not very good. Yeah, I mean we left one out there today Tennessee Titans Hats ," Mariota said. "If you're not ready to play, it doesn't matter who you're playing."The Titans' best chance of finding the end zone slipped through their fingers early in the fourth quarter.Facing third-and-4 at Buffalo's 23, Mariota avoided the pass rush and scrambled to his left, where he lobbed to receiver Nick Williams, who was wide open in the end zone. Williams had the pass drop through his hands while attempting to make an over-the-shoulder catch.Tennessee settled for Succop hitting a 39-yard field goal to cut Buffalo's lead to 10-9.Bills quarterback Josh Allen was hardly better. The rookie first-round pick finished 10 of 19 for 82 yards and an interception, but did open the scoring on a 14-yard touchdown scamper.Allen's interception nearly cost the Bills midway through the fourth quarter. Late in finding Andre Holmes to his right, Allen's pass was tipped and intercepted by Adoree' Jackson at the Tennessee 46.The Titans settled for Succop hitting a go-ahead 50-yard field goal after Mariota fumbled and was fortunate to have the ball bounce off his foot and roll out of bounds.The Bills responded with an 11-play, run-dominated drive that covered the final 4:43. McCoy and Ivory combined for 43 yards."That's how it's supposed to be," McCoy said, referring to a run-oriented game plan in which he had a season-best 24 carries. "We stuck to it."BOTCHED CHANCE IThe Bills botched a 30-yard field-goal attempt in the second quarter when rookie holder/punter Corey Bojorquez caught the snap and inexplicably stood up before suddenly kneeling in a bid to place the ball. Bojorquez then threw an incompletion.Bojorquez hurt his right shoulder but returned for the second half.Bojorquez said he misunderstood what he heard from the coaches.Hauschka, meantime, had an inkling he might get a chance to win the game."The pace of the game Tennessee Titans Hoodie , I was going to be ready for it, and I wanted that opportunity," he said. "I'm glad I got a shot at it."BOTCHED CHANCE IIThe Titans followed Buffalo's missed opportunity by settling for Succop matching a career high by hitting a 54-yard field goal as time expired. They had three timeouts left when penalized for delay of game while facing a third-and-4 at Buffalo's 26. They were backed up again on the next snap when Trent Murphy sacked Mariota for a 5-yard loss.TURNOVERSBills rookie linebacker Tremaine Edmunds and defensive end Shaq Lawson had forced fumbles, while rookie cornerback Taron Johnson had an interception. Buffalo has eight takeaways (five forced fumbles and three interceptions) in its past three games.Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott acknowledged he and GM Brandon Beane have considered signing 12-year veteran quarterback Derek Anderson, but stressed "nothing is final at this point." McDermott and Beane were formerly with Carolina, where they both became familiar with Anderson, who spent the previous seven seasons with the Panthers. Buffalo is down to Allen and second-year player Nathan Peterman at quarterback after trading A.J. McCarron to Oakland on Sept. 1.INJURIESTitans: Two-time Pro Bowl LT Taylor Lewan did not return after hurting his foot in the second quarter. Titans were missing two starters with S Kenny Vaccaro (right elbow) and LB Wesley Woodyard (shoulder) inactive.Bills: Had just three healthy safeties in their lineup with starter Micah Hyde (groin) and backup Rafael Bush (shoulder) inactive.UP NEXTTitans: Host Baltimore on Oct. 14.Bills: At Houston on Oct. 14 for fourth road game in six weeks.Titans Fan Guide: The Premiere Edition Florida Atlantic at #7 Oklahoma Noon Fox- The Lane Kiffin Show travels to Norman to take on another young prodigy coach in Lincoln Riley. FAU has been getting some buzz as a top Group of 6 program that could go undefeated. Oklahoma has to replace its Heisman winner Baker Mayfield and some key pieces off of its defense so Kiffin could do some damage calling plays. OU QB Kyler Murray has been named the starter for his final season before going to baseball full time next year. He isn’t Mayfield but is an adequate replacement nonetheless. FAU’s OC is just 25 years old. Florida Atlanta prospect to watch1. Devin Singletary 5’9 200 RB Junior- The best running back that no one is talking about. He had a monstrous 2017 with 1,918 yards and 32 touchdowns. Really blew up as a sophomore under Lane Kiffin’s guidance. If he has another year like last year, expect him to declare early.Oklahoma prospect to watch1.
 Rodney Anderson 6’1 219 RB RS Junior- Anderson burst onto the scene last year under new head coach Lincoln Riley. He’s an excellent runner who can hit singles and doubles instead of going for the home run every time. He does have the home run in his arsenal. Lateral agility is a plus. Solid at finding the holes his OL sets up for him. Patience is a virtue and he lives up to it. Tries hard in pass pro. Doesn’t have the top end speed. #17 West Virginia vs. Tennessee 3:30 PM CBSLocation: Bank of America Stadium Charlotte, NC- The Mountaineers and Volunteers will meet in Charlotte to determine who has the better military themed tradition and to play a game in the middle of it. Tennessee had some “issues” with its coaching search but likely found the right man for the job in Jeremy Pruitt. He will be tested by West Virginia’s Air Raid offense right off the bat. Tennessee is in yet another rebuilding effort so expect WVU to take advantage. Then again, WVU’s defense isn’t the greatest in the world so there may be some plays to be made. West Virginia prospects to watch1. Will Grier 6’1 214 QB RS Senior- Grier is one of the best pocket passers in the class. He makes everything seem so effortless in terms of moving the pocket, making the right reads Cheap Customized Tennessee Titans Jerseys , and has enough arm talent to make the throws. Has enough athleticism to make things work when things are not on schedule. Footwork is a plus. The frame is a question that needs answering he’s listed at 6’1 214. Offensive scheme does not do him any favors as he plays in the Air Raid offense. Tennessee prospects to watch1. Johnathan Kongbo 6’5 264 EDGE RS Senior- Kongbo is finally a senior this year. His development mirrors the program’s inconsistencies. He should finally put it together this year under defensive mastermind and HC Jeremy Pruitt. It will be interesting to watch him develop. 2.Trey Smith 6’6 320 OL Sophomore - Smith has been the stalwart lineman everyone predicted that he would be when he was a five star recruit. Unfortunately, he was sidelined with blood clots in his lungs for some time this spring and summer. Fortunately, he has been cleared to return but it bears watching going forward. Has one more year left to play after 2018. #14 Michigan at #12 Notre Dame 7:30 PM NBC- These two long time rivals meet once more after a long hiatus due to “scheduling conflicts”. Michigan boasts an elite defense under legendary DC Don Brown and a QB that could work in Shea Patterson (Ole Miss transfer). Jim Harbaugh really needs a big year to get another year in Ann Arbor. Notre Dame must replace their standout offensive linemen who graduated to the NFL. It should be a fun game in the trenches. Michigan prospects to watch1. Rashan Gary 6’4 281 DL Junior- Gary was the number one ranked recruit in his class. He’s a beast inside and should have a nice year in 2018 before he likely declares early. One of the best defensive tackles in the country in a really loaded draft eligible class.2. Devin Bush, Jr 5’11 222 LB Junior- Bush is a force to be reckoned with in both the middle and outside. He’s undersized for the position but is very fundamentally sound. A bowling ball of energy. Father is Devin Bush, Sr who stood out as a linebacker for Florida State during the dynasty years. Notre Dame prospect to watch1. Te’Von Coney 6’0 240 LB Senior- Fundamentally sound. Technician. Plus athlete that can go sideline to sideline in a hurry. The leader of the rebuilt Irish defense. Louisville vs. #1 Alabama 8 PM ABCLocation: Camping World Stadium Orlando, FL- The brash Cardinals meet the reigning national champion Crimson Tide in Orlando. The last time we saw the Tide was when they caused Georgia yet another heartbreak in the title game. Alabama has to replace a ton of talent on their defense but has talent waiting in the wings to take over as usual. I expect Louisville to test the green secondary of Alabama early and often even though they are breaking in a new QB themselves. There’s also the QB “controversy” that has all of college football talking for Bama. Both Jalen Hurts and presumptive starter Tua T will play. Expect the Tide to win a close one. Louisville prospects to watch1. Jaylen Smith 6’4 223 WR Senior- The Cardinals’ leading receiver returns for an encore sans the electrifying Lamar Jackson. Excellent route runner who is technically sound and just knows how to get open. Could be a high draft pick if things break right for him. Teams will fall in love with his measureables. Alabama prospects to watch1. Damien Harris 5’10 216 RB Senior- Football IQ is very good. He’s very instinctive as a runner and knows where and how to attack a defense. Takes what he can get and goes down. Knows what he is and doesn’t deviate from that much. A power back. The biggest knock is that he doesn’t have that home run speed to run away. Straight line runner with very little lateral agility. 2. Raekwon Davis 6’7 303 DL Junior- He got next. The latest in a long line of standout defensive linemen for the Tide who patiently waited his turn to shine. He was a terror to guard against as a sophomore and should be the same in 2018. One of the best defensive linemen in the nation regardless of class. He’s #good. 3. Mack Wilson 6’0 231 LB Junior- See above except for being a linebacker. Rashaan Evans who? Wilson is very talented in his own right and will look to take the reins from the Titans’ latest first round pick. He stood out as a sophomore in extended playing time. Should be a force again. Expect to declare early.

The best receiver duo in the nation. Texas Tech has WR TJ Vasher as well. Expect a shootout.
