With the current health situation, the National Football League has had to embrace, adapt, and implement a survival mentality when it comes to scheduling games. Games that have been impacted by this season’s overall circumstances have had to be shifted as a result. With that being said, the game between the Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans that was slated for Sunday afternoon will now be a rare Tuesday Night Football game that will conclude Week 5. We’ll tell you what time the game is on, who is playing, and how to watch it. Additionally, we’ll give you a preview so you know what to expect from Tuesday night’s matchup between two of the AFC’s most physical teams.

What to expect from Titans vs. Bills
With the Kansas City Chiefs losing to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, the Bills are now firmly in the conversation of being one of the best teams in the AFC, thanks in large part to Josh Allen’s development.
It was fair to debate whether Allen was going to work as an NFL quarterback after his first two seasons as a professional. His incredible athleticism has always been there, and it often flashed in his first two seasons, but he was far from being refined as a passer and it looked as if he may never be able to reach the high ceiling that his athletic ability provided.
However, five games into the 2020 season, Allen has taken several steps forward in his development, and the Bills have suddenly become one of the league’s toughest offenses to stop. Buffalo is just one of seven teams who are averaging more than 30 points per game on offense this season. Meanwhile, their defense that was heralded as one of the NFL’s best before the season, hasn’t come close to living up to the production of the offense.
On the other side, Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry, and the Titans will try to take advantage of an inconsistent Bills defense to try to steal a win on Tuesday Night Football in Week 5. Unfortunately for Tennessee, they haven’t played a game in the last two weeks, derailing what was once a promising 3-0 start to the season.
If the Titans can get back on track on Tuesday Night Football in Week 5, they could join the Steelers and Packers with a 4-0 record. However, if they stumble, it will be the Bills who maintain their 100% record, advancing to 5-0.
Buffalo has the advantage here against the Titans as Tennessee looks to get back into the mix. Allen and the Bills offense will be too much for the Titans to handle given the lack of practice over the past couple of weeks.
Tuesday Night Football, Week 5 Prediction: Bills win 34-21
