1. Five undefeated teams left in the NFL

There are five undefeated teams left after Sunday's games in Week 5. With the undefeated Bills and Titans set to play on Tuesday, there will be four unbeaten teams left after week five. In the past two seasons, the last remaining undefeated teams, Rams (8-0) in 2018 and 49ers (8-0) in 2019 made it all the way to the Super Bowl. For the Bills, they are looking to start 5-0 for the first time since 1991. It would also be the Bills first five-game win streak since 2004.

2. History of Tuesday games in the NFL

When the Bills play the Titans on Tuesday night it will be the third time since 1946 that an NFL game will be played on a Tuesday. In 1946, the New York Giants beat the Boston Yanks 17-0 at Braves field. This game was going to open up the NFL's 1946 season on Monday, Sept. 30, but was moved to Tuesday because a rainstorm drenched the city of Boston. The Giants won the eastern division that year but lost to the Bears in the NFL championship game. The more recent game was on Dec. 28, 2010 and it was between the Vikings against the Eagles. The game was postponed due to a blizzard in Philadelphia that brought more than a foot of snow to the city. For that game, the teams did not know the game was postponed until an hour before kickoff. The Eagles and the Vikings both lost their next game after playing on a Tuesday, which is something the Bills and Titans want to avoid.

3. Milestones to watch for in Week 5

The Bills have had a promising start to the 2020 season. Starting with a 4-0 record going into Tuesday's game against the Titans and setting new franchise records throughout those first four games. Here are stats and milestones to look for during the game tomorrow. 

  • If the Bills score 30+ points against the Titans, they will have scored 30+ points in four straight games for just the fourth time in franchise history and the first time since 2004. 
  • With 1 receiving touchdown, Gabriel Davis will become the first Bills rookie with touchdown receptions in back-to-back games since Sammy Watkins in 2014.
  • Jordan Poyer will play in his 100th career NFL game on Tuesday. 
  • If Josh Allen has at least a 70% completion percentage, it will mark the third straight game with 70% completion rate (min. 20 att.). That will tie the longest streak in Bills history (Jim Kelly in 1991 and Ryan Fitzpatrick in 2011). 
  • If Josh Norman has a forced fumble in the game, he will become the first Bill to force a fumble in consecutive games since Jerry Hughes in 2018 and the first Bills DB to do so since E.J. Gaines in 2017.
