The Bills continued their scorching hot start to the 2022 NFL season, racing past the Titans on Monday Night Football. Buffalo improved to 2-0 for the third time in four seasons.

Much like Week 1's win over the Rams, Monday's victory was another one for the record books.

Here's the top stats to know after a dominant 41-7 Bills win.

Bills blowout win leads to significant milestones

  • The Bills scored more points in Week 2 (41) than the entire AFC South division combined (40).
