5. Bills turn up the volume in Tennessee

The Bills are headed to the Music City for the first time since 2015 and they’ll have plenty of reinforcements coming along for the ride. Staging a complete Nashville takeover, the Bills faithful will be out in full force all weekend long, sporting their best, red, white and blue gear. Home to two major Bills Backers chapters – the Nashville Bills Backers and the Downtown Nashville Bills Backers – fans will feel right at home in this Tennessee city. Those making the trip can connect with their fellow Bills supporters by visiting one the popular Bills Backers locations. For more information on chapters in the area, click here.

4. Bravo, Beasley

In his short stint with the team, Bills newcomer Cole Beasley has already proven himself a reliable offensive target. Leading the Bills in receptions with 24 on the season, Beasley is on the verge of hitting a franchise milestone. With seven or more catches against the Titans, the veteran wide receiver will become the first Bills player to tally that stat in three straight games since Lee Evans’ four-game streak in 2006. He’d also be just the fourth player in team history to do so.

3. Encore for "Tre’ White & the Tre-Ettes"

The Bills DB band is back together this weekend and they’re ready to hit the field and put on another show. With third-year corner Tre’ White leading the pack, and the league in limiting opposing QBs to a 16.9 passer rating (according to Next Gen stats, min. 15 targets), the Bills secondary and whole defensive unit has been solid when it comes to several critical categories. Currently, Leslie Frazier’s squad is second in the NFL rankings with a 78.5 opposing passer rating and No. 1 in limiting their competition to 250 passing yards or less for 12 straight outings.

2. Setting the tone

The Bills defense isn’t the only group that’s made waves so far this season. The offense, now in its second year under offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, has compiled five straight games with 370 or more yards and has a chance to take their place in the record books if they can make it six. If they do, they’ll own the second longest streak in team history – second only to a 1964 AFL Championship winning Bills offense that strung together a seven-game stint.

1. Music to the ears

Up against their third AFC opponent of the young season, the Bills are looking to return home to Western New York with another tally in the win column. With a victory, Buffalo will have claimed wins in their first three road games of the season for the first time since 1993 and go into the bye week with a 4-1 record in the process.
