NFL: Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Week 6 comes to a close with an AFC showdown between two teams expected to compete for postseason play. There may not be a team playing better football right now than the 4-1 Buffalo Bills. Last week, the Bills wiped the floor with the Kansas City Chiefs, but they’ve admitted faced a pretty soft schedule outside of that game.

Things are a little less optimistic for the 3-2 Tennessee Titans. Their wins have come against the Jaguars, Colts and Seahawks, and they have a pretty ugly loss on their resume (Jets). They don’t exactly look like last year’s 11-5 squad, but there is plenty of season left to right the ship... and they’re not exactly in a bad spot right now seeing as the rest of the AFC South has a losing record.

In other words, you’re almost certainly looking at two playoff teams come January and this could very well be a preview of an postseason bout between these two teams. So come join us for some Monday Night Football to close out the week of football.
