Tennessee Titans Starts Preseason with a Victory over the Bills

Tennessee TitansThe Tennesee Titans had a wonderful start on the NFL preseason as they imposed themselves over the Buffalo Bills, winning the Hall of Fame game 21-18 on Sunday night. Titans quarterback, Kerry Collins, came through with seven of ten passes to add up 82 yards to their favor. On the other hand, Gibran Hamdan, Bills quarterback, connected 11 of the 13 passes he performed and accumulated 89 yards.

Tennessee immediately responded with a great offensive play and took lead of the game. A spectacular 40 yard run by punter AJ Trapasso set the score at 7-0 with an extra point kick by Rob Bironas. Towards the end of the first quarter, LenDale White helped give the Titans a greater advantage with a dash for three yards that capped an offensive run that spread 73 yards in 11 plays and ate up 5:07 on the clock.

But it was still too soon to take the Bills as defeated as they changed the story on the scoreboard at the beginning of the second quarter with a field goal by Ryan Lindell and placed the score at 3-14.  Ten seconds before halftime, the Bills came at it again with an effective offensive series and managed another 47 yards culminating with another field goal by Lindell.

The Bills dominated the second half as the substitutions took place. On the third quarter, they took three more points off the difference in the score with a 52 yard kick by Lindell. Buffalo’s defense also did their job and forced Trapasso to step out of bounds as he tried his useless passes towards his end zone teammates. Nevertheless, Buffalo did not have enough time and the scoreboards at Fawcett Stadium ended in a 19-21 Tennessee lead, and at the same time initiated the NFL preseason.
