The Buffalo Bills somehow defeated the Tennessee Titans late on Sunday.

The Buffalo Bills pulled out a victory late on Sunday.

No LeSean McCoy, no Karlos Williams, no Sammy Watkins, and practically no offense in the first half for the Buffalo Bills. Yet, somehow Buffalo escaped Tennessee with a 14-13 victory. 

In the first half, it looked like a game that the Tennessee Titans were destined to win. The Titans were moving the ball on the Bills and their defense looked like the '85 Bears. Yet, at halftime the Bills were only down 3-0.

After Denarius Moore fumbled a punt return and the Titans went up 10-0, the Bills woke up. Actually, Tyrod Taylor woke up and carried the Bills offense on his back. On the nine play, 80 yard drive, Taylor ran the ball for 53 yards and a touchdown on three carries. To Tennessee's credit, the Titans marched up the field on the Bills and responded with a field goal of their own. The defense holding Tennessee to three points gave the Bills a chance and Taylor made the most of that opportunity. 

This time, Buffalo marched 80 yards on eight plays. On 3rd and 23, Taylor scrambled for 24 yards and the Bills picked up an additional 15 yards on a horsecollar penalty. Taylor had to leave for one play, but when he returned he hit Chris Hogan on a 46 yard pass completion. On third and goal from the two, Taylor connected with Hogan again and Dan Carpenter connected on his extra point attempt. The quarterback finished the game with 109 yards passing and 76 yards rushing. 

The game became interesting late after Corey Graham drew a penalty for unnecessary roughness. A replay showed that Graham led with his shoulder to break up the play. Tennessee still ended up punting to the Bills, but Buffalo couldn't put the game away.

On their final drive, Marcus Mariota tried to connect with Kendall Wright, but cornerback Stephon Gilmore made a break on the ball and intercepted the rookie. 

Despite a horrendous start, Taylor and the Bills pulled off their own Music City Miracle on Sunday.
