Orchard Park. N.Y. (WKBW) - As the game clock hit 0:00, Bills fans breathed a sigh of relief. Stephen Hauschka hit a 46-yard field goal as time expired as the Buffalo Bills beat the Tennessee Titans 13-12 in week five of the regular season.
With the win, the Bills are now 2-3 overall and picked up their first win this season at New Era Field.
Yes the Bills got a win, but for the most part, the team's offense struggled to capitalize on a few opportunities. The first drive was their best drive of the day after QB Josh Allen and company capitalized off a Titans turnover and turned it into a 14-yard rushing touchdown by the rookie QB. After that though, the offense couldn't do much of anything.
Allen finished the day just 10-19 for 82 yards and an interception. On the ground, he ran four times for 19 yards and a touchdown. His three rushing scores on the year are the most in team history by a Bills quarterback in their rookie season.
Running back LeSean McCoy, who didn't get many touches through the first four weeks, got a much bigger workload on Sunday. McCoy carried the ball 24 times for 85 yards but is still looking for his first touchdown of the season.
The bright side was the Bills defense once again game to play. Johnson recorded the lone interception on the day while Matt Milano and Jordan Poyer both recovered a fumble each (Tremaine Edmunds and Shaq Lawson were credited with forcing them). Trent Murphy recorded the lone sack.
The Bills are back on the road next Sunday when they visit the Houston Texans. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
