Highlights of the Tennessee Titans at the Buffalo Bills in Week Two of the NFL season.

Josh Allen marked his side's home opener with four touchdown passes, including three to Stefon Diggs, as the Buffalo Bills secured a blowout 41-7 win over the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.

Story of the Game

Allen topped 300 yards passing for the 15th time of his career, completing 26 of his 38 pass attempts for 317 yards, before being rested for the entire fourth quarter with the victory already well secured.

Diggs was the other standout, securing 12 catches for 148 yards, seeing him top 100 yards receiving in each of the receiver's first two games of the season.

Watch Josh Allen's best plays from his four-touchdown performance for the Buffalo Bills match against the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.

The Bills defense, meanwhile, limited the Titans to just 182 yards of total offense and only 12 first downs, returning two sacks and forcing four turnovers, one of which was returned 43 yards by linebacker Matt Milano for a touchdown.

The wheels fell off for the Titans, in particular in the third quarter as they were outscored 24-0. Ryan Tannehill, who finished 11 of 20 for 117 yards, threw interceptions on consecutive possessions and was benched following Milano's pick six. Rookie QB Malik Willis took over but completed only one of four passes for six yards in his action, while he ran the ball four times for 16 yards and lost a fumble.

With victory, the Bills (2-0) exorcised some frustrations of the past, including a 42-16 loss to Tennessee in 2020 and a 34-31 loss last year in which Buffalo squandered a seven-point fourth-quarter lead and Allen was stuffed at the goal line in the final seconds.

The Titans (0-2) open the season with back-to-back defeats for the first time in a decade and with questions over a defense that gave up 313 yards passing a week after allowing 238 yards rushing. Meantime, star running back Derrick Henry was limited to just 25 yards on 13 carries, but did score the team's only points on two-yard TD.

Injuries affected both teams in the contest, the most serious involving Bills cornerback Dane Jackson, who hurt his neck in a troubling collision with a team-mate. He was taken to a hospital for evaluation, the Bills saying Jackson had 'full movement in his limbs'.

What they said... 'They outplayed us, outcoached us'

Bills quarterback, Josh Allen: "When we execute, how we know we're supposed to execute, success typically leads to success.

"We're just trying to be the best version of ourselves.

"It doesn't matter who it's against. Like, that's a good team that we played. For us to go do that was great."

[On Stefon Diggs]. "We know he is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, receiver in the game right now, and I trust him implicitly. I love that guy, he works his tail off."

Titans head coach, Mike Vrabel: "We got our (butts) kicked, plain and simple.

"They outplayed us and they outcoached us, and that's the definition of it. We're going to go back to work and try to figure out how to win a football game."
