Titans game postponed, setting up long rest ahead of Bills game

Recommended Posts

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

A COVID outbreak has turned into a bye week for the Titans.

In the wake of a growing COVID-19 infection, the week four matchup between the Tennesee Titans and the Pittsburgh Steelers has reportedly been postponed until later in the season. That news comes courtesy of ESPN reporter Adam Schefter. This means the Titans will effectively take a bye week ahead of their week five game against the Buffalo Bills. Of course, that’s assuming the Bills game will be played.

News of the Titans infections broke on Monday following their win over the Minnesota Vikings. The team immediately cancelled in-person meetings, and continued daily testing, but additional cases kept trickling in. On Thursday, another two cases were identified.

In the best case scenario (for NFL football, at any rate), the immediate separation and time off will alleviate any further coronavirus infection. The Titans will isolate their players and coaches, allow them to recover, and the team will be fully-rested to take on the Bills, who will be coming off a westbound trip to battle the Las Vegas Raiders. Worst case, if Titans continue to test positive, the Bills game could be postponed as well, and the NFL’s schedule makers will have their work cut out for them. Either way, it’s a new stressor for the 3-0 Bills, who hope to be one of the best teams in the conference this year.

I really don't think this helps the Titans, I think they will be sluggish and rusty by the time they play us.

If this is a 1 time thing, the fix in the schedule should be pretty easy.  Pittsburgh /Baltimore game gets moved from week 7 to week 8 since they have the same bye week in week 8.  Then Pittsburgh/Tennessee  gets moved to week 7 where Tennessee has their bye originally scheduled.

Hopefully the NFL will restrict team activities for Tenn/Pitt for the rest of the week to minimize any advantage for these teams

It stinks they have extra rest but what sucks the most is that I was liking the fact that we’re getting them after a hard fought divisional game with a physical team (Pittsburgh).
