COACH SHELTON CONTINUED “We had a couple of costly baserunning mistakes that really hurt our chances. Combine them with only 1 hit and it was a bad combination and a frustrating night.

Hours after yet another Tennessee Titans player tested positive for COVID-19, the NFL has finally stepped in to reschedule the team’s Week 5 game against the Buffalo Bills. According to ESPN, the Bills-Titans matchup, originally set for Sunday afternoon, has been postponed to Tuesday at 7. That date is also dependent upon no more positive tests surfacing within the Titans organization, which has seen 23 different players and/or staff contract the virus since the end of September.

As a result of the postponement, the Bills will also have their Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, originally scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 15, tentatively pushed back to Sunday, Oct. 18.
