The Buffalo Bills haven’t finished atop the AFC East since 1995, when they captured the division title for the sixth time in eight years. With the Tom Brady era in New England now over, their path to get back to the top of the mountain is a bit easier. The Bills hope to take the next step on Tuesday when they visit the Tennessee Titans for a contest that was pushed back due to positive COVID-19 tests for members of the home team. Kickoff from Nissan Stadium in Nashville is set for 7 p.m. ET on CBS.
