NASHVILLE – The Titans vs Buffalo Bills game originally scheduled for this weekend now has a new date – Tuesday, October 13.
The Week 5 game is scheduled to kick off at 6 p.m. CDT at Nissan Stadium, and it will be televised on CBS.
All tickets purchased will be valid for Tuesday's game. Stadium gates will open at 4 p.m.
The NFL made the scheduling announcement on Thursday night. The Titans have dealt with a number of positive COVID-19 tests since the team's Week 3 game at Minnesota. Per the league, the scheduling decision was made "to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel and in consultation with medical experts."
Titans coach Mike Vrabel said earlier this week his team is ready to return.
"Our guys prepared for the season, they want to play," Vrabel said. "I know they are anxious to get back, to get out on the practice field, and to continue to play games. And to compete against a very good Buffalo team that is 4-0. … We know the challenge, and that is where our focus is."
The Titans facility currently remains closed but is expected to open over the weekend, pending no further positive COVID-19 tests, as the Titans begin preparations for the undefeated Bills.
Following a bye last weekend, the Titans, currently 3-0, are scheduled to play 13 straight games to close out the 2020 regular season.
