NASHVILLE —The Tennessee Titans return to action in Week 5 to face the Buffalo Bills in a clash of undefeated teams on Tuesday, Oct. 13 (6 p.m., CDT) at Nissan Stadium.

The Titans are 3-0 for the first time since 2008, while the Bills are 4-0 for the first time since 2008. This is the first occasion since Nissan Stadium opened in 1999 in which two undefeated teams after three or more weeks of a season will take the field.

The game was originally scheduled for this Sunday, but the NFL announced on Thursday night the Week 5 matchup was being rescheduled to Tuesday 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."

All tickets purchased will be valid for Tuesday's game. Stadium gates will open at 4 p.m.

Last week's Week 4 scheduled contest between the Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers was also postponed and will be made up on Sunday, Oct. 25, the original date of the Titans' bye.

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 matchup with the Steelers was supposed to be the first game of 2020 that the Titans welcomed fans back to Nissan Stadium. Instead it shifts to this week, with ticket sales to season ticket members being capped at 12.5 percent of the venue's normal capacity. The number of fans will gradually increase over the course of the Titans' coming games with the potential to accommodate 21 percent of the venue's normal capacity under current Center for Disease Control guidelines.

THE BILLS

The Bills kept their record perfect after traveling to Las Vegas and defeating the Raiders 30-23. Their earlier wins came, in order, against the New York Jets, at the Miami Dolphins and against the Los Angeles Rams.

Third-year quarterback Josh Allen passed for 288 yards and two touchdowns and added a rushing touchdown in the win at Las Vegas. For the season, he ranks second in the NFL in passing yards (1,326), passing touchdowns (12) and passer rating (122.7), and he has three total rushing touchdowns.

Sean McDermott is in his fourth season as Buffalo's head coach. The former Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator led the Bills to the playoffs in two of his first three seasons, including a 10-6 record and a wild card playoff berth in 2019.
