Both returning AFC playoff teams are undefeated early this season. The Titans are 3-0 with victories over the Denver Broncos, Jacksonville Jaguars and Minnesota Vikings; the Bills are 4-0 after beating the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Los Angeles Rams and Las Vegas Raiders.
In last year's postseason, the Titans made it to the AFC Championship game and lost to the eventual Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, while the Bills were knocked out in the wild card round by the Houston Texans.
This year, Tennessee and Buffalo again look like serious contenders.

Tennessee Titans vs Buffalo Bills Prediction
Despite their undefeated record, things have been thrown into disarray for the Titans. Even if the players and coaching staff come into Tuesday's game fully focused, COVID-19 could still play a hand in Tennessee losing for the first time this season thanks to some key players being sidelined.
They still have the NFL's most dominant running back in Derrick Henry and they'll be at home in Nissan Stadium, but the Titans have a lot of things working against them.
The Bills were good last season, but they've been surprisingly good this season with quarterback Josh Allen playing as well as anyone at the position in the NFL. Receiver Stefon Diggs has been a game-changer since coming over to Buffalo from the Minnesota Vikings.
