    The Buffalo Bills (4-8) got a major upset win in a high scoring game against the Tennessee Titans (8-4) in week 13, winning on a Rian Lindell field goal with 4 seconds remaining. http://www.easports.com/media/play/video/62712061

    The first quarter was a defensive contest, neither team managing to score in the opening 8 minutes. But on the first play of the second quarter, Lee Evans would break a tackle and go 87 yards for the first TD of the game, and there was no looking back from there.

    Tennessee would score immediately on a 56 yard screen pass to Chris Johnson, and would then force a turnover and kick a 46 yard field goal to take a 10-7 lead. Buffalo answered with a screen pass TD of their own, 74 yards to CJ Spiller to make it 14-10, but the Titans would respond with a long drive and a 7 yard TD pass to Nate Washington. http://www.easports.com/media/play/video/62711562 Finally, the Bills would kick a 30 yard field goal to end the half, leaving the game tied at 17-17.

    Buffalo started the third quarter with the ball and scored on a 13 yard run by Spiller to take back the lead, but the game was quickly tied again with a 43 yard TD run from Johnson. The Titans would score again on a 17 yard pass to Marion Barber to make the score 31-24 heading into the final quarter.

    The Titans scored first on a 1 yard run by FB Ahmard Hall to give themselves a 14 point lead, but the Bills weren't ready to quit on the game yet. Spiller scored his third TD of the game on a 78 yard catch, then Evans tied the score on a 49 yard TD of his own. http://www.easports.com/media/play/video/62711745 As was the case all day, the Titans responded to the challenge, scoring on the first play from scrimmage with a 66 yard pass to WR Damian Williams. But once again, the Bills fought back, Evans making an incredible catch in the back of the endzone for a 44 yard TD to tie the game at 45-45 with 1:45 to play. http://www.easports.com/media/play/video/62711952

    Finally, the Titans would be forced to punt, setting up Lindell for the game winning field goal that just barely made it over the bar. Time would run out on the Titans during the ensuing kick return.

    CJ Spiller and Chris Johnson both scored 3 TD's to make strong cases to be game MVP, but QB Robert You stole the show in the one, going 18/29 for a career hign 534 yards with 5 TD's and 2 interceptions.
