NFL Rebs Week 6: Hello, AJ Brown

The Mayor of Starkville, Nashville and now Buffalo?

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

It was a quiet week for the NFL Rebs for the most part, but as always, there were some highlights.

AJ Brown was a crucial factor in the Titans' overtime win against the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football. Averaging 13 yards per reception, Brown was able to easily move the chains to get a big win for Tennessee.

In that same game, Dawson Knox started out hot, before suffering a hand injury that ruled him out for the rest of Monday’s game. Before the setback, he had three receptions for 25 yards.
