Bills Titans Football

Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry (22) carries the ball against Buffalo Bills cornerback Josh Norman (29) in the second half on Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2020, in Nashville, Tenn.

To the victor, go the spoils, according to the old saying.

And, well, they’ve had quite a couple of weeks in Nashville.

So Jim Wyatt, a longtime Titans beat writer who now works for the team’s website, harkened back to the legendary day of the Bills to begin his story on Tuesday’s 42-16 drubbing:

Column: Josh Allen’s first stinker of the season exemplary of Bills’ effort

You had an inkling it wasn’t going to be a good night for Josh Allen or the Buffalo Bills on the third play from scrimmage.

NASHVILLE – No one circles the wagons like the Tennessee Titans.

Sorry Chris Berman, and the Buffalo Bills.

Ravaged by positive COVID-19 tests, and without several key players on the team’s 53-man roster, the Titans beat the Bills 42-16 with an inspired effort on Tuesday night in the first game with fans present at Nissan Stadium during the 2020 season.

The Titans gave fans plenty to cheer about while improving to 4-0.

It was the team’s first game in 16 days after having back-to-back games rescheduled, and it came after only one full practice during the week leading up to the contest.

With a depleted roster and a resilient approach, the Titans produced an effort on Tuesday night that surely impressed even Berman, the famed ESPN anchor who coined the catchphrase “No one circles the wagons like the Buffalo Bills” roughly 30 years ago.

Computer crash causes extra charge on Mount Vernon water bills


Hundreds of Mount Vernon residents opened their latest water bills to find a hefty extra charge.

Not because they hadn’t paid what they owed. And not because the city was suddenly charged more for its water.

On Facebook, City Councilwoman Delia Farquharson posted her bill showing an “additional billing” of $319.75. “This water bill requires further explanation. I do not have a pool,” she quipped alongside the bill.

The explanations came Wednesday from water Commissioner Carlton Spruill and Mayor Shawyn Patterson-Howard. The extra charge for residents of Water District 3 was a result of the crash of a city computer server in April that eliminated data including some of the water department’s billing records. They suggested the “additional billing” figure will not have to be paid.

In a letter to customers, Spruill told residents that the “additional billing” reflected previous payments. Those who believe their bills were incorrect were urged to call the water department at 914-668-7820 or email them at [email protected]

Contact by email may be best as when a reporter called the department Thursday morning, both options went to voicemail but the mailbox was full.

“Once we have been notified of your inquiry, please disregard any “Additional Billing” and remit payment for “Current Charges” while we investigate and adjust any discrepancies,” Spruill wrote.

Spruill and Patterson-Howard posted a 3-minute video on Facebook detailing the problem. The mayor urged residents who got the extra charge to find their proof of previous payments to help the water department clear up the problem.

“We are not trying to double-bill our citizens for water,” she said.
