McDermott: Derrick Henry playing at 'an all-time high level'

Bills head coach Sean McDermott joined the "Extra Point Show" on Friday ahead of his team's matchup with the Titans on "Monday Night Football"

Following a dominant win on "Sunday Night Football" over the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium this past week, the Bills are looking to extend their winning streak to a fifth game, as Buffalo takes to the prime-time stage again in Week 6 with a "Monday Night Football" matchup with the Tennessee Titans at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.

The Bills, once again, played a complete contest in all three phases of the game. The Buffalo offense was able to move the ball effectively against the Chiefs and put up 38 points against the defending AFC champions. The defense was able to limit Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City offense, while also forcing three turnovers. Even the special teams unit was able to contribute with another turnover on a kickoff earlier in the game.

Defensively, the Titans are in the lower-half of the NFL, in terms of overall defense, averaging 381.8 yards-against per-game. That could be an issue going against a Buffalo offense that is averaging 410.4 yards per-game, and boasts the best scoring unit in the league with 34.4 points per-game.

Although his team enters Monday night's contest as, arguably, the best team in the NFL, Bills head coach Sean McDermott knows his group cannot afford overlook a team like the Titans.

McDermott joined Sal Capaccio on the "Extra Point Show" for his weekly appearance on "Buffalo Bills Football Friday." He talked about this week's upcoming matchup in prime-time, as well as last week's impressive performance against the Chiefs, and more.

Here is some of what McDermott had to say:

McDermott on facing Derrick Henry once again:
"He's playing at a high level, and probably an all-time high level. He's big, he's fast, he breaks tackles. Then the combination of what they've added outside with Julio Jones and A.J. Brown, to what was an already good receiving corps, makes it a tough combination with what they can do at the line of sc
