He spent four seasons with the Bills, and started all 64 games during those four years.

In 2012, he and the Bills offensive line held opponents to 30 sacks (fifth fewest in the AFC), while blocking for a rushing attack that averaged 138.6 yards per game, which ranked second in the AFC.
In 2013, Levitre signed with the Tennessee Titans as an unrestricted free agent. Levitre started all 32 games during his two year tenure with the Titans. Levitre's 16 starts at left guard in 2014, brought his consecutive starting streak to 96 games—every game since entering the NFL in 2009. His consecutive starts streak ranks first among all NFL guards, and makes Levitre one of only two members of the 2009 NFL Draft class to start all 96 regular season games from 2009 through 2014.
