The NFL has shifted its 20-game slate. Instead of four preseason and 16 regular season contests, there will only be three preseason tilts before a 17-game regular season. In previous years, the balance worked out to two home preseason and eight home regular season games per team. This year, the Titans will only have one home preseason game, but they will have nine regular season games in Nissan Stadium, one more at home that counts toward establishing playoff positioning.
After two road trip tilts, first to Atlanta on Friday, August 13 against the Falcons at 6 pm, and then to Tampa Bay against the Buccaneers on Saturday, August 21 at 6:30 pm, the team will host the Chicago Bears on Saturday, August 28 at 6:00 pm. All three games will be telecast live on WKRN NewsChannel 2 in Nashville.
The Titans open their 2021 campaign at home this year, hosting the Arizona Cardinals at 12 Noon on Sunday, September 12. The phenomenal Tennessee State University Aristocrat of Bands will be featured at the season opener, so get your tickets now, and plan to be at the stadium early!
Two very important games to watch for this season are their first road game, to Seattle, where they will be hosted by the Seahawks and my favorite NFC quarterback Russell Wilson. That game will be carried live on CBS with a 3:25 pm CDT kickoff. The other major highlight of the season is when the team hosts the Kansas City Chiefs at Nissan Stadium at 12 Noon on Sunday, October 24. Look for some special things to happen when my favorite AFC quarterback Patrick Mahomes drops back.
