Tennessee Titans Announce 2017 Preseason Schedule
By Luke Worsham
The Tennessee Titans preseason schedule has been announced.
On Monday afternoon, the Tennessee Titans unveiled the schedule for their four 2017 preseason games. The schedule is as follows:
WEEK 1: (AWAY) New York Jets — Time and Date TBA
WEEK 2: (HOME) Carolina Panthers — Time and Date TBA
WEEK 3: (HOME) Chicago Bears — Aug. 27 @ NOON on FOX
WEEK 4: (AWAY) Kansas City Chiefs — Time and Date TBA
For the second straight year, the Titans will host the Carolina Panthers at Nissan Stadium in the second week of the preseason. Last year’s game entered a severe weather delay during the third quarter, leading to a memorable game of Twitter Tic-Tac-Toe between the two teams.
As they have for the past two seasons, the Titans will also get to play in a nationally televised preseason game. On Sunday, August 27, they will host the Chicago Bears for an exhibition game to be aired nationally on FOX at noon central time.

The preseason, as has always been the case, is a chance for NFL teams and their starters to have “dress rehearsals” prior to the start of the regular season that don’t count against their record. For fans, since starters don’t usually play very long into the games, the preseason serves as an opportunity to get a first look at draft picks and free agent acquisitions, and to watch younger, more inexperienced players to compete for roster spots.
Though the draft is still a few weeks away, we already know of a few exciting players that Titans fans will have the opportunity to watch during the preseason. In addition to new faces on the Titans—like Johnathan Cyprien, Logan Ryan, and Sylvester Williams—fans will also get to watch exciting new members and young players of the four opposing teams.
To name a few, QB Mike Glennon and WR Kevin White of the Bears, and WR Quincy Enunwa of the Jets will all be interesting young players/newcomers to watch for various reasons. It is also always fun to watch players like Cam Newton, Tyreek Hill, and Jordan Howard, even if it is for just a quarter or two.
The preseason can be, at times, both boring and monotonous, but at least it’s football. By the time August rolls around, everyone will be ready for just that.
