The Tennessee Titans host the Carolina Panthers for the second preseason game of 2017. Here’s everything you need to know.
The Tennessee Titans opened up their 2017 preseason campaign last Saturday night against the New York Jets. In a 7-3 thriller, quarterback Alex Tanney was unable to rally the Titans to a victory. While the Jets were more of a test than many imagined, the Titans’ next opponent is a measuring stick.
The Carolina Panthers are a very talented team that was in the Super Bowl just two seasons ago. With much of the same team intact, the Panthers look likely to sniff the playoffs once again in 2017. They got off to a good start with a dominating 27-17 win over the Houston Texans last Wednesday. Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, in particular, looked great in that matchup.
Both teams have high hopes going into the upcoming season. Today’s game will be a good way of stacking up to the competition, regardless of how many good players don’t suit up.
Where and When
The game will be played at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. CT, although kickoff is usually delayed about five to seven minutes.
