Head coach Mike Vrabel and running back Derrick Henry want to see Nissan Stadium packed full of Tennessee Titans fans in Week 15.
The Tennessee Titans will have a huge matchup with the Houston Texans in Week 15 that will be for first place in the AFC South, and head coach Mike Vrabel and running back Derrick Henry both want to see fans show up in full force for the crucial game.
Too many times this season we’ve seen Nissan Stadium packed full of opposing fans like in the game against the Bills, or just lackluster attendance numbers in general for Titans home games.
Well, Vrabel and Henry want to see a different situation on Sunday, when the Titans take on the Texans in what is one of two showdowns that will determine the division winner.
According to ESPN’s Turron Davenport, Henry wants Nissan Stadium to be booming in Week 15.
"“It needs to be loud, packed and filled. It’s a big-time game against a division opponent, so we hope everybody is there.”"
Vrabel echoed those sentiments in his post-game comments on Sunday.
"“I’d love to see as many people that want to come out and support us and make it hard for the Texans while they’re operating. I always feel like the effort, again, it’s never going to be perfect, but I feel like the effort and the finish from this football team is something that our city and our fans can rally around, and then watch that.”"
After a slow start to the season that saw the Titans lose their first two home games, Tennessee has now won its last four contests at Nissan Stadium.
With the way the offense played in the first half of 2019, it was understandable if fans didn’t want to spend their hard-earned money to watch an abysmal offense in person.
However, thanks to an offensive explosion that has seen the Titans score the second-most points in the NFL since Week 7 and 30 points or more in each of the last four games, Tennessee now sports an explosive offense that makes the Titans a must-see team.
Let’s hope that translates to a packed-out crowd full of two-tone blue on Sunday.
