There’s a good chance the Tennessee Titans will be playing a game in London in 2020.
After the Jacksonville Jaguars announced that the team would be playing two games in London during the 2020 season, there’s a good chance that the Tennessee Titans will be one of their opponents overseas.
On Tuesday, the Jags announced via their official website that the franchise would play back-to-back home games at Wembley Stadium. Since 2013, the Jags have played one game in London every season, with their most recent coming against the Houston Texans in 2019.
Understandably, the Jags have gotten a lot of grief for this decision, as season ticket holders will now lose out on two home games, while only receiving a 50 percent decrease in the price of their preseason tickets and a five percent decrease in their average regular season ticket prices.
Adding to that, some Jaguars fans are becoming increasingly suspicious that their team might eventually be making a permanent move overseas at some point down the road, although there is no concrete evidence to confirm that.
As we revel in the mess that the Jaguars are as a franchise (I do feel somewhat bad for their fans, though), this decision to play two games in London could lead to the Titans having to play the Jags in one of those contests.
The announcement noted that the two games in London will not take place against either the Chicago Bears or Pittsburgh Steelers.
Jim Wyatt of Titans Online speculated in his weekend mailbag that it was unlikely that the Jags would again draw the Texans in London for a second straight year.
That leaves the Titans and four other teams as possible opponents, and Wyatt believes the “chances are pretty good” that Tennessee meets Jacksonville across the pond in 2020.
The Titans last played in London in 2018, losing to the Los Angeles Chargers, 20-19.
