Tennessee Titans 2020 NFL schedule.
I asked you for one thing NFL schedule makers, and this is what you do to the good Tennessee Titans fans?
If you read my article earlier, you know that the Tennessee Titans wanted one thing more than anything else: don’t let them play the Denver Broncos in the first two weeks of the season.
With that in mind, let’s look at what happened:
Week 1: MNF Tennessee Titans AT Denver Broncos
-Wow, just a worst-case scenario situations here, but the good news is that it isn’t technically impossible to win there early.
Week 2: Jacksonville Jaguars AT Tennessee
-It seems like every year the Tennessee Titans are trying to find ways to get to 1-1 after a rough game in the first two weeks of the season. Hopefully the Jaguars are committed to a full tank instead of pretending to compete for the first month of the season before giving up.
Week 3: Tennessee AT Minnesota Vikings
-Last year the Vikings were a strange team last year that struggled to find pass/run balance early. Maybe that happens again this year, but either way it is nice to get cold weather teams early.
Week 4: Pittsburgh Steelers AT Tennessee
-You never want to see the Steelers, but if you see them you want it to be at home early in the season.
Week 5: Buffalo Bills AT Tennessee
-Back to back cold-weather teams at home in Nashville in what should be 80+ degree temperatures. This time the Titans will have a different quarterback under center
Week 6: Houston Texans AT Tennessee
-A 3rd home game in a row and right before the bye week. This should be a pretty comfortable build through games that get progressively more important from Pittsburgh to Buffalo to Houston.
Week 7: BYE WEEK
Week 8: Tennessee AT Cincinnati Bengals
-This feels like a waste of a bye week. You get two weeks to prepare for the team that finished with the worst record in the NFL last year.
Week 9: Chicago Bears AT Tennessee
-The Titans play the Bears in the preseason, but they do it in Week 4 so it probably will just insure that the last preseason contest is extra boring as to not give anything away.
Week 10: TNF Indianapolis Colts AT Tennessee
-The Titans have a quick turn around, but luckily they are the home team in their Thursday Night Football contest this year. The home team wins a disproportionate amount of these games.
Week 11: Tennessee AT Baltimore Ravens
-The Baltimore Ravens took off in the second half of last season, but with a full year of film on Lamar Jackson and recently playing the Ravens will give the Titans an edge that most teams don’t have.
Week 12: Titans AT Indianapolis Colts
-The second Titans/Colts game in a 17-day span and each team has a tough opponent in between (Packers for the Colts). It will be interesting to see how they can adapt.
Week 13: Cleveland Browns AT Tennessee Titans
-Again, a theme with all of this is the weather. Getting cold teams in Tennessee and forcing them to play games that are 20 degrees or so hotter than what they are used to is ideal.
Week 14: Tennessee AT Jacksonville Jaguars
-Safe to assume that the Jaguars will be in full tank mode by now, which is good because you might as well make your road games easier.
Week 15: Detroit Lions
-This game’s date is TBD, but by this point, in the season the Detroit Lions are usually out of the hunt and put up less of a fight.
Week 16: SNF Tennessee AT Green Bay Packers
-This could be a huge matchup between two playoff-bound teams. The last major AFC/NFC conflict before the playoff start, which is why it is a primetime game.
Week 17: Tennessee AT Houston Texans
-Another AFC South game to close the season, but the downside is that the Titans have to go on the road AGAIN and face off against the Texans protected by their dome.
