The Tennessee Titans get a test in Week 1, but it’s still a very winnable game.
Date: Sunday, September 12th at 12 PM CST
If you’re going to catch anyone off guard, the best way to do so is in Week 1. There are jitters. Everyone’s trying to find their rhythm. The new guys, at times, haven’t quite adjusted to the scheme they’re playing in. Sometimes, something as simple as playing at home can work wonders.
Tennessee’s first game that counts against the win-loss total is at Nissan Stadium as the Titans host an Arizona Cardinals team that will be flying across the country to get their first taste of football in 2021. It’s always easy to wonder about West Coast teams that are playing games that will, to them and their body clocks, feel like they’re being played at 10 A.M. PST.
The Titans welcome back a former comrade, Malcolm Butler, who will now line up as the CB1 in Zona. On the other side of the formation is Robert Alford. We’re all probably, as of right now, expecting Byron Murphy to play in the slot.
No disrespect is intended to those guys, but how do we say this nicely? There will be an opportunity for Jones and A.J. Brown to make some noise.
