Here’s a little something that you may want to place in those calendars and organizers. Those of you who are Tennessee Titans fans that are living outside of their local coverage area in Nashville will still get a chance to see your favorite team during the preseason as general manager Jon Robinson, head coach Mike Vrabel and company build their roster over the course of what’s now a three-game preseason slate.
The Titans travel to meet two teams from the NFC South, the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, on August 13th and August 21st. That Titans-Falcons tilt is at 6:00 p.m. CST. The latter contest is at 6:30 p.m. CST. Their third and final contest will be nationally televised as NFL.com made a huge announcement this past Monday.
The Tennessee Titans are added to an NFL Network triple-header.
According to NFL.com’s statement, the NFL Network is set to carry record 23 live preseason games over the month of August. The Tennessee Titans are a part of a seven-game slate on the 2021 preseason’s third and final weekend. That includes two triple-headers.
In the first, on Saturday (August 28th), the Buffalo Bills host the Green Bay Packers at 1 p.m. EST (12 p.m. CST). That one is followed by a chance to watch your beloved Titans host the Chicago Bears at Nissan Stadium at 7 p.m. EST (6 p.m. CST) before the Los Angeles Chargers travel to the Pacific Northwest to take on the Seattle Seahawks at 10 p.m. EST (9 p.m. CST).
Yes, you’re correct in what you’re thinking. The third and final preseason game is where those final kinks get worked out, so don’t expect to get any peeks at any of the Titans’ stars in that one. You won’t be seeing Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry, Julio Jones, or A.J. Brown suit up for that one.
There’s a chance that you’ll get to see Bears rookie signal-caller Justin Fields, but it’s doubtful. In all likelihood, he’ll be named Chicago’s starter, and if that’s the case, he’ll be sitting this one out as well as the Bears prepare for a trip to meet the Rams in Los Angeles for Week 1.
