Well, we made it! An early exit by the Tennessee Titans in the first round of the NFL Playoffs led us to a canceled NFL Combine, the free-agency period, the NFL Draft, OTAs, mandatory minicamp, and now training camp.
Guess what? Three preseason games are next, and Tennessee begins the quest towards greatness with a game versus the Atlanta Falcons. They’ve, no doubt, set the same bar that the Titans have. Everyone plays this game to win a championship right? Let’s be frank though.
One of these teams is a lot more ready to contend for a Vince Lombardi Trophy than the other one. Oh, and did you notice? This one serves as a homecoming game for Julio Jones (even though he probably won’t be playing). These two meet on Friday, August 13th at 6 pm CDT. Let’s talk about odds and a few other things.
Titans vs. Falcons odds for Preseason Week 1:
According to WynnBET, the Tennessee Titans are underdogs to the Atlanta Falcons by one point. The money line is -108. In other words, you’d need to bet $108 to win an additional $100 on Tennessee. That would make your payout $208.
You’d use the same theory if betting on Atlanta. Their money line is -116, so you’d have to bet $116 to earn the additional $100 payout. That makes the payout $216.
Titans Injury Report vs. Falcons preseason Week 1
While injury reports aren’t common during the preseason, AtlantaFalcons.com still lists Matt Gono on their Physically Unable to Perform list. Jaeden Graham and Sterling Hofrichter are both on the team’s IR (injured reserve). As far as the Titans go, A.J. Brown returned to practice on August 10th, which is interesting. Julio Jones hasn’t practiced in over a week.
Ben Jones, Nate David, Denico Autry, Derrick Henry, Harold Landry, and Kendall Lamb all sat out of Tennessee’s practice session on Tuesday as well.

Titans next game & schedule
The Titans won’t have a ton of time to think about this one when the clock runs out. It’s on to another week of practice before they meet the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2 of the preseason in Florida on August 21st at 6:30 pm CDT. They then wrap their three-game preseason slate with a home date versus the Chicago Bears on Saturday, August 28th at 6 pm CDT.
That one’s a part of a triple-header on NFL Network and should get them pumped for Week 1 of the regular season. That one’s scheduled for September 12th at 12 pm CDT versus the Arizona Cardinals.
