Here are bold predictions for the Tennessee Titans’ third preseason game.

Two games are in the books. One game remains, and then, the Tennessee Titans will have a little over two weeks to prepare for the Arizona Cardinals in a game that doubles as the regular-season opener for both teams.

A lot has to happen before we start talking about Kyler Murray DeAndre Hopkins, and J.J. Watt though. The Titans have some housekeeping to do on their own roster.

An 80-man preseason unit must be trimmed to a team of 53 men and a practice squad of 16 prospects. Tennessee also has to get their coach, Mike Vrabel, back (right now he’s still adhering to the rules of COVID-19 protocol).

Tough decisions will need to be made. Does Tennessee keep Chester Rodgers or Mason Kinsey (or find a way to keep both) because, whether you want to hear this or not, the Titans have a lot of really good players, and there’s no way that they’re taking every single one of them into the regular season.

That means that there’s a possibility that guys we know pretty well (Jeremy McNichols, Dane Cruikshank) might be left off of the roster, and new guys like Racey McMath and Brady Breeze might be among the 16 that make the aforementioned practice squad.

Yes, this final game is of the utmost importance, whether it counts or not. Here are four extremely bold predictions on what happens when we get to kickoff.
