The Tennessee Titans’ first game of the season may feature some surprises.

Over the course of the Spring and Summer, we’ve talked about OTA absences, free-agency acquisitions, the NFL Draft, and a trade that brought a future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee to Nashville to join the Tennessee Titans.

Just rattle off some of the names of the guys who are on this roster, and you can see why everyone is excited. They have a legitimate MVP candidate in Derrick Henry. He has the best odds of any non-QB to win the trophy (even though we know this award will be given to a quarterback). The Titans are led on offense by a dark-horse MVP candidate, ninth-year signal-caller Ryan Tannehill.

So after COVID-19 scares, more injuries (so much for shorter practices with less contact), and a very impressive preseason, Tennessee is scheduled for a Week 1 home date versus the Arizona Cardinals who have done some fine-tuning of their own. This ought to be fun. Finally! We have a game to watch. Here are four bold predictions for how this one turns out.
