The 2024 NFL schedule should be released soon. In the meantime, we already have a lot of information regarding Tennessee's slate, including opponents, and which games will be played at home or on the road. Once the official dates are released, we'll have the whole pie. While we wait, here's a look at three key things we already know about the Titans' upcoming 2024 campaign.

Games against playoff teams

Out of their 17 regular season games in 2024, the Titans will play against five playoff teams from last season in six games, since they play the Houston Texans twice.. That number is relatively low. Those five teams are the Texans (twice), Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills.

Tennessee's other 11 games will come against teams that didn't qualify for postseason play last season. But, that obviously doesn't mean that the Titans can overlook any of those teams, as all have aimed to improve over the offseason. Overall, Indianapolis' 2024 opponents had a combined record of 142-147 last season.

A tough road slate

Some of the Titans toughest games next season will take place on the road. Out of those six games against playoff teams from last season, four of them will take place outside of Tennessee. The games against the Dolphins, Lions and Bills will all be on the road, as will one of the games against the Texans. Those games should be tough regardless of where they're played, and unfortunately the Titans won't have the benefit of home-field advantage for them.

A matchup with the No. 1 overall pick

The Titans should get a first-hand look at top pick from the 2024 NFL Draft, Caleb Williams, as Tennessee is slated to head to Chicago during the season. Williams became just the third top overall pick in Bears franchise history, and the expectations in Chicago are sky-high for the young quarterback.

Prior to his using the top pick on Williams, the Bears traded incumbent quarterback Justin Fields to the Steelers, so the expectation is that Williams will take over as the starter from Day 1. The Titans had a rookie quarterback in Will Levis last season, and now they'll get to face off against one of the more highly-hyped ones in recent memory.
