It is the three games under the lights that will get the fans most excited. The Titans host the Buffalo Bills in week 6 for a Monday Night game. Three weeks later, in week 9 they visit the Los Angeles Rams for Sunday night football. Week 16 they host the San Francisco 49ers for a Thursday night game.
“I know this is a fun day for our fans, team and organization as we get ready for football this fall,” said Mike Vrabel, Titans Head Coach. “We understand how critical each game is on our schedule and there will certainly be difficult stretches each season because of injuries, opponents and travel.
“We are excited our fans get to experience a couple of home primetime games and our players certainly feed off the fans’ energy. We will be opening at home for the first time since I became head coach and I am happy our fans will be there to kick off the season with us.”
The Titans play 8 games against playoff teams in the 2021 season including facing the AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs at Nissan Stadium. The last time the Chiefs visited Nashville the Titans rallied for a thrilling 35-32 on a late touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill to Adam Humphries.
