The Tennessee Titans could be gearing up for their best season since 2008, and I have three games that I want to see in Primetime.
The Tennessee Titans haven’t been able to do better than 9-7 for over a decade. The past three seasons, the Titans have been stuck at 9-7, but 2020 could be their best season since 2008 when the Titans went 13-3.
The NFL is releasing its season schedule for the 2020 season this Thursday, May 7th, and the Titans will find out when they will be playing each opponent on its schedule and what games will be in primetime.
The Titans aren’t usually given a lot of primetime games. Two or maybe three is all they’ll usually get with a Thursday Night Football game against the Jaguars, and a Monday or Sunday Night Football game against another division rival.
Assuming that the Titans will be good enough to have three primetime appearances, I have three games that I’d like to see the Titans play in.
As of right now, all we know is who the Titans are playing and what games are at home and what games are on the road.
The Titans home games consist of vs. Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Titans road games consist of at the Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, and Minnesota Vikings.
One thing that I don’t want to see is another Titans-Jaguars Thursday Night Football game. I think the TNF game will be against a division rival so I want to see the Titans play the Colts on Thursday Night. Whether that’s on the road or at home, I don’t care, but I’d prefer it to be in Nashville.
For a Sunday Night Football game, I would like to see the Titans play the Bills. You may think that this doesn’t sound like a fun matchup or worthy of a primetime game, but the Bills are ranked near the top of the NFL with the Titans in some power rankings, including the one I covered yesterday.
I think that the Titans and Bills could be competing for the three-seed in the playoffs when December rolls around.
For a Monday Night Football game, I’m going to take the Titans on the road and say that I’d like to see the Titans take on the Ravens on MNF. The Titans beat the Ravens in the Divisional Round in last year’s playoffs, so a primetime rematch in Baltimore is the only way to go about that matchup.
I think that the Titans have a strong schedule this year and could have another one or two primetime games if the Titans get the Packers, Browns, or Vikings late in the season, and that game can be rotated into Primetime.
