Nashville, TN – Two Monday Night Football games, the most since 2007, and a total of three primetime games headline the Titans 2018 schedule. Their first MNF appearance of the season comes at the Dallas Cowboys on November 5th, followed by a second on November 26th at the Houston Texans.
The Titans open the season at the Miami Dolphins on September 9th, and return to Nissan Stadium for their home-opener against the Houston Texans on September 16th. The Titans will host AFC South Division winners Jacksonville in a nationally-televised Thursday night contest on December 6th.
“The first thing I look at on the schedule are those quick turnaround games, the ones you are going to have to work ahead and you are going to have to have your team ready to take on another challenging opponent,” said Titans head coach Mike Vrabel. “Guys (the players) are always looking at Thanksgiving and Christmas to see where we are because that is what the family wants to know about.
“Primetime games are important. Monday night, we will go on the road for those two games. We will get to have our fans here on a Thursday night to help us on a short week.
“Most of the guys have played in Miami and Jacksonville and all of those places where it is going to be warm in September at 12:00pm. Just making sure that whether we started at home or on the road, that our team is well-conditioned, ready and prepared.
“We have talked (as a team) about having to embrace the buzz around the football team but also being able to manage expectations and understand that we are back at square one.”
The Titans schedule features home games against Baltimore, New England, New York Jets, Philadelphia, Washington, Jacksonville, Houston and Indianapolis.
Tennessee will travel to Buffalo, Dallas, Miami, New York Giants, Houston, Jacksonville and Indianapolis. Additionally, the game against the Los Angeles Chargers will be played in London.
Flexible scheduling may be applied in Weeks 5-16. During that period, flexible scheduling can be used by the NFL by shifting a Sunday afternoon game into primetime and moving the Sunday night game to an afternoon start time. Additionally, the Titans Week 16 contest against Washington will be played on either December 22nd or 23rd. The NFL will choose two of four undated games no later than following Week 8 to fill the two game slots on Saturday, December 22nd. The other two games will be played on Sunday, December 23rd.
For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to December 30th. The NFL schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot.
