The Titans are set to host the Buffalo Bills in a Monday Night Football contest on October 18 on ESPN at 7:15 p.m., and they’re scheduled to host the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday Night Football on NFL Network on December 23.

The Titans are also scheduled to play at the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football on NBC on November 7 at 7:20 p.m.

The Titans will play three of their first five games on the road, including a Week 2 contest at Seattle on September 19.

A difficult stretch against five teams that went to the playoffs in 2020 begins with the Oct. 18 game against the Bills and continues with contests against the Chiefs (Oct. 24), at the Colts (Oct. 31), at the Rams (Nov. 7), and vs the Saints (Nov.14).

The bye week is scheduled for Week 13.

“I know this is a fun day for our fans, team and organization as we get ready for football this fall,” Titans Coach Mike Vrabel said. “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’ strength of schedule is the 13th most difficult in the NFL based upon their opponents’ combined 2020 winning percentage of .507 (138-134).

In the preseason, the Titans will play just three games in 2021 after the NFL expanded the regular season to 17 games. The Titans will host the Chicago Bears on Saturday, August 28 at Nissan Stadium in Week 3 of the preseason after playing their first two preseason contests on the road at the Atlanta Falcons (Friday, August 13) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Saturday, August 21).
