The Titans will open the season against the Oakland Raiders at Nissan Stadium according to Adam Caplan of ESPN. This is the first leak I have seen on the Titans schedule. The full schedule is set to be released at 7 central tonight. Terry will have all of the coverage here for you.
#Titans to host #Raiders in Week 1, source told ESPN.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) April 20, 2017
This is actually a pretty interesting game. You have two of the best young quarterbacks in the game facing off week 1. They also both happen to be coming off season ending injuries.
It will be a good test for the presumably re-vamped Titans secondary right off the bat. The Raiders passing attack is pretty lethal with Derek Carr throwing to Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree on the outside.
It is also a re-match of a game from last year where there was a terrible OPI call on Andre Johnson that took at game-winning touchdown off the board. The Titans would have been in the playoffs, and faced the Raiders again, if that wasn’t called.
