Tennessee Titans release 2021 schedule, will kick off season against Arizona at Nissan Stadium

The Tennessee Titans will play three primetime games this season.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans will start their 2021 season at home, playing in Nissan Stadium against the Arizona Cardinals.

They released their schedule on Wednesday, announcing that they are expected to play three primetime games in the upcoming season. Two of those games will be at home as well.

The team will play three of their first five games on the road.

"I know this is a fun day for our fans, team and organization as we get ready for football this fall," said Titans Coach Mike Vrabel. "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."

Their game against the Cardinals is scheduled for 12 p.m. The Titans will also play against the Buffalo Bills in a Monday Night Football game on Oct. 18 at 7:15 p.m. before hosting the San Francisco 49ers in a Thursday Night Football game Dec. 23.

"We are excited our fans get to experience a couple of home primetime games and our players certainly feed off the fans' energy," said Vrabel. "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."
