In 2019, they were shut out 16-0 in the last game the Titans played before Ryan Tannehill was installed as the starting quarterback. Since then, the Titans’ 35-16 record (.686) ranks fourth in the NFL.This week’s festivities at Nissan Stadium will include the Titans’ annual Salute to Service, a league-wide initiative to show gratitude for the sacrifices made by the military community.

Titans Look To Bounce Back After Lost
The Titans traveled to Kansas City last week for a Sunday night clash with the Chiefs. With rookie quarterback Malik Willis making his second career start due to Tannehill’s injured ankle, the Titans built a 17-9 lead in the second half only to have the Chiefs tie the game with less than three minutes remaining in regulation. After the Chiefs used a 28-yard field goal to take the lead in overtime, the Titans were unable to match it on the subsequent series and lost by a final score of 20-17. The Titans unfortunately couldn’t move the ball down the field in the second half. The Titans went 1-11 on 3rd downs and had a total of 7 yards in the 2nd half.
3 Hot Topics
1. Will the pass game finally show up?
It’s never a positive development when you leave a game without a single catch from a wide receiver. The Titans need QB Ryan Tannehill back from injury and an infusion of talent at the receiver position, namely, 1st Round pick Treylon Burks coming back from injury. Their status going forward will be a key to watch this week.
2. Defensive bounce back:
The Titans defense were on the field for 91 snaps against Kansas City on Sunday, putting forth a sterling effort in a loss.The Titans defense compiled four sacks and an interception, notching its fifth straight outing with three or more sacks and its sixth consecutive contest with at least one interception.How does the group put such a disappointing loss behind them in time for Sunday against the Broncos?
3. Containing Russell Wilson:
Though this season hasn’t been what they were for, Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson remains a threat to make plays with both his arm and his legs. Can the titans defense continue their dominance against this Broncos offense.
