In the only preseason game between the teams, the Panthers defeated the Titans 15-7 at Bank of America Stadium on August 28th, 2010.

Tennessee Titans Mike Mularkey and Staff looking for their kind of Players

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Mularkey wasted little time in defining the sought-after characteristics of players on his roster. “Smart, tough, physical, coachable and accountable” was how he put it at his opening press conference in January, and the sentiment was echoed in the subsequent months by Robinson.

The winnowing process began with the offseason program from April through June. It continues when players report following a six-week break, and then there are only two weeks from the initial training camp practice to August 13th, when the Titans host the San Diego Chargers in the first of four preseason games.
