Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans (1-1) conclude the preseason this week with a home game against the Arizona Cardinals (1-1). Kickoff at Nissan Stadium (capacity 69,143) is scheduled for Saturday, August 27th, 2022 at 6:00pm.

During the week, the Titans and Cardinals will conduct a joint practice at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park on Wednesday, August 24th. The practice begins at 9:30am and is closed to the general public.

This is the second consecutive week for the Titans to practice against a preseason opponent. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers arrived last week for two practices leading up to a Saturday night matchup at Nissan Stadium that was won by the Titans.

Arizona’s visit comes nearly a full calendar year after they opened the 2021 regular season in Tennessee on September 12th. The Cardinals took the matchup by a score of 38-13 to claim their third consecutive victory against the Titans.
The game will be televised regionally on the Titans Preseason TV Network, including the flagship WKRN-News 2 in Nashville. Play-by-play announcer Dan Hellie and analyst Charles Davis will call the action, and Cory Curtis will report from the sidelines.

About the Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansThe work against the Cardinals represents the final time executive vice president/general manager Jon Robinson and head coach Mike Vrabel will get a look at their team against an opposing club prior to final cuts.

The roster needs to be trimmed from 85 to 80 players by August 23rd and finally to 53 players by August 30th. On September 11th, the Titans commence the regular season at home against the New York Giants.

The Titans picked up their first win of the preseason last week, defeating the Buccaneers 13-3. With starter Ryan Tannehill out of the lineup, rookie Malik Willis started at quarterback and played into the third quarter for the second consecutive game.

The third-rounder from Liberty passed for 80 yards, including a six-yard touchdown to another draft pick, fourth-round tight end Chig Okonkwo. Willis added 42 rushing yards in the win.

The Tennessee Titans’ defense thwarted Tampa Bay’s offense for the majority of the evening, allowing only nine first downs and forcing a pair of turnovers. Inside linebacker Joe Jones recorded an interception, and outside linebacker Rashad Weaver recovered a fumble. The turnovers led to 10 total points.
