Sunday, September 8th, 2013 | Noon CDT
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans (0-0) open the regular season on the road this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-0), marking the 76th all-time meeting between the two franchises. Kickoff at Heinz Field (capacity 65,500) is scheduled for 1:00pm EDT/noon CDT on Sunday, September 8th.

Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans defense had something to prove after last week’s performance against the Cincinnati Bengals. And prove it they did, holding the vaulted Atlanta Falcons offense led by Matt Ryan to only field goals in the first half. In fact, the Titans were able to sack Ryan five times.
The Tennessee offense started slow on their first two possessions before Jake Locker but together a 5 play scoring drive capped by a 7 yard pass to Nate Washington in the back of the end zone. This got the Titans going and they never let off the gas going on to beat the Falcons 27-16.
Nashville, TN – During the offseason, Tennessee Titans general manager Ruston Webster oversaw the reconstruction of the roster, adding key pieces through free agency and the draft.
In late February, the Titans signed former Buffalo Bills safety George Wilson. In mid-March, Webster moved quickly once the unrestricted free agent signing period was underway, inking guard Andy Levitre (Buffalo), running back Shonn Greene (New York Jets), tight end Delanie Walker (San Francisco 49ers), linebacker Moise Fokou (Indianapolis Colts) and defensive tackle Sammie Hill (Detroit Lions) within 24 hours.
