For the first time, the Titans will host a game at Nissan Stadium with no fans present. In August, the Titans and the city of Nashville announced the decision that no fans would attend the contest due to COVID-19 Coronavirus restrictions. No decision has been announced for the remaining Titans home dates, including three games in October.
Nashville, TN – In Week 6 of the 2019 season, the Tennessee Titans traveled to Denver to take on the Broncos and lost by a score of 16-0.
On Denver’s opening possession, the Broncos constructed an eight-play, 32-yard scoring drive. Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay contributed 13 yards on the ground, and Broncos RB Royce Freeman accounted for 11 rushing yards. Broncos K Brandon McManus converted a 31-yard field goal for an early 3-0 Denver lead.
Nashville, TN – This is the 43rd all-time meeting between the Denver Broncos and the Tennessee Titans, two of the eight charter members of the American Football League. The Titans lead the series with a 23-18-1 record, including a 22-16-1 record in the regular season and 1-2 mark in the playoffs.
While they met twice per year in nine out of 10 AFL seasons (1960-69), these two franchises have seen relatively little of each other in recent history. Outside of a pair of preseason games (1998 and 2006), they have played just seven times since the Titans moved to Tennessee, although they did square off a season ago.

Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans (0-0) travel to Denver this week to open their season against the Broncos (0-0) on Monday Night Football. The game marks the Titans’ first Monday night season opener in franchise history. Kickoff at Empower Field at Mile High is scheduled for 8:20pm MDT/9:20pm CDT on September 14th, 2020.
It will be the third season opener in franchise history against the Broncos and the first in 48 years. The last time was a 30-17 Oilers loss at Denver in 1972, preceded by an Oilers home win in 1966.
Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) football has added a third game – completing the fall portion of its 2020-21 schedule – with the Governors traveling northeast for a September 12th contest at Pittsburgh.
It will be only the second time the Governors football team has traveled to Pennsylvania and its first-ever meeting against Pittsburgh.
Nashville, TN – Perhaps Tennessee Titans executive vice president/general manager Jon Robinson’s two most critical moves since the AFC Championship game were locking up a pair of the team’s own free agents with new, multi-year contracts—quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry.
Tannehill, acquired in a trade with the Miami Dolphins, was a catalyst for the team’s resurgence in 2019, taking control as the starter in Week 7 and finishing the campaign with a league-best 117.5 passer rating. He was named to his first Pro Bowl and voted the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year.
Nashville, TN – Tennessee Titans executive vice president/general manager Jon Robinson and head coach Mike Vrabel hope to take the next step with a Titans team that was one game from the Super Bowl in 2019. The Titans fell to the eventual Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC title game, ending a memorable run on the heels of a 2-4 start to the regular season.
They finished the season at 9-7, earned a wild card berth, and then went on the road to knock off the New England Patriots and the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens in the first two playoff rounds, respectively.
Nashville, TN – Tennessee Titans executive vice president/general manager Jon Robinson and head coach Mike Vrabel are tasked with building and maximizing the Titans roster through the unprecedented obstacles of 2020.
The Titans will carry an 80-man roster through camp, down from 90 players in camp a year ago. The final reduction to 53 players is scheduled for September 5th, 2020.
Nashville, TN – Tennessee Titans players have reported to Saint Thomas Sports Park this week for the start of training camp.
It is the first time since January that the full Titans roster has accessed team headquarters. The entire offseason program was conducted in a virtual setting due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak, which continues to impact the way the NFL and the Titans are conducting business.
Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) interim head football coach Marquase Lovings announced the addition of two full-time assistant coaches, among other staff additions for the upcoming 2020 season.
Thirty-five-year coaching veteran Mike Markuson will take over as the APSU Governors’ offensive line coach, replacing Eddy Morrissey, who departed in June to pursue other professional opportunities.
