Titans 2007 Schedule Released

The Titans released the schedule for the upcoming season today with several first time match-ups here in Nashville and two "Monday Night Football" appearances.

NASHVILLE, TENN. –The Tennessee Titans return to primetime in 2007, after a two year absence on the national schedule, with two appearances on ESPN's Monday Night Football at New Orleans (Sept. 24) and at Denver (Nov. 19). The Titans will open the season at division rival Jacksonville (Sept. 9) and open the home schedule the following week against the Super Bowl Champion Indianapolis Colts on Sept. 16.

"As I posted the season schedule today in the weight room the level of excitement among the players quickly increased as the first thing they looked for were nationally televised games and saw the two Monday Night games," said Titans head coach Jeff Fisher.

"I too was happy to see that the momentum we built at the end of last season translated into two Monday night games, an experience we haven't had over the last two seasons. Opening this season or any regular season versus a division opponent is a challenge. The final four games are against playoff teams from a year ago and this year's bye falls a little early, but byes always come at a good time."

The Titans schedule features home game against Atlanta, Carolina, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, New York Jets, Oakland and San Diego. Tennessee will travel to Cincinnati, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Kansas City, New Orleans and Tampa Bay.

Again this year, the NFL will feature "flexible scheduling" for the Sunday night game in Weeks 11-17. Teams will be given two weeks notice if a game is moving from an afternoon game to a night game.

Single game tickets for the 2007 season will go on sale July 14.

The Titans 2007 schedule contains several interesting stories:

· The Titans will renew their rivalry with the Cincinnati Bengals on November 25. The Bengals and Titans/Oilers have faced each other 69 times during the regular season, the most of any Titans opponent.

· The schedule features five playoff teams in six games: Indianapolis (twice), N.Y. Jets, San Diego, Kansas City and New Orleans.

· The Titans will play a regular season game in Denver for the first time since 1992 and the first-ever regular season visit to Invesco Field.

· The Titans will make their first appearance at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City for the first time since 1995.

· The October 14th game at Tampa will mark the Titans first visit to Raymond James Stadium.

· The schedule features three consecutive home games in the middle of the schedule. It marks the first three game homestand for the Titans since 2000, when they faced Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Cleveland in consecutive weeks.

· Carolina and San Diego will play for the first time at LP Field, where opponents are 6-21 in their initial visit.
