Titans Conclude Preseason Against Cardinals


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 6 p.m. CDT on Saturday, Aug. 27.

During the week, the Titans and Cardinals will conduct a joint practice at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park on Wednesday, Aug. 24. The practice begins at 9:30 a.m. 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.

The Titans have practiced with the Cardinals at Ascension Saint Thomas Sports Park on one prior occasion. In 2010, the clubs held a joint training camp workout two days after a preseason contest.

Arizona's visit comes nearly a full calendar year after they opened the 2021 regular season in Tennessee on Sept. 12. 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 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.

The roster needs to be trimmed from 85 to 80 players by Aug. 23 and finally to 53 players by Aug. 30. On Sept. 11, 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 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.


Led by head coach Kliff Kingsbury, who arrived in Arizona in 2019, the Cardinals went 11-6 in 2021 to earn a wild card playoff berth and their first appearance in the postseason since 2015.
