Titans Release 2024 Schedule

NASHVILLE – Another primetime contest in Miami, and some big division games late in the season highlight the 2024 schedule for the Tennessee Titans.

On Wednesday night, the team’s entire schedule was released, including the team’s three preseason contests.

The Titans open the season at the Chicago Bears on September 8.

The team’s home opener will be the following week, on September 15 against the New York Jets.

The Titans will play one primetime game, at the Miami Dolphins, on Monday night, September 30.

The Titans are scheduled to play three straight AFC South contests to close out the season, including the finale, against the Houston Texans at Nissan Stadium in Week 18.

The team’s bye week is scheduled for Week 5.

The Titans have six total games against five playoff teams from last season.

The Titans have the NFL’s 21st ranked strength of schedule, with an opponents’ win percentage of .491 based off last year’s record (142-147).

In the preseason, the Titans will once again play three games in 2024 – vs the 49ers and Seahawks at Nissan Stadium, and on the road at the New Orleans Saints.

In the regular season, “flexible scheduling” for Sunday night may be used twice between Weeks 5-10, and at the NFL’s discretion during Weeks 11-17; and for Monday night at the NFL’s discretion in Weeks 12-17; and for Thursday Night Football it may be used up to twice between Weeks 13-17. In weeks of the season eligible for “flexible scheduling,” the games listed for the Sunday, Monday and Thursday night window are tentative and subject to change. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday, Monday or Thursday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday or Monday night game would be moved to a Sunday afternoon.
