Tennessee Titans 2011 football schedule

The start of the National Football League season is less than a month away so here is the schedule the Tennessee Titans face this year.

Sept. 11 -- at Jacksonville
Sept. 18 -- vs. Baltimore
Sept. 25 -- vs. Denver
Oct. 2 -- at Cleveland
Oct. 9 -- at Pittsburgh
Oct. 16 -- BYE
Oct. 23 -- vs. Houston
Oct. 30 -- vs. Indianapolis
Nov. 6 -- vs. Cincinnati
Nov. 13 -- at Carolina
Nov. 20 -- at Atlanta
Nov. 27 -- vs. Tampa Bay
Dec. 4 -- at Buffalo
Dec. 11 -- vs. New Orleans
Dec. 18 -- at Indianapolis
Dec. 24 -- vs. Jacksonville
Jan. 1 -- at Houston

It is tough to know what to expect from the Titans this year. New head coach, new quarterbacks, lots of new players on defense, and running back Chris Johnson is holding out. Other than that, everything is pretty clear (please note sarcasm).

The opening game at Jacksonville is shaping up to be a critical game. It feels weird to write that about an opening game, but there is a lot riding on it. It is a divisional game, and each of those games is big. A loss there means the team could be staring at a 0-2 start because the home opener is a tough one against Baltimore.

Most of the non-divisional games are against the AFC North and the NFC South. Games against Pittsburgh, Atlanta, and New Orleans will be tough but the schedule is balanced out somewhat with games against Carolina, Buffalo, and Denver. The key to the season could be the three-game home stand that follows the bye week. Three wins there could mean a good season.

Good luck predicting what's going to happen.

What with the change at head coach and so many changes to the team roster, plus the delay in the season, I'm having a hard time mustering much enthusiasm for the Titans this year.

I've kind of got the doldrums, too. When September rolls around, I think I'll get more interested, but right now, I'm more interested in my fantasy team.
