The Dallas Cowboys will play their first game in their $1.15 billion dollar stadium on Friday as they host the Tennessee Titans in a preseason matchup that can be seen on Fox television. It is likely to be a rare occasion where the stadium gets more of the publicity than the game. “I had heard everybody saying it’s big and da-da, da-da,” receiver Roy Williams. “Then (I) finally saw it with my own eyes and it’s the greatest thing on earth.”
The 2009 NFL preseason begins on Sunday night in a nationally televised game on NBC as the Buffalo Bills face the Tennessee Titans in the Hall of Fame Game from Canton, Ohio. It will mark the debut of Terrell Owens for the Buffalo Bills.
The two best teams in the AFC square off this weekend in a huge battle for late season supremacy. The Steelers and the Titans will be battling for the right to earn home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Tennessee started the year 10-0 and has been considered the best team in the AFC all season. However, in the past few weeks the Steelers have come up with some impressive victories over Dallas and Baltimore.
The Tennessee Titans will try and rebound from their first loss of the season as they take on the winless Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving. The Lions could become the first team in NFL history to go 0-16, a prospect that looks more realistic each week. “No one is quitting, but we don’t know how to win,” said Lions defensive tackle Shaun Cody.
The undefeated Tennessee Titans get their next test on the way to a possible perfect season as Brett Favre and the New York Jets visit on Sunday. The Titans are looking to become only the 13th team in NFL history to begin a season 11-0. To do so they will have to slow down Favre and the Jets. “I think it’s a measuring stick for us to find out who we are and what we’re capable of doing,” said Favre.
The Tennessee Titans look to remain unbeaten as they host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. The Titans are coming off their biggest win of the season, a 31-21 win over Indianapolis on Monday. "We can't be happy," quarterback Kerry Collins said, "We've got to put this game behind us and focus on the next game. I think that's what allowed us to put this streak together is the fact that regardless of what happened the week before, we are able to put it behind us and move on to the next opponent."
The unbeaten Tennessee Titans face their stiffest test of the season on Monday night as they host the Indianapolis Colts. The Titans are perfect on the season but their schedule has been fairly easy so far. “A lot of people still don’t respect us and feel like we haven’t played top-notch talent in the league yet,” safety Chris Hope said. “They’re still not sure about how good we are, and what better way to show them than on Monday Night Football against Peyton Manning and the Colts, one of the premier teams in the league.”
The unbeaten Tennessee Titans host the Minnesota Vikings in what should be an entertaining game on Sunday. The Vikings have the exciting Adrian Peterson while the Titans have a tough defense and an efficient offense. The Titans will be trying for their best start in franchise history. They are 3-0 for only the third time and the first since 1999, the year they went to the Super Bowl.
