The Tennessee Titans (6-3) travel to Green Bay this week to face the Packers (4-6) in prime time for the second time in three seasons. Kickoff at historic Lambeau Field (capacity 81,041) is scheduled for 7:15 PM CST on Thursday, November 17.

The Titans and Packers last met on a snowy Sunday night at Lambeau Field on December 27, 2020. The Packers prevailed 40-14 to cut the Titans’ all-time series lead to 7-6. Although the Titans are 4-3 all-time in Green Bay, they are looking for their first win there since 2004.

The contest will be broadcast on Prime Video. In Nashville, fans can watch the air on WTVF News Channel 5. The broadcast team includes broadcaster Al Michaels, analyst Kirk Herbstreit and reporter Kaylee Hartung.

In addition, Westwood One Sports will broadcast the game to a national radio audience. Play-by-play announcer Kevin Kugler and analyst Ben Leber have the call.

TITANS WIN FOR SIXTH TIME IN SEVEN GAMES

The Titans hosted the Denver Broncos last week, and after falling behind 10-0 in the first half, scored the final 17 points of the game to win 17-10. For the third consecutive season, they won at least six times in their first nine games.

The Titans defense held the Broncos off the scoreboard in the second half, adding six sacks and getting an interception by cornerback Terrance Mitchell in the final 20 seconds of the fourth quarter. The six sacks were the most in a regular season since Mike Vrabel took over as coach in 2018, and the performance gave the defense six straight games with three or more sacks, the franchise’s longest streak since 1979.

After missing two games with an ankle injury, quarterback Ryan Tannehill returned to the starting lineup and passed for 255 yards and a pair of touchdowns to receiver Nick Westbrook-Ikhine. Tannehill now has more wins (35 in the regular season and 37 including playoffs) than any other Titans/Oilers starting quarterback in his first four seasons with the organization.

Westbrook-Ikhine had a game-high 119 receiving yards on five catches while scoring his first career two-touchdown game.

THE PACKERS

After a three-game road swing, the Packers returned home last week to host the Dallas Cowboys. Despite a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter, they rallied to send the game into overtime and then used a 28-yard field goal in overtime to secure a 31-28 victory. It ended the Packers’ five-game losing streak.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the Associated Press Most Valuable Player. He earned the league’s top honor in 2021 for the fourth time in his career and the second year in a row. Only Peyton Manning (five) has more league MVP awards in NFL history than Rodgers. In 2022, Rodgers passed for 2,315 yards and 17 touchdowns with seven interceptions.

Green Bay is led by head coach Matt LaFleur, who was hired to his current position in 2019 after spending the 2018 season as the Titans’ offensive coordinator under coach Mike Vrabel. In his first three seasons at the helm, LaFleur guided Green Bay to three NFC North titles and 39 regular-season wins, the most in NFL history by a coach in his first three campaigns.
