The Tennessee Titans will play host to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers in the preseason, and will be involved in a pair of primetime games in August as well.

As announced earlier, the Titans will travel to Canton, Ohio, for the annual Pro Football Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 9 in a game against Buffalo that will be shown on NBC.

That game will feature the Titans in the throwback uniforms of the Houston Oilers as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the American Football League.

In addition, the Titans have a prime-time draw at Dallas on Aug. 21 where the Cowboys will be opening a new stadium. That game will be shown on Fox at 7 p.m. CDT.

Dates and times have not been determined as of yet on the Titans home games, but they will host the Buccaneers sometime during the weekend of Aug. 13-17, and Green Bay in the preseason finale the weekend of Sept. 3-4. The Titans are also scheduled to visit the Cleveland Browns the weekend of Aug. 27-30.

The Titans are scheduled to kick off the NFL regular season on Sept. 10 at Pittsburgh in a nationally televised game on NBC.
