Now that the regular season has come to an end, the NFL has released each team’s opponent list for the 2011 season. Each team’s schedule is determined by four main factors.
- Each team gets a home and away game against their three division opponents.
- Each team plays four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle.
- Each team plays four teams from another division from the opposite conference on a rotating four-year cycle.
- Each team is schedule two intraconference games which is determined from the standings from the previous season (first place team against a first place team, second place team against a second place team, etc.). These games are matched up based off two-same conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season.
In 2011, the four teams within the AFC South are scheduled to play against the AFC North and NFC South. Since the Tennessee Titans finished at the bottom of the division, they are scheduled to play against the last-place teams from the AFC East and AFC West.
Here’s a list of the Titans opponents for the 2011 season:
Home: Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Away: Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers
