The Tennessee Titans (0-0) begin the regular season this week with a trip to face the Cleveland Browns (0-0). Kickoff at FirstEnergy Stadium (capacity 67,431) is scheduled for 12 noon CT.
The contest marks the second season opener in franchise history against the Browns. The only other time it happened was a Browns win in Cleveland in 1971. The Titans are 30-29 all-time on Kickoff Weekend, including a 10-10 mark in the Titans era, which began in 1999. They won three consecutive openers on the road from 2013–2015 before suffering Week 1 losses the past three years, including last season’s seven-hour affair at Miami due to a pair of weather stoppages.
After decades of futility, the Cleveland Browns Game enter the season with a historic set of expectations as the franchise looks for its first playoff berth in 16 seasons and its first AFC North division banner since 1989.
Browns games this year will be on either CBS (11 games–televised in select markets), Fox (2 games–televised in select markets), NBC (1 game–nationally televised) or ESPN (2 games–nationally televised), while one of the Fox games (Nov. 14 vs. Pittsburgh) will also be on Amazon Prime.

Browns 2019 Season Preview
The Browns were already on their way up last season, rebounding from an 0-16 season with a 7-8-1 record. Former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield had a lot to do with that, reeling off a record-setting season despite starting just 13 games.
Mayfield passed for a rookie record 27 touchdowns last season. The former Oklahoma Heisman winner also collected 3,725 passing yards and helped the Browns finish 7-8-1, winning five of their final seven games.
This season, Mayfield has a new No. 1 wide receiver to work with in Odell Beckham Jr., who came over from the Giants via a blockbuster trade in the offseason. He’ll combine forces with his best friend and former teammate at LSU, Jarvis Landry — a Pro Bowler in his own right.
Mayfield and OBJ have been working on their chemistry through the offseason, and the former Heisman winning QB seems to have won over his new star wide receiver.
“When you have a guy like that, you never want to let him down,” Beckham said during training camp “There’s a reason he was the first pick. I just let him tell me what he thinks I should do and I’m just gonna do that. And he’s going to put it where it needs to be.”
The defense has received much less attention than the offense, but the Browns made some big additions there as well, adding Olivier Vernon and Sheldon Richardson. They’ll join forces with Larry Ogunjobi and Pro Bowl defensive end Myles Garrett, who has his eyes set on the NFL’s defensive player of the year honor.
“As the best defensive player in the league – that is the goal. That is the only way to stamp your name in the history books,” Garrett said. “If you are the best defensive player, you have to win Defensive Player of the Year. That is always the goal. If I don’t win that, it is about being a team player and taking my team to the Super Bowl.”
First-year head coach Freddie Kitchens has done a good job tempering expectations despite his team getting massive attention. However, the skipper assured the bar is high for the Browns.
“I want everybody to understand this,” he said. “Our goal here with the Cleveland Browns, as long as I’m here, will always be to win the Super Bowl. That’s the last time I’m going to say that. Just know and make it a given that that’s what I believe to my core.”
