By Nate LoCascio The Green Bay Packers will take on the Tennessee Titans in the preseason opener on Thursday night at Lambeau Field. For the second consecutive season, the Packers open the preseason at
home. Dating back to 2000, it is just the fifth time Green Bay has started the preseason on a Thursday (2005, 2012, 2015 2017). The Packers and Titans had previously opened the preseason against each other in 2014 in Tennessee.
It is the Titans’ first preseason trip to Green Bay since playing in the finale in 2008. The Packers and Titans have faced off in the preseason nine times in the previous 16 years, including each preseason from 2002-09. This is preseason meeting No. 12 between the two organizations, with the Titans holding an 8-3 advantage.
The Packers will stay at home for their second preseason game, welcoming the Pittsburgh Steelers to Lambeau Field for Midwest Shrine Game at 7 p.m. CDT on Thursday, Aug. 16.
