The Green Bay Packers dominated their most recent matchup with the Tennessee Titans two years ago at Lambeau Field.

Running back AJ Dillon couldn’t be stopped all night long. He enjoyed a breakout performance in a snowy Lambeau.

Tennessee returns to Green Bay this season and should again be contenders in the AFC. It should make for an interesting matchup.

Last season

After an up-and-down start to the season that saw Tennessee go 2-2 after a surprise loss to the New York Jets, the team found some form.

The Titans would win six in a row to move to 8-2 before eventually finishing the regular season 12-5.

That was good for their second straight AFC South title, and the Titans also edged out the Kansas City Chiefs for the No. 1 seed in the conference. With that came a first-round bye and home-field advantage.

However, that’s where the good news ends. The Titans were beaten at home by the Cincinnati Bengals in the divisional round. Cincinnati would go all the way to the Super Bowl.

When is the game?

The Packers and Titans will meet at Lambeau Field in Week 11. It’s a Thursday Night Football showdown, kicking off at 7:15 p.m. CT on Thursday, Nov. 17.

Offseason additions/departures

It’s hard to truly say whether this has been a successful offseason for the Titans.

On one hand, they have traded for wide receiver Robert Woods and drafted Treylon Burks in the first round. They can be a great receiving duo. But the Titans also traded away Pro Bowler A.J. Brown.

On Day 2 of the draft, Tennessee selected cornerback Roger McCreary, tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere, and quarterback Malik Willis. Perhaps Willis will provide competition for Ryan Tannehill.

Last meeting with Packers

December 27, 2020: Packers won 40-14 at Lambeau Field

Player to watch

Treylon Burks: According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Aaron Rodgers wanted the Packers to draft Burks. He ended up going four picks earlier than the Packers at No. 18.

If Burks has a huge game against Green Bay, many will be wondering why they didn’t trade up to get him.
