The Tennessee Titans are embarking on their 2023-2024 season and have an exciting new addition in DeAndre Hopkins. Last season, the Tennessee Titans struggled especially in the second half when they gave up the AFC South to the Jacksonville Jaguars. They finished 7-10 overall and missed the playoffs. Ryan Tannehill will be Tennessee’s starting quarterback, but the battle for the backup position remains unclear and the team isn’t willing to say much. The preseason didn’t give any indication for the backup quarterback position as Malik Willis played most of the final two preseason games as Will Levis was limited with a quad injury.
DeAndre Hopkins is the most notable addition to the Tennessee Titans this season. Hopkins said that a lot of teams weren’t interested when he was cut by the Arizona Cardinals last May. However, Hopkins said that he’s using that as motivation to fuel him this season.
The Tennessee Titans struggled last season on the offensive side of the ball with limited weapons. Between opposing defenses focusing on Derrick Henry and the limited help he had, it was tough game to game. If the Titans weren’t giving the ball to Henry, they were giving it to Treylon Burks and occasionally Chigoziem Okonkwo. But opposing defenses eventually keyed in on the limited offensive weapons that the Tennessee Titans had and eventually figured them out. Hopkins will be a welcome addition for the Tennessee Titans to give Tannehill another offensive weapon for the 2023-2024 season.
There are a couple of major keys in order for the Tennessee Titans to see success throughout the 2023-2024 season. One of them is staying healthy as injuries impacted them a bit last season. The other key is to try to score more than 21 points a game. Multiple games last season saw opposing defenses hold the Tennessee Titans to just 21 or less. But the addition of Hopkins should provide the Tennessee Titans the ability to score 21 or more in each game throughout the 2023-2024 season.

Assuming the Tennessee Titans offense improves in the 2023-2024 season with the addition of Hopkins and most of the roster stays healthy, the Titans should be looking at a much improved season. It’ll likely be a battle between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans for the AFC South Crown. However, one edge the Titans have is that the Jaguars play both the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs while the Titans don’t. The Tennessee Titans have a good chance to make the 2023-2024 season a great one. They don’t have a super tough schedule, so coupled with the addition of Hopkins and a healthy roster, it should be a promising season. As far as a potential record goes, their basement is 9-8 while their ceiling is 13-4.
