The Tennessee Titans (1-6) travel west to play the San Francisco 49ers (3-4) Sunday at Candlestick Park (3:15 p.m. CST). The trip is a rare one for the Titans, who last played a regular season game at Candlestick Park on Oct. 3, 1999.
That game was the team’s first loss in a 13-win regular season. Since then, the Titans won the only other matchup, defeating the 49ers at LP Field on Nov. 27, 2005. For the first time, Jeff Fisher and Mike Singletary will face each other on opposite sidelines as head coaches. The two were a part of the same 1981 Chicago Bears draft class and remained teammates through the Bears’ 1985 Super Bowl Championship season. Singletary was named head coach of the 49ers midway through the 2008 season.
Sunday’s game will be televised regionally on CBS, including Nashville affiliate WTVF NewsChannel 5. Ian Eagle will handle play-by-play duties, while Rich Gannon will provide color commentary. The Titans Radio Network, including Nashville flagship 103.3-WKDF, will broadcast the game across the Mid-South with the “Voice of the Titans” Mike Keith, color commentator Frank Wycheck, sideline reporter Cody Allison and gameday host Larry Stone.
Fans are invited to join Titans Radio and Coors Light at the Crow’s Nest (2221 Bandywood Drive in Green Hills) to watch the game. Come out to meet Titans Cheerleaders, while enjoying drink specials and great food. Doors open at 11 a.m.
