The Tennessee Titans open the 2022 NFL regular season against the New York Giants on Sept. 11 at Nissan Stadium.

The Titans managed to get younger at various positions but still kept most of their core players in the mix, allowing Tennessee to remain a favorite to win the AFC South again.

The Titans have 17 of 22 starters returning from last season. The defense is pretty much the same except for a new starter at one of the cornerback spots because of Jackrabbit Jenkins' release back in March. There will be four new starters on offense, including right tackle and left guard, along with two wide receiver spots.

Trading A.J. Brown to the Philadelphia Eagles created a huge void in the passing attack, but the Titans will likely take a committee approach to replace Brown's production.

The roster will be cut to 53 players by 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Here is a projection:

QUARTERBACK (2): Ryan Tannehill, Malik Willis
