Nashville, TN - Just minutes after Nashville Mayor John Cooper announced that the Tennessee Titans would not be permitted to have fans in Nissan Stadium when they opened their season, Titans players and coaches began calling colleagues in the Cincinnati Bengals club to ask what it's like to play in a stadium without fans.
"The Bengals have been playing without fans in the stadium for years," said one Titan. "I figured they would have great insight if they were willing to share."
Several Titan coaches also spoke to counterparts on the Cincinnati team that finished 2-14 team in 2019.
"My buddy says it really sucks, but you get used to it after a few years." said one Titans coach.
All Titans player and coaches we spoke to say they are hopeful that the absence of fans will only be for the start of the season and things will get back to normal later this fall.
No one in the Bengals camp returned our requests for comment.
