Jamming In January: Calendar Highlights
The Music City Group Calendar Round-up
January is Jamming Already!
Here's the Happenings in the Music City This Month
The Titans are keeping their postseason hopes alive with a huge Wild-Card game against the New England Patriots scheduled for January 5th. QB Ryan Tannehill is the AFC player of the month for December, and Derrick Henry holds the NFL rushing record for 2019 with over 1500 yards. Fingers crossed, but we’re feeling good about our chances.
The Predators got to open 2020 with a game in the open-air on New Year’s Day at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, TX. They lost to the Dallas Stars 4-2 in the newly minted Winter Classic, but showed some promise with a decent amount of shots on goal. Their own play-off hopes keep looking slimmer as they’ve fallen to 18-15 on the season, and Pekka Rinne’s goaltending percentage has dropped over 10 percent. They’ll play the Ducks, Bruins, Sabres, and Maple Leafs at Bridgestone this month.
THIS MONTH’S TOP EVENTS
