The delay was caused by an incident involving another plane that slid off the runway at Nashville International Airport, although a spokesperson for the airport said weather was not a factor, per the Tennessean.
The Titans' departure team had been moved up, according to Paul Kuharsky, a beat writer for the team. However, the incident involving the other plane, which was scheduled to take off at noon local time, caused the delay.
Fifth-seeded Tennessee (10-7) will take on the top-seeded New England Patriots (13-3) at 8:15 p.m. on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
