The Tennessee Titans were high-profile members on the Nashville Predators bandwagon in their run through the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and the Predators returned the favor Sunday.

The Predators showed up en masse in personalized Titans jerseys, and defenseman Roman Josi planted the 12th Titan Sword of Honor before Tennessee's season opener against the Oakland Raiders in Nashville on Sunday.

Members of the Titans, such as offensive lineman Taylor Lewan and tight end Delanie Walker were prominent attendees at home games during Nashville's run to the Stanley Cup Final this past spring.

Defenseman P.K. Subban, who was the 12th Titan before their game against the Indianapolis Colts last year, was there again Sunday and chronicled the action across social media.
