According to a news release, the six men and women will not only attend Sunday’s game but also plunge a sword into the field to mark the countdown to kickoff.

Titans players will continue to don the “615 Strong” helmet decal during the game, in a nod to the city’s area code.

The number six is colored in Titans light blue to honor the six officers.
