Tennessee Titans Series History against Arizona Cardinals

 

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – This week’s game renews a rare rivalry between the Tennessee Titans and the Arizona Cardinals. Of all opponents that have been in existence since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, the Cardinals have played the Oilers/Titans the fewest amount of times—10 games total. The Cardinals lead the series 6-4, including a win in the most recent matchup in 2013.

There have been just three Titans-Cardinals games (2005 and 2009) between the clubs in their current incarnations—the Cardinals played in St. Louis from 1960-87 (they played in Chicago prior to that), and the Titans were the Houston Oilers (1960-96) and Tennessee Oilers (1997-98) prior to taking their current name in 1999.
