Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs are historic rivals that played an integral role in the formation of the current NFL landscape.
In 1959, late Titans owner K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr. and the late Lamar Hunt, founder of the Chiefs, spearheaded the “Foolish Club,” a group of eight original American Football League teams that would begin play in 1960.
Adams’ Oilers played in Houston until moving to Tennessee in 1997, while Hunt’s original Dallas Texans moved to Kansas City in 1963. In 1970, the AFL and NFL merged, and the Oilers and Chiefs became members of the American Football Conference.
Nashville, TN – The Broncos scored 31 points in the second half to give them a 51-28 victory over the Titans at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. The Titans led at one point in the first half 21-10, but after that, the Broncos scored 24 unanswered points. Denver scored on each of its last seven possessions, excluding a final set of kneel-downs at the end of the game.
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning completed 39 of 59 passes for 397 yards and four touchdowns without throwing an interception. He accounted for the second-highest number of attempts and completions against the Titans in the franchise’s history, behind only a 40-of-61 performance by Colt McCoy on October 2nd, 2011.
Nashville, TN – There have been only 11 all-time meetings in the regular season between the Tennessee Titans and the Chicago Bears. The Bears lead the series 6-5. The visiting team has won the last four meetings in the series, dating back to 1998.
Most recently, the Bears visited Tennessee on November 4th, 2012 and left with a 51-20 victory. Their point total remains the most ever scored by a visiting team at Nissan Stadium. In the win, quarterback Jay Cutler and wide receiver Brandon Marshall connected for three touchdown passes.
Nashville, TN – Jake Locker completed a 34-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter with 15 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, giving the Tennessee Titans a dramatic 20-17 win over the San Diego Chargers at Nissan Stadium (then LP Field).
The Titans scored 10 points in the final six-and-a-half minutes, beginning with a 37-yard field goal by Rob Bironas that cut San Diego’s lead to 17-13.
The Chargers then ran nearly four minutes off the clock with six consecutive running plays. But a holding penalty helped stall the drive, and Mike Scifres was brought on to punt.
Tennessee Titans (4-4) vs. San Diego Chargers (3-5)
Sunday, November 6th, 2016 | 3:25pm CST/1:25pm PST
Nashville, TN – This week the Tennessee Titans (4-4) begin the second half of their season with a trip to take on the San Diego Chargers (3-5). Kickoff at Qualcomm Stadium (capacity 70,000) is scheduled for 3:25pm CST/1:25pm PST on Sunday, November 6th.
If the Titans can find a way to win in San Diego, where success has eluded the franchise since 1990, they would own four wins over a five-game span. The last time they could lay claim to such a run was 2010.
Nashville, TN – This week’s game marks the 65th all-time meeting in the regular season between the Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns. In the previous 64 outings, the Browns own a 35-29 advantage, including separate nine- and six-game winning streaks by the Browns.
The Titans’ nine-game losing streak against the Browns from 1970-74 is tied for the longest in franchise history (Oakland, 1966-73).
Additionally, the clubs have played one playoff game, a 24-23 Wild Card win by the Oilers in 1988.

Five of the last seven regular season meetings have been played at Hard Rock Stadium. The clubs met there in the 2004 season opener (September 11th), a 17-9 Titans victory that was played on a Saturday rather than Sunday due to the impending landfall of Hurricane Ivan.
