Tennessee Titans game history against Kansas City Chiefs

 

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansNashville, 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 Predators Sweep Road Trip With Win Over Calgary Flames 2-0

 

Nashville PredatorsClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators pulled six points from their just completed road trip with a 2-0 victory over the Calgary Flames.  Once again, Pekka Rinne stood tall for the Preds securing his third shut-out of the season.  This comes on the heels of Juuse Saros’ record setting shutout on Thursday against Edmonton.

Rinne stopped all 32 shots he faced against the Flames in the 2-0 win.  The shutout was the 46th of his career.  

As is usual for Nashville, they have problems getting started in the first period, as Calgary outshot the Preds 12-6.  Shots from TJ Brodie and Dougie Hamilton were deflected off the crossbar, something that plagued the Flames most of the night.
