Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – There have been 48 all-time regular season and postseason games between the Tennessee Titans and the Oakland Raiders organizations, two of the original eight members of the American Football League. This week marks the 11th time the clubs have met in the preseason.

They are currently tied 5-5 in the preseason series, which began in 1961 with a contest in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The rivalry has been filled with historically significant contests, including their very first matchup. On September 11th, 1960, the Houston Oilers defeated the Raiders 37-22 in the first game of either franchise’s existence.

The Raiders currently hold a 28-20 advantage in the series, including a 4-0 mark against the Titans in postseason play. They have met in an AFL Playoff Game (1969), an AFL Championship Game (1967), an AFC Wild  Card Game (1980) and most recently the 2002 AFC Championship Game.

The Raiders have a considerable lead in the series at home. The Oilers/Titans have won only five of 20 games on the road against the Raiders, including a mark of 2-11 at Oakland Alameda Coliseum.

The Titans have achieved their greatest margin of victory in a game against the Raiders (55-0 on 9/9/61) but also suffered their third-worst defeat against them (56-7 in a playoff game on 12/21/69).

They played in every season from 2001-05, including two meetings during the 2002 campaign, both of which resulted in Titans losses at Oakland — the first in the regular season and the second in the AFC Championship Game.

The Titans won three consecutive battles with the Raiders from 2007– 2013. At Nissan Stadium, the Titans won 13-9 in 2007 and 38-13 in 2010.

In the 2010 season opener, the Titans used two rushing touchdowns from Chris Johnson and two passing touchdowns from Vince Young in the win. At Oakland Alameda Coliseum on November 24th, 2013, the Titans earned a dramatic 23-19 victory after Ryan Fitzpatrick connected on a 10-yard touchdown pass with wide receiver Kendall Wright with only 10 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.

The most recent Titans-Raiders game occurred on November 29th, 2015. After the Titans went ahead 21-17 with less than five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr orchestrated a 90-yard drive late in the fourth quarter, culminating with the game-winning touchdown pass to wide receiver Seth Roberts.
