Nashville, TN – There have been only 12 all-time matchups in the regular season between the Tennessee Titans and Green Bay Packers. The Titans, who hold a 7-5 advantage in the series, have won the only three meetings that have been played at Nissan Stadium.
The two clubs have played nearly as many times in the preseason as the regular season. In 11 matchups, the Titans lead the preseason series 8-3. Beginning in 2002, the Titans and Packers met in eight consecutive preseasons, with the Titans earning a 6-2 record in those games.
The Titans and Packers last met on November 13th, 2016 at Nissan Stadium.
The Titans won by a final score of 47-25, tying for the 11th best single-game point total in Titans/Oilers history and recording the club’s biggest output since a 47-point outing versus the St. Louis Rams on December 13th, 2009. Then second-year quarterback Marcus Mariota threw for 295 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions (149.8 passer rating) in the win.
The last time the Titans and Packers last met at Lambeau Field was December 23rd, 2012. The temperature at kickoff was 24 degrees with a wind chill of 14. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was unfazed, passing for 342 yards and three touchdowns and rushing for another score, as his team coasted to a 55-7 victory. It became the third largest margin of defeat in Titans/Oilers history.
On November 2nd, 2008, the two clubs went to overtime in a memorable tilt at Nissan Stadium. Rob Bironas made a 41-yard field goal in overtime to give the Titans the win after hitting the upright on a 47-yard attempt at the end of regulation.
Overall, each team has fared slightly better on the road than at home against the other, with the Titans owning a 4-2 record at Lambeau Field and the Packers building a 3-3 record at Houston/Tennessee. The trend began with the first ever Oilers-Packers game on November 19th, 1972, three seasons into the NFL-AFL merger. In that game, played at the Houston Astrodome, the Packers won 23-10.
