Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Titans and Seahawks have met 17 times during the regular season and postseason. The Seahawks lead the series 10-7, although the Titans have won the lone playoff game between the clubs. Seattle has won eight of the last 11 matchups.

The Seahawks visited Nissan Stadium most recently on September 24th, 2017. The Titans used 115 rushing yards by DeMarco Murray and two touchdown passes by Marcus Mariota to pull out a 33-27 win. Murray picked up 75 of his rushing yards on a touchdown run.

The last time the Titans and Seahawks met at Lumen Field was October 13th, 2013. The score was tied 10-10 at the start of the fourth quarter, but the Seahawks surged ahead for a 20-13 victory. The Seahawks defense limited Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to 171 yards and intercepted two of his passes.

In a memorable 2009 season finale at Lumen Field (January 3rd, 2010), Titans running back Chris Johnson became the sixth player in NFL history to reach 2,000 rushing yards in a season, and he also set a new NFL record with 2,509 yards from scrimmage in a season. His final carry of the day resulted in a one-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to give the Titans a 17-13 win.

The Seahawks began to play as an expansion team in the NFC West in 1976. One season later, they were moved to the AFC West and played the then-Houston Oilers for the first time. The Oilers won the initial meeting (November 20th) by a 22-10 final score.

In a 1987 Wild Card Playoff game, the Oilers defeated the Seahawks at the Astrodome 23-20 in overtime. It was the Oilers’ first playoff victory since the 1979 season.

The Seahawks migrated from the AFC West to the NFC West to begin the 2002 season, when the league was realigned to eight four-team divisions. The same year Lumen Field opened. Prior to that, the Seahawks played their home games at the Kingdome.
