Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans and New York Jets have met 45 total times in the regular season and postseason during the last 61 seasons. The Titans lead the series 25-19-1, including a win in the only playoff matchup.
The last time the Titans and Jets played was December 2nd, 2018 at Nissan Stadium. The Titans trailed 16-0 in the first half and 22-13 in the fourth quarter before coming back to win 26-22. Marcus Mariota completed a go-ahead, 11-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Corey Davis with 36 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.
The Jets, like the then-Houston Oilers, were charter members of the American Football League. From the league’s founding in 1960 through the 1962 season, they played as the New York Titans before being renamed the Jets for the 1963 season. With the exception of 1967, the Jets and Oilers played twice each season from 1960-69, and the Oilers won the first six meetings in the series.
In 1991, the Oilers began a string of six consecutive victories against the Jets, including a 17-10 victory in a 1991 AFC Wild Card Game. In that contest, Warren Moon completed a pair of touchdown passes to Ernest Givins and the Oilers defense stopped the Jets inside Houston’s five-yard line twice in the second half to preserve the victory.
