Tennessee Titans history against Baltimore Ravens

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans and the Baltimore Ravens have developed a heated rivalry over the course of 26 all-time meetings since the series originated in 1996, highlighted by five fiercely contested postseason contests—most recently a 20-13 Ravens wild-card victory on January 10th, 2021.

No team has faced the Titans/Oilers more in postseason history than the Ravens, despite the first such matchup not occurring until January 2001. Including all regular season and postseason games, the series is tied 13-13.

The two teams played together in the AFC Central Division for six seasons after the Ravens relocated to Baltimore from Cleveland in 1996. Realignment in the league in 2002 took the Titans to the AFC South and the Ravens to the AFC North, ending their twice-yearly meetings. In the 13 games since realignment, the Titans lead 7-6.
The Ravens last visited Tennessee in the regular season on October 14th, 2018 and handed the Titans a 21-0 defeat. It marked the first and only time the Titans have been shut out at Nissan Stadium.
The next time they clashed was January 11th, 2020, when the Titans went to M&T Bank Stadium for a divisional playoff game and came away with a 28-12 victory over the No. 1 seed Ravens. Derrick Henry rushed for 195 yards in the contest.
In a rematch on November 22nd, 2020, the Titans traveled to Baltimore again and took the game to overtime. Tied 24-24, Henry ran for a game-ending, 29-yard touchdown to provide a 30-24 win.
Then, following the 2020 regular season, the Ravens visited Nissan Stadium and rode Lamar Jackson’s 136 rushing yards to a 20-13 win in the first round of the playoffs. It was the fifth time in five Titans-Ravens postseason games that the road team prevailed.
The Titans controlled the majority of the outcomes for the first five years of the series, winning six out of their first nine games. Then, in 2000, the Ravens stole the momentum. Despite owning the NFL’s best record at 13-3, the Titans lost to the Ravens at home in the regular season—the Titans’ first-ever loss at Nissan Stadium—and then again in a divisional playoff game the same year. The playoff win launched the Ravens to their eventual Super Bowl XXXV Championship.
The Ravens went on to win a total of five consecutive games over the Titans until the 2003 playoffs, when the Titans won at Baltimore in a wild card playoff game on a 46-yard Gary Anderson field goal in the final minute of play.

Five years later at Nissan Stadium, the two clubs met again in the playoffs, this time in the 2008 divisional round. Matt Stover’s 43-yard field goal with less than a minute on the clock provided the Ravens a 13-10 victory over the top-seeded Titans.
