Nashville, TN – Behind the arm of quarterback Marcus Mariota, the Tennessee Titans overcame a double-digit deficit in the fourth quarter for just the fourth time in the Titans era—and first time since 2006—to defeat the Detroit Lions 16-15 at Ford Field and move to 1-1 on the season.
The Detroit defense controlled the game from early in the first quarter, when Lions defensive end Devin Taylor tackled running back DeMarco Murray in the end zone for a safety.
Nashville, TN – In Week 10 of the 2017 season, the Tennessee Titans had their second consecutive home game as they hosted the Cincinnati Bengals and won by a score of 24-20.
After forcing the Bengals to go three-and-out on Cincinnati’s opening drive, Tennessee took control of the scoreboard early with a 10-play, 84-yard scoring drive. RB DeMarco Murray rushed in his first touchdown of the day, a two-yarder to put the Titans up 7-0 early.
Nashville, TN – In the 61-year history of the organization, only one other NFL team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, has faced the Tennessee Titans/Houston Oilers more frequently than the Cincinnati Bengals. There have been 75 all-time meetings with the Bengals, while the Steelers have squared off 79 times against the Titans/Oilers.
The Bengals began play in 1968 as an expansion franchise in the American Football League and that season played the then-Oilers for the first time, a 27-17 Houston win at Cincinnati’s Nippert Stadium.
Nashville, TN – In what became a tale of two halves, the Tennessee Titans dropped a 25-16 decision to the Minnesota Vikings in the season opener at Nissan Stadium. Despite holding a 10-0 halftime lead, three second-half turnovers by the Titans, two of which were returned for scores, allowed the Vikings to take control late in the game.
Tennessee took an early lead in the first quarter on a 28-yard field goal by K Ryan Succop, and then constructed a 13-play, 73-yard drive late in the second quarter, capped by a six-yard touchdown pass from QB Marcus Mariota to RB DeMarco Murray.
Nashville, TN – This is the 43rd all-time meeting between the Denver Broncos and the Tennessee Titans, two of the eight charter members of the American Football League. The Titans lead the series with a 23-18-1 record, including a 22-16-1 record in the regular season and 1-2 mark in the playoffs.
While they met twice per year in nine out of 10 AFL seasons (1960-69), these two franchises have seen relatively little of each other in recent history. Outside of a pair of preseason games (1998 and 2006), they have played just seven times since the Titans moved to Tennessee, although they did square off a season ago.
Nashville, TN – Including the regular season and playoffs, this week marks the 51st all-time game between the Tennessee Titans and the Oakland Raiders organizations, two of the original eight members of the American Football League.
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.
In the first meeting of 2019, played on September 15th, the Colts invaded Nissan Stadium and escaped with a 19-17 victory. The Titans held the lead going into the fourth quarter, but a four-yard touchdown pass from Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett to receiver T.Y. Hilton with less than five minutes remaining in regulation was enough to give Indianapolis the win.
Nashville, TN – In Week 14 of the 2016 season, the Tennessee Titans won their third-consecutive home game for the first time since the 2009 season with a 13-10 victory over the defending Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos at Nissan Stadium.
The run game for both teams proved to be the difference, as the Titans accumulated 180 yards on the ground and the Tennessee defense contained Denver to just 18 rushing yards—the fifth-lowest rushing yardage total allowed by the defense in franchise history.
Nashville, TN – This is the 42nd all-time meeting between the Tennessee Titans and the Denver Broncos, two of the eight charter members of the American Football League. The Titans lead the series with a 23-17-1 record, including a 22-15-1 record in the regular season and 1-2 mark in the playoffs.
While they met twice per year in nine out of 10 AFL seasons (1960-69), these two franchises have seen little of each other in recent history. Outside of a pair of preseason games (1998 and 2006), they have played just six times since the Titans moved to Tennessee.
Nashville, TN – This week’s game will mark the 50th all-time contest between the Tennessee Titans and the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts lead the series 33-16.
The last time the Titans and Colts met at Nissan Stadium was the 2018 season finale on Sunday night, December 30th, 2018. It was a contest to decide who would clinch a playoff berth as the AFC’s sixth seed. The Titans were forced to play the game without injured starting quarterback Marcus Mariota. The Colts were opportunistic and pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 33-17 victory.
