Nashville, TN – In Week 12 of the 2019 season, the Tennessee Titans hosted the AFC South opponent Jacksonville Jaguars and won by a score of 42-20. Tennessee accumulated 471 total net yards on offense, including 248 net yards in the third quarter alone.
Both teams held each other scoreless through the first quarter. Tennessee got on the board first in the second stanza, as QB Ryan Tannehill led the offense on a seven-play, 73-yard scoring drive. With help from a 24-yard reception by WR Corey Davis, Tannehill ran into the end zone for a 21-yard touchdown and a 7-0 lead.
Nashville, TN – The Jacksonville Jaguars are the Tennessee Titans’ longest-standing division rival. The clubs have met at least twice each year since Jacksonville began play as an expansion franchise in 1995. For the first seven seasons of the rivalry they played in the AFC Central, and since 2002 they have been members of the AFC South.
The teams have met a total of 51 times, with the Titans holding a 30-21 advantage. For eight consecutive seasons (2009–2016), the Titans and Jaguars split the annual series before Tennessee took both matchups in 2017 and 2018. In 2019, the they exchanged wins once again.

For the first time, the Titans will host a game at Nissan Stadium with no fans present. In August, the Titans and the city of Nashville announced the decision that no fans would attend the contest due to COVID-19 Coronavirus restrictions. No decision has been announced for the remaining Titans home dates, including three games in October.
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 – Perhaps Tennessee Titans executive vice president/general manager Jon Robinson’s two most critical moves since the AFC Championship game were locking up a pair of the team’s own free agents with new, multi-year contracts—quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry.
Tannehill, acquired in a trade with the Miami Dolphins, was a catalyst for the team’s resurgence in 2019, taking control as the starter in Week 7 and finishing the campaign with a league-best 117.5 passer rating. He was named to his first Pro Bowl and voted the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year.
Nashville, TN – While the Tennessee Titans have several veterans scheduled to become unrestricted free agents this offseason, including Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry, Jon Robinson has crafted a roster replete with young, promising talent. Possibly no player embodies the combination of hope and early productivity more than A.J. Brown, last year’s second-round pick.
Brown, the 51st overall draft selection in 2019, led Tennessee in every major receiving category as a rookie, totaling 52 catches for 1,051 yards and eight touchdowns.
Nashville, TN – Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry finished 2019 with a league-high 1,540 yards on 303 rushing attempts (4.8 avg.). His 16 rushing touchdowns put him in a tie with Green Bay Packers’s Aaron Jones atop the league leaderboard and placed second in franchise annals.
Over the final six weeks of the regular season plus three playoff appearances, Henry totaled seven 100-yard games.
Nashville, TN – Following an impressive 43-13 win at the Cleveland Browns in the season opener, the Tennessee Titans lost four of their next five contests, including a shutout at the Denver Broncos on October 13th. At 2-4, there was little indication that the Titans would be playing well into January.
With a home date against the Los Angeles Chargers next on the schedule, Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel made the decision to insert eighth-year veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill into the starting lineup for the first time since he arrived in Tennessee.
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans and the Kansas City Chiefs are historic rivals that played an integral role in the formation of the current NFL landscape.
In 1959, late Titans owner K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr. and the late Lamar Hunt, founder of the Chiefs, spearheaded the “Foolish Club,” a group of eight original American Football League teams that would begin play in 1960.
