Nashville, TN – There also have been 12 all-time meetings in the regular season between the Tennessee Titans and the Chicago Bears franchises. The series is tied 6-6, and the visiting team has won the last five meetings, dating back to 1998.
Most recently, the Titans traveled to Chicago for a Week 12 battle during the 2016 season and escaped with a 27-21 victory. After falling behind 7-0, they scored 27 unanswered points and withstood a furious fourth-quarter rally by the Bears to clinch the win. Quarterback Marcus Mariota completed 15 of 23 passes for 226 yards with two touchdowns and added 46 rushing yards.
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 – There have been 78 combined regular season and postseason meetings between the Tennessee Titans/Houston Oilers and Pittsburgh Steelers in a rivalry that dates back to 1970. The Steelers lead the series 46-32.
There is no other team the Titans/Oilers have met in their history as often as the Steelers, with the Cincinnati Bengals being next most common opponent at 75 games.
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills contest brings together two of the original teams of the American Football League, founded by two of the visionaries who helped set in motion one of the most significant eras in football history.
It was in 1960 that K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr.’s then-Houston Oilers and Ralph Wilson, Jr.’s Bills became two of the eight teams that began play in the newly-formed league. Adams, Wilson and the other original AFL owners were dubbed the “Foolish Club” for their choice to accept the seemingly impossible task of competing with the National Football League.
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 – The Tennessee Titans and the Baltimore Ravens have developed a fierce rivalry over the course of 23 all-time meetings since the series originated in 1996. The frequency of the encounters has slowed, however, with the clubs playing only four times since the start of the 2009 season.
The Ravens have a 12-11 edge in the highly competitive series. Of the 23 games the teams have played against each other, 12 have been decided by four points or less, with the Titans holding a 7-5 advantage in those meetings.
Nashville, TN – In head-to-head regular season matchups, the Tennessee Titans and New Orleans Saints have played a total of 14 times, with the Titans holding a 8-5-1 advantage. That includes a four-game winning streak by the Titans that was broken with a Saints victory in 2011.
The most recent meeting at Nissan Stadium was on December 11th, 2011, when the Saints escaped with a 22-17 victory. Titans rookie quarterback Jake Locker entered the game for an injured Matt Hasselbeck in the second quarter and nearly pulled out an improbable victory.
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans have played fewer games against the Carolina Panthers than any other NFL team. There have been just five regular season matchups and three preseason meetings (2010, 2016 and 2017) since the Panthers began play as an expansion team in 1995.
The Titans won three consecutive regular season games in the series after losing the initial meeting, but the Panthers bounced back with a 27-10 win at Nissan Stadium on November 15th, 2015.
Nashville, TN – In 11 all-time meetings between the Tennessee Titans and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Titans have won nine of the games in the series, which dates back to Tampa Bay’s expansion season of 1976. The Titans won five consecutive meetings from 1989 through 2003.
The first game between the two franchises was a historic occasion. On September 12th, 1976, the Buccaneers, led by head coach John McKay and quarterback Steve Spurrier, played the inaugural game in team history against the Oilers at the Astrodome. The Oilers, coached by Bum Phillips and quarterbacked by Dan Pastorini, won the game by a final score of 20-0.
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.
