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.
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans and the 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 – After 14 meetings in the regular season, the Tennessee Titans and Atlanta Falcons series is tied 7-7. The series dates back to 1972, three seasons into the AFL-NFL merger.
The Falcons won the last two matchups in 2011 and 2015 after the Titans took five consecutive meetings from 1993 to 2007. The Falcons won four out of the first five contests from 1972 to 1984.
This week marks the first time the Titans will play at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which opened in 2017.
Nashville, TN – This week’s game marks the 67th all-time meeting between the Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns. In the previous 66 outings, the Browns own a 35-31 advantage, including separate nine- and six-game winning streaks by the Browns.
The Titans’ nine-game losing streak against the Browns from 1970-74 is tied (Oakland, 1966-73) for the second-longest in franchise history. The clubs have played one playoff game, a 24-23 Wild Card win by the Oilers in 1988.
Nashville, TN – There have been 78 combined regular season and postseason meetings between the Tennessee Titans/Houston Oilers and the 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.
In 1970, upon the merger of the American Football League and the National Football League, the Steelers and then-Oilers began play in the newly-formed AFC Central Division.
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans and the Baltimore Ravens have developed a fierce rivalry over the course of 22 all-time meetings since the series originated in 1996, including three playoff battles. The frequency of the encounters has slowed, however, with the clubs playing only three times since the start of the 2009 season.
Each team has won 11 times in the highly competitive series. Of the 22 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.
