Nashville, TN – Tennessee Titans executive vice president/general manager Jon Robinson and head coach Mike Vrabel hope to take the next step with a Titans team that was one game from the Super Bowl in 2019. The Titans fell to the eventual Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC title game, ending a memorable run on the heels of a 2-4 start to the regular season.
They finished the season at 9-7, earned a wild card berth, and then went on the road to knock off the New England Patriots and the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens in the first two playoff rounds, respectively.
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 – On January 19th, 2020, the final chapter was written on a memorable season for the Tennessee Titans. Appearing in the organization’s first AFC championship game in 17 years, the Titans’ storybook finish came up one win shy of a Super Bowl berth.
When the Titans fell to the eventual Super Bowl LIV champion Chiefs in Kansas City, a season that began inauspiciously managed to end suddenly and prematurely.
