Tennessee Titans, Denver Broncos Game History

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, 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.

Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills Series History

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, 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.

Dodging the Roadkill: T-Minus Two Weeks

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Two weeks from today, me and my crew will hit the road for the 2019 Sturgis Rally.  I’ve never been to that part of the country, much less the biggest motorcycle rally in the country, so you can imagine my excitement!  

It’s a “bucket list” item.

I committed to joining three other brothers on this trip last year, and I’ve been counting down the days ever since.  I’m mostly going for the amazing riding opportunities, but I can’t wait to soak it all in.

There WAS a time in my life when I was more excited about the late nights, the bars, the concerts, and “mixing” with others, but at this stage of my life, I’ll be lucky to stay up late enough to see the sun go down!

Sturgis at night.
