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.

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 – The Houston Oilers and Boston Patriots were charter members of the American Football League in 1960. In the league’s inaugural season, the Oilers swept both games, winning 24-10 in New England and 37-21 in Houston. The teams met 20 times as part of the AFL (1960-69), with the Patriots earning a 10-9-1 advantage.
Upon the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, the Oilers moved to the AFC Central Division, and the Patriots began play in the AFC East. They officially became the New England Patriots in 1971.
Tennessee Titans (9-7) at New England Patriots (12-4)

Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans (9-7) travel to New England this week to face the AFC East champion Patriots (12-4) in an AFC wild card playoff game. Kickoff at Gillette Stadium (capacity 65,878) is scheduled for 8:15pm EST/7:15pm CST on Saturday, January 4th.
This will mark the second playoff game between the two clubs in a three-year span. The Titans traveled to New England for a divisional game following the 2017 campaign and were defeated by the eventual AFC champions. In three all-time playoff meetings between the two charter American Football League teams, the Patriots own a 2-1 advantage.
In the first meeting of 2019, played on September 15th, the Colts invaded Nissan Stadium and escaped with a 19-17 victory. The Titans held the lead going into the fourth quarter, but a four-yard touchdown pass from Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett to receiver T.Y. Hilton with less than five minutes remaining in regulation was enough to give Indianapolis the win.
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 for the last 18 years they have been members of the AFC South.
The teams have met a total of 50 times, with the Titans holding a 29-21 advantage. For eight consecutive seasons (2009–2016), the Titans and Jaguars split the annual series before Tennessee took both matchups in 2017 and 2018.

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.
