    Tennessee Titans History

    After several unsuccessful bids to bring an NFL team to the city of Houston, local oilman Bud Adams founded the Houston Oilers in 1959. The franchise was one of eight charter teams in the American Football League.

    In the first three seasons of the AFL, the Oilers participated in all three AFL championship games, winning the inaugural AFL championship in 1960, backing it up in 1961 before losing the 1962 title in a double overtime thriller to the Dallas Texans (now Kansas City Chiefs).

    Quarterback and placekicker, George Blanda was named the AFL regular season MVP following the 1961 season after leading  the AFL in passing yards (3,330) and touchdown passes (36). His 36 touchdown passes were the most ever thrown by any NFL/AFL quarterback in a single season.

    The Oilers returned to the AFL championship game in 1967 after claiming their third Eastern division title. However were convincingly defeated 40-7 by the Raiders.

    Despite being one of the most dominant teams in the short tenure of the AFL, the Oilers did not fare as well following the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. 

    After four seasons in the NFL Houston had an accumulative record of nine wins, 45 losses and two draws. However things began to turn in 1975 when Bum Phillips was appointed as the head coach. 

    Phillips led the 1978 Oilers into their first NFL playoff appearance off the back of a 10-6 regular season. Rookie running back Earl Campbell rushed a league high and rookie record 1450 yards and recorded 13 touchdowns on his way to taking out the Offensive Rookie of the Year and NFL Offensive Player of the Year awards. 

    In their first postseason since the merger, the Oilers defeated the Dolphins and the Patriots to advance to their first AFC championship game, where Houston were defeated 34-5 by the eventual Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers.

    The following season Campbell once again led the league rushing for 1697 yards and a career high 19 touchdowns. Campbell was named the NFL Offensive Player of the Year for the second season in a row as well as becoming the franchise’s first NFL regular season MVP. 

    Houston won 11 games, once again advancing to an AFC championship game, only to be once again knocked out by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    A third consecutive Offensive Player of the Year quality season from Earl Campbell again led the Oilers to an 11-5 season. However Houston failed to progress past the AFC Wildcard game, after being defeated 27-7 by the Raiders in what would be Bum Phillips last game as head coach.

    In the next six years, the Oilers would not record a single winning season, as well as changing the head coach on five occasions before returning to the playoffs in 1987. 

    Between 1987 and 1993 Houston were a consistently good team in the regular season, recording seven consecutive 9+ win seasons and in doing so claiming their titles and sixth division titles in 1991 and 1993, as well as earning a playoff berth every year.

    However, this regular season consistency never transferred into postseason success, failing to progress past the AFC divisional round in each of their seven appearances. 

    Following the 1995 season, Bud Adams announced that the Oilers would be moving to Tennessee for the beginning of the 1998 season. As a result of the announcement Houston fans ultimately turned their back on the franchise as the Oilers embarked on their final two seasons in Houston.

    Only three games of the 1996 season attracted more than 30,000 people, with the franchise’s last game in Houston bringing in just over 15,000 people, estimated to be the smallest crowd in Oilers history.

    Due to the lack of attendance in 1996, the NFL, city of Houston and Oilers ownership elected to bring the move to Tennessee forward by a year, even though the team’s new stadium in Nashville, but it would not be ready until 1999. 

    While waiting for the stadium to be completed, the Tennessee Oilers commuted to Memphis for home games, essentially resulting in the Oilers playing 32 road games over the next two seasons.

    In 1998 Adams announced that the team would be changing its name to coincide with the opening of their new stadium in their new city. In November of 1998 it was announced that the team would be renamed as the Tennessee Titans prior to the beginning of the 1999 season.

    Jeff Fisher remained the head coach throughout the relocation, leading the Titans to a 13-3 record in their first official season in Tennessee, winning all of their home games in front of sell out crowds. 

    In the postseason, the Titans defeated Bills, Colts and Jaguars to claim their first ever AFC conference championship as well as advancing to their first ever Super Bowl appearance. 

    In a thrilling Super Bowl matchup against the Rams, Titans receiver Kevin Dyson was tackled one yard short of the end zone as time expired, resulting in the Rams holding on to their 23–16 lead. 

    In the wake of their 1999 Super Bowl appearance, the Titans took out the AFC South division in 2000 and 2002, while quarterback Steve McNair was named MVP of the 2003 season. 

    In spite of the team’s regular season success in the early 2000’s, Tennessee failed to progress out of the AFC.

    Following the 2003 season, the Titans did take out the AFC South division for the third time (2008), however failed to register another playoff victory prior to Fisher’s and the Titans mutually parting ways in 2011. 

    After an eight season drought, Tennessee returned to the playoff in 2017 off the back of a 9-7 season. The Titans won their first playoff game since 2003, defeating the Chiefs 22-21, before being defeated the following week by the Patriots. 

    Mike Vrabel became the franchise’s 19th head coach in 2018 and has since led the Titans to consecutive 9-7 seasons, including a deep playoff run in 2019. Led by Comeback Player of the Year, quarterback Ryan Tannehill and 2019 rushing yards leader Derrick Henry, the Titans. 

    The Titans surprised the league in the playoffs that followed the 2019 season defeating the Patriots and Ravens to advance to the AFC championship game. However were defeated by the eventual Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs. 

    Following their trip to the AFC championship game earlier in the year, the Tennessee Titans kicked off the 2020 NFL season with a five game winning streak.

    However, following that stretch of wins the Titans season was riddled with inconsistencies, going 6-5 in their final 11 games to finish the year with an 11-5 record. Although they finished with the same record (11-5) as the Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee won their first AFC South title since 2008 due to having a 5–1 record against division opponents, superior to the Colts 4–2 record.

    In the 2020 regular season, Derrick Henry again led the league in rushing yards and touchdowns, while also becoming the eighth player in NFL history to rush for over 2,000 yards in a single season. This resulted in Henry being named the 2020 Offensive Player of the Year.

    In their singular postseason game, the Titans faced the Ravens in a rematch of their Week 11 matchup, which Tennessee won. The Titans opened up the game with a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, however only managed one field goal in the final three quarters, resulting in a 20-13 loss.

    Expert 2021 / 2022 Picks & Preview on Tennessee Titans

    After a disappointing first round playoff exit to the Baltimore Ravens, the Titans have retooled to try and go further into the playoffs. The Titans have made big big splashes this offseason both on offense and defense in an attempt to give Mike Vrabel all the pieces to contend and win the Super Bowl. But with Ryan Tannehill at quarterback and a shaky defense, do the Titans have enough to compete amongst the best in the NFL?

    Front Office

    The Titans have rapidly improved to become one of the best teams in the NFL with Mike Vrabel as head coach. The Titans have made the playoffs 2 straight years with Vrabel and GM Jon Robinson in control. Mike Vrabel is a former All Pro linebacker who is known for his 3 Super Bowls with the New England Patriots.

    After he retired in 2010, Vrabel coached in college for Ohio State before joining former Patriots’ offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien in Houston. After a 3 year stint in Houston, Vrabel became the Titans head coach. In his first year Vrabel went 9-7 and failed to make the playoffs.

    However in his second year the Titans made it all the way to the AFC championship game, losing to the eventual Super Bowl champion Kansas CIty Chiefs in 2019. Now Vrabel looks to take the Titans to the next level in year 4 as head coach.

    GM Jon Robinson has given Vrabel a bunch of new pieces this offseason. In one of the busiest offseasons in the league, Robinson added pieces to improve both sides of the ball. Although the Titans lost Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith from their offense, they have added Julio Jones, the best receiver in the NFL.

    On defense, the Titans signed edge rusher Bud Dupree and Janoris Jenkins who both should make big impacts for the Titans defense. The Titans also drafted well, adding key depth pieces to support their core group of defensive and offensive starters. The Titans seem to have enough talent to take on the best in the league this year, the question is whether or not they can make the leap to compete against the incumbent Chiefs in the AFC.

    Offense

    The Titans offense was one of the best in the league led by the underrated Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry. You can’t talk about the Titans without first discussing their All Pro talent, Derrick Henry. Henry ran for 2027 yards last year and dominated opposing teams with his powerful running, elusive speed and stiff arms. He was one of the most exciting players to watch, and led the league for the second year in a row in rushing.

    The Titans passing attack was also good with Tannehill at the helm. Tannehill was efficient last season throwing just 7 interceptions and 33 touchdowns. Tannehill excelled in play action which is good considering the Titans have the best running back in the league.

    This Tannehill led air attack has only gotten better with Julio Jones being added into the mix. Jones will be paired with budding star AJ Brown who had a 1000 yard season last year. Although the Titans offensive line has been inconsistent in pass protection, they were great when run blocking and as long as defenses respect the run, Tannehill should have an easy time moving the ball.

    This offense has shown they can absolutely ground and pound teams into submission, and now with Julio Jones, they should be able to beat them in the air as well. Watch for this Titans attack to dominate the regular season and once again be top 5 offensively.

    Defense

    The Titans defense was a weak spot last season and were terrible in the red zone, allowing 27.4 points per game which was in the bottom 10 in the league. This season with the addition of Bud Dupree and Janoris Jenkins, the Titans hypothetically should improve. The Titans failed to generate pressure last year and ranked 30th in sacks.

    The Titans added Bud Dupree to address this issue, and although he will make a difference, the rest of the Titans front 7 is worrying. None of this front 7 is noteworthy outside of Dupree, and will likely struggle to generate pressure just like they did last year.

    The inability to generate pressure made life difficult for the Titans inconsistent secondary, which lost their best player Malcolm Butler. Janoris Jenkins should fill Butler’s role but the lack of quality talent behind Jenkins likely means the woes of the secondary will return in 2021. Things do not look good for the Titans defensively.

    Although the defense will have plenty of rest due to the Titans burning the clock by running Henry, they look like a bottom 10 unit once again. This is not a good sign as they will likely compete with a Chiefs and Bills offense that are both lethal through the air.

    Tennessee Titans Betting and Odds History

    The Tennessee Titans finished the 2020 season with the equal fourth best overall record in the league, 11-5. However, the Titans finished the season with the equal third worst record against the spread, 7-9. 

    When looking at total points, Tennessee were one of two teams in the NFL to cover their over on 12 occasions. Posting a 12-3-1 over-under-tie record in their 16 regular season games. 

    The Titans consistently covering their total points Over can be attributed to both their dynamic offense, consisting of Ryan Tannehill (quarterback), Derrick Henry (running back) and A.J Brown (wide receiver), as well as their lacklustre defense that allowed the fifth most total yards and ninth most points per game.

    The Tennessee Titans have opened with odds of +2800 to win Super Bowl LVI.
