    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. 

    Expert 2020 / 2021 Picks & Preview on Tennessee Titans

    If you are a fan of the Tennessee Titans, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Tennessee Titans have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Tennessee Titans:

    Preview on Tennessee Titans Head Coach: Mike Vrabel

    14-year veteran and three-time Super Bowl champion linebacker, Mike Vrabel has gotten his career as head coach off to a great start. Since signing with the Tennessee Titans in 2018, Vrabel has recorded back to back 9-7 season’s and led a successful playoff campaign in 2019.

    Last season’s playoff run saw the Titans defeat the number one defensive ranked Patriots and the number one offensive ranked Ravens in successive weeks, before being eliminated by the eventual Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, 35-24 in the AFC Championship Game.

    In a productive offseason, Vrabel and the Titans extended quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s contract and have since re-signed star running back Derrick Henry. With Tennessee playing four of the first six games at home, the start of the 2020 season is the perfect opportunity for Vrabel to solidify himself as one of the best young coaches in the league, and to prove that the Titans as a serious contender coming out of the AFC.

    Preview on Tennessee Titans Offensive Weapon: Derrick Henry

    Fresh off signing a four year $50 million contract, Derrick Henry is entering 2020 as the fifth highest paid running back in the NFL.

    Henry came into the NFL regarded as one of the most prodigious high school and collegiate athletes in recent times. Despite winning the Heisman trophy, Henry’s uniquely large frame for a running back saw him slip to the 45th pick in the 2016 NFL draft. After only managing four starts in his first two seasons, Henry found his feet in the 2018 season before a breakout year in 2019.

    Henry finished the 2019 regular season setting career-highs in carries (303), rushing yards (1,540), and rushing touchdowns (16), leading the league in all three categories despite only playing in 15 games. As the driving force behind the Titans epic playoff run, Henry proved himself as a big game player averaging just shy of 150 yards from Tennessee’s three playoff games.

    As good as Henry is, the Titans will have to reduce their dependence on him coming into 2020, so that Henry can maintain his health and continue to be a dominant force in the Titans offense.

    Preview on Tennessee Titans Defensive Weapon: Kevin Byard

    Prior to commencing his fifth year in the league, Kevin Byard signed a five-year extension with the Titans worth $70.5 million, making him the highest-paid safety in NFL history.

    The catalyst for Byard’s big pay was his 2017 season, which saw him accumulate 87 combined tackles (62 solo), 16 pass deflections, and eight interceptions from his 16 games as a starter. His eight interceptions led the league earning him Pro Bowl and First-team All-Pro nominations. After captaining the defensive unit in 2019, the Titans see Byard as a great leader as well as an elite prospective talent.

    Five years into his career, and one season into his record-breaking deal, Byard is the only player in the NFL with four or more interceptions in each of the last three seasons. However, with still only one All Pro level season to his name, Byard will be looking to increase his output and solidify himself as one of the top safeties in the league as Titans prepare to make another postseason run in 2020.

    Tennessee Titans Betting and Odds History

    Despite their deep playoff run in 2019, the Tennessee Titans did not open as a top 10 contender to take out Super Bowl LV. The Titans opened with odds of +2500 to claim their first Super Bowl, drifting to +2800 for the kickoff of the 2020 season. 

    Tennessee had a productive offseason, re-signing quarterback Ryan Tannehill and running back Derrick Henry to long term deals. However, the Titans failed to add more starpower to their roster throughout the trade period and free agency, which has resulted in a lack of development for the Titans Super Bowl chances. 

    Despite competing in the most recent AFC conference championship, the Titans opened as the fifth favourite in their conference to take out Super Bowl LV. As the season prepared to kickoff, Tennessee (+2700)  has slipped to the sixth most favoured Super Bowl contender out of the AFC. Trailing the Patriots (+2333), the Bills (+2233) the Ravens (+617) and the Chiefs (+543).

    Having not won the division since 2008, Tennessee (+200) opened as the second most favoured team to take out the AFC South, narrowly behind the Houston Texans (+150) and just in front of the Indianapolis Colts (+250). Following the Texans trading away wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, both the Titans and Colts shortened into near equal favouritism, with the Colts considered the more likely to win the division. Given Tennessee’s most recent playoff success, the Titans present great value at +165 to take out the AFC South in 2020.
