History

The Tennessee Titans are members of the American Football Conference of the NFL. The team was founded by owner Bud Adams in 1959 as an original member of the American Football League. The franchise was located in Houston Texas from 1960 until 1996, and played under the name Houston Oilers. The Oilers began play in the AFL in 1960 and won each of the first two AFL Championships in 1960, and again in 1961. These remain the team’s only league titles to date.

In 1968, the Oilers moved from Jeppesen Field into the Astrodome, becoming the first professional football team to play their home games in a domed stadium. The Oilers became a charter member of the NFL when the AFL and NFL merged into one league for the start of the 1970 season.  

For the next several decades, the team would see little consistent success, finishing many seasons with a losing record. In the 1993 playoffs the Oilers faced the Buffalo Bills in a wild card game and jumped out to a 32 point lead. The Bills eventually came back to win the game by a score of 41 to 38 for the biggest comeback in NFL history. The Bills would go onto win their next two games and appear in their record fourth straight Super Bowl.

After the 1996 campaign, Bud Adams moved the franchise to Nashville, Tennessee. However, Vanderbilt Stadium, which was located in Nashville, was too small for Adam’s liking. The club played one season in Memphis at the Liberty Bowl, which had a larger capacity. Unfortunately, fans from Nashville were not so willing to drive to Memphis, which is some 200 miles away, and the citizens of Memphis did not want to support a team from a rival city. Crowds were very small at the Liberty Bowl and Adams decided he would have the team play at Vanderbilt Stadium for the 1998 season.

In 1999, Adelphia Stadium opened as the new home for the football franchise. Adams also changed the name of the team from the Tennessee Oilers to the Tennessee Titans. This was done largely at the request of fans, who wanted a name more representative of the region.

During the 1999 campaign, the Titans had their best season to date, finishing the regular season with a 13 to 3 record. During the playoffs, they were led by star quarterback Steve McNair and running back Eddie George and made their first appearance in the Super Bowl. During the contest, the Titans drove down the field attempting to win the game in which they were trailing. Receiver Kevin Dyson made a reception and was tackled at the one yard line as time expired. The play became known as “the tackle”, and the Rams held on for their first Super Bowl victory. It remains the only Super Bowl appearance for the Titans to date.
