About The Tennessee Titans
The Tennessee Titans are a professional American football team based in Nashville, Tennessee. At present, they are members of the Southern Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). Formerly, the team used to play in Houston, Texas, as the Houston Oilers. The Oilers began play in 1960 as a charter member of the American Football League and won two AFL championships before joining the NFL as part of the AFL-NFL Merger.
The team relocated to Tennessee in 1997, first playing in Memphis for one season before moving to Nashville. For a couple of seasons, they were called the "Tennessee Oilers" before changing their name to Titans in 1999. The team derives its name from Greek mythology where Titans exemplified power, strength, knowledge, and excellence. The Titans now play in Adelphia Coliseum in Nashville, and wear jerseys of blue, red, and white.
The Houston Oilers were a strong team in the now-defunct American Football League (AFL), winning two league titles and reaching the playoffs five times before the AFL and NFL merged in 1970. From 1978 to 1980, they made three back-to-back play appearances thanks to the great efforts from running back Earl Campbell. The Oilers performed consistently during the late 1980s and early 1990s, making seven consecutive postseason appearances from 1987 to 1993.
Immediately after becoming charter members of the AFL in 1960, the Oilers won the AFL’s first championship. They won again a year later under head coach Wally Lemm. Lemm’s team featured a powerful offense with George Blanda, Billy Cannon, Bill Groman and Charley Hennigan. The Oilers’ domination was so great that half of the team’s starting lineup were selected for the AFL All-Star Games following the 1961 and 1962 seasons.
Lemm resigned after the championship but came back five years later to guide the club to the postseason in 1967 and 1969. The Oilers joined the NFL in 1970 as part of the NFL-AFL merger. After four losing seasons, they tasted their first NFL winning record in 1975.
In 1978 Houston drafted Earl Campbell, who won four consecutive rushing titles from 1978 to 1981 and two straight most valuable player (MVP) awards in 1978 and 1979. Campbell led the Oilers to consecutive appearances in the AFC Championship Game in 1978 and 1979, but they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers on both occasions. The Oilers witnessed a slump from 1981 through 1986, but began to recover by drafting Warren Moon from the Canadian League in 1984.
In 1997 the Oilers moved to Tennessee and played in the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis. After the 1998 season the team moved to Nashville and was renamed the Titans. In 1999 the Titans finished with a 13-3 record, and in the postseason they reached the Super Bowl, losing to the St. Louis Rams 23-16.
