The team called themselves the Oilers until 1999; then they made the switch to the Titans. The team sells Titans tickets for LP Field which is located on the east bank of the Cumberland River.
Since joining the NFL (and as of 2013) the Titans have reached the playoffs at least twice in every decade. In 1999, the Titans made a memorable run to the Super Bowl. In the first round of the playoffs the Titans defeated the Buffalo Bills thanks to one of the NFL's most memorable moments, "The Music City Miracle." The Titans were trailing the Bills by one point with 16 second left in the game. The Titans' scored a go-ahead touchdown on a kickoff return that involved a controversial backwards pass.
The Titans then went on to defeat the Indianapolis Colts and the Jacksonville Jaguars to reach Super Bowl XXIV. In one of the most exciting Super Bowls in NFL history, Tennessee lost to the St. Louis Rams when Titans receiver Kevin Dyson was tackled on the one-yard line on the last play of the game. The play, known as "The Tackle," allowed the Rams to hold on to a 23-16 victory.
The most coveted Tennessee Titans tickets are for the team's divisional games. The Titans are aligned in the AFC South with their rivals the Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, and Jacksonville Jaguars. The Titans also have rivalries with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens. The Steelers and the Ravens used to be members of the AFC Central with the Titans (Oilers) until 2001.
Former Oilers that are now in the Pro Football Hall of Fame include Earl Campbell, Bruce Matthews, and Warren Moon. Some prominent Titans that have suited up for the team over the years include Steve McNair, Chris Johnson, Eddie George, and Derrick Mason. Jeff Fisher took over as the Titans head coach in 1994. As of 2013, Fisher has the longest tenure as head coach with one team among active NFL coaches.
