Tennessee Titans 2021: News, Schedule, Roster, Score, Injury Report

The Tennessee Titans were formally the Houston Oilers, and they began to play in Houston, Texas, in 1960 through founder Bud Adams. The Oilers enjoyed early success and won multiple titles before the famed AFC-NFL merger of 1970. The franchise underwent a relocation from Houston to Tennessee in 1997, and they officially changed their name to the Tennessee Titans for the 1999 season.

The Titans made 1 successful chip campaign for Super Bowl XXXIV where they fell to the St. Louis Rams 23-16. Moreover, they continued to gain compound success by making the Playoffs in all but one season from 1999 to 2003. However, the club has struggled since then, making the Playoffs only twice in the next 13 seasons.

Over the last 4 seasons, beginning in 2016, the Tennessee Titans have seemingly found their footing once again. They managed to put together 4 consecutive winning seasons and made the Playoffs twice in that time period. Not to mention, their 4 straight winning seasons are the most since they were under the mantle of the Houston Oilers from their early days.

The Titans started the 2020 season going 5-0 for the first time since 2008. Additionally, they rounded off the 2020 campaign with an 11-5 record and placed first in the AFC South. Chiefly, the Tennessee-based franchise lost the Wild Card Playoffs against the Baltimore Ravens 13-20.

The logo color palette includes colors such as navy, titans blue, red, metallic silver, and white. The Tennessee Titans logo includes a white ring that symbolizes the sun with three stars inside placed against a dark blue background. Moreover, the large ‘T’ placed in the center is reflective of a sword. Additionally, there is a fiery blaze encompassing the logo that brings out the aesthetic of a comet.

Fans have debated the actual symbolism behind the Titans' logo, and many pundits believe that the ring represents a shield for a defensive mindset. However, what’s not up for debate is the fact that the stars and colors are reflective of the Tennessee state flag.
