The Tennessee Titans are once again one of the top teams in the AFC and perhaps the entire NFL with the 2020 campaign now officially looming. With the once lowly franchise only recently restoring its toughness, talent and passion after years of less than stellar play, the Titans continue to create memorable moments for the team’s patient, yet eager fan base.

However, with the Titans serving as one the NFL’s best teams for the first handful of seasons to start the 21st century, Tennessee has managed to create a slew of positive memories over the years despite hitting quite the skid during the better part of the 2000’s and 2010’s. Once again putting together well-rounded rosters in addition to winning playoff games, some of the best moments in franchise history have come in the last few years as well with the early portion of the millennium also serving as quite the high point for the organization.

Even with the Titans never winning a Super Bowl title, Tennessee still only holds claim to some of the best moments in NFL history.

3. Improbable Comeback & Road Playoff Win Over The Kansas City Chiefs (2017 )

In 2017, the Tennessee Titans snuck into the postseason as the AFC’s sixth and final seed, which paired the franchise up against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Titans reaching the playoffs for the first time in almost a decade initially seemed like an accomplishment in itself. As Tennessee trailed Kansas City 21-3 at halftime, a massive second half from the road underdogs led to an improbable comeback victory. With quarterback Marcus Mariota somehow throwing a touchdown to himself, running back Derrick Henry carrying defenders downfield and wide receiver Eric Decker finding the end zone to put the Titans up late, Tennessee pulled off the impossible by capturing an unlikely 22-21 win.

Unfortunately for the surging Titans, that win would be the only victory for Tennessee that postseason as the heralded New England Patriots eliminated them from Super Bowl contention in the divisional round the following week. However, because this game unfolded as it did with a national audience paying attention to each and every play, it is hard to argue with the fact that this is one of the top moments for this franchise.

2. The “Music City” Miracle (1999)

Although the team’s last Super Bowl appearance and AFC Championship sit at the top of he greatest moments in franchise history, the Tennessee Titans’ heralded matchup against the St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXIV would have never happened without the infamous “Music City Miracle.”

Prior to the Titans defeating both the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars en route to a bout against the aforementioned Rams, Tennessee was very nearly ousted from Super Bowl contention in the opening round of the playoffs as the Buffalo Bills  made their way to Nashville — and then some.

With the Titans — who were forced to play three playoff games due to the Jaguars’ regular season success against everyone but Tennessee — the current AFC South franchise just barely got by Buffalo as the Bills became the victims of the “Music City Miracle.” As the Titans trailed the Bills late in the game with Buffalo taking a 16-15 lead with less than 20 seconds left to play in regulation, a trick play from Tennessee on the ensuing kickoff gave them an unthinkable 22-16 win at home. With fullback Lorenzo Neal, tight end Frank Wycheck and wide receiver Kevin Dyson combining for a 75-yard kickoff return touchdown, the “Music City Miracle” is no doubt one of the most memorable moments in both franchise and NFL history even 20 years later.

1. Reaching Super Bowl XXXIV (1999)

Although the Tennessee Titans ultimately went on to lose Super Bowl XXXIV by one yard, the fact that the franchise managed to capture an AFC Championship in its first true year of existence remains the greatest moment in team history.

With the Titans sporting the two-tone blue for the first time as a result of the 1999campaign, it did not take long for quarterback Steve McNair, running back Eddie George and company to make a deep playoff run en route to an AFC Championship — the only one in the organization’s history. Because the Titans have never won a Super Bowl title, winning the AFC Championship and nearly winning it all must top this list.

Due to the talent of the roster, the road to get to Super Bowl XXXIV and the fact that this title game against the Rams was one of the best in history, the Titans and the team’s dedicated fan base should be very proud of this accomplishment.
