The Tennessee Titans, anchored in Nashville, entered the league in 1960. At the time the team was located in Houston. The Oilers, as they were known, won consecutive AFL championships in 1960 and 1961. They won the AFL Eastern Division title in 1967. The Oilers were the first professional football team to play in a domed stadium. When the AFL and NFL merged, the Oilers were moved to the AFC Central division. The Oilers struggled for the better part of two decades, but won a division title in 1991. The team moved to Tennessee in 1997.
The team was known as the Houston Oilers and Tennessee Oilers before adopting the Titans moniker in 1999. The Titans retained the Oilers team records to make their history cohesive. The Titans became regular playoff contenders and made a run at Super Bowl XXXIV, coming up one yard short from tying the St. Louis Rams on the last play of the game. Current members of the AFC South, the team has enjoyed many league and division championship titles prior to the 1970 merger between the NFL and the AFL.
