TENNESSEE TITANS The Titans were originally the Houston Oilers and the Buccaneers’ opponents in their first game in franchise history. After the 1996 season, the Oilers moved to Tennessee where they were known as the Tennessee Oilers for two seasons and then became the Tennessee Titans in 1999. The teams have also met 12 times in pre-season play with the Bucs currently holding a 7-5 series lead, six of those games being against the Houston Oilers.
