The 1999 Tennessee Titans season, to this day, is still the best in franchise history. After spending more than 30 years being known as the Oilers, the titans name was created in 1999.
With the name change, came the magical season of the 1999 Tennessee Titans.
After going 13-3 in the regular season, the Titans advanced to Super Bowl XXXIV after victories over the Buffalo Bills, with the Music City Miracle, then defeating the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round.
