The Tennesee Titans have had an up and down season filled with big wins and even bigger injuries. However, they managed to not only finish in first place in the AFC South with a 12-5 record, but also earn the No. 1 seed. Because of this, they earned a first-round bye and will be facing off against the Cincinnati Bengals in the Divisional Round. Before we get too deep into 2021-22, let’s rewind the clock to the 1999-2000 season when the Titans last made it to the show. 

When Was the Titans’ Last Super Bowl Win?

As is the case with their opponents this weekend, the Titans have never won a Super Bowl game in their 62 years of existence. They were known as the Houston Oilers up until 1996 when they chanced to the Tennessee Oilers, then eventually the Titans. The franchise had zero Super Bowl appearances in the 36 years in Texas. 

Then came the 1999-00 NFL season when the Titans went 13-3 and won the Wild Card game against the Bills in the opening round. The game ended on what has been named the “music city miracle,” which saw a kickoff returned or a TD. The play was very controversial as it clearly featured a forward pass by tight end Frank Wycheck to Kevin Dyson. Dyson went 75 yards for the game-winning TD.

Then, came Super Bowl XXXIV and the football gods decided that the Titans couldn’t win after the Music City Miracle. With no time left on the clock, Dyson once again had the ball en route to the end zone when linebacker Mike Jones caught him at the 1-yard line to deny another game-winning TD. 

Tennesee Titans' Odds to Win Super Bowl 56

Cut to 2022 and the Titans are not only back in the playoffs, but they even enjoyed a Wild Card round bye. Now, with the Bengals on the horizon, their odds to win it all are at +700 at WynnBET Sportsbook. This could be a very profitable spot to grab Tennessee before it is confirmed that Derrick Henry is healthy and ready to return. I expect the odds to shorten once that news breaks. The Titans started the season 28/1 to win it all and saw their regular season odds peak at +1100 in Week 10 and again in Week 13.
