Welcome back to another edition of Classic Titans Games. This time we’re taking a look at one of the finest if not the finest moments in Titans history; The 1999 AFC Championship Game.nike replica nfl jerseys
The 1999 season marked the first by which the team was called the Tennessee Titans, as they were known as the Tennessee Oilers in the previous two seasons after the move to Nashville from Houston. The season was a massive success, as the team went 13-3, second in the then AFC Central behind the Jacksonville Jaguars.nfl jerseys replica
The Jaguars experienced a franchise best 14-2 record, marked by stars such as RB Fred Taylor, WR Jimmy Smith, and were led by QB Mark Brunell. Interestingly enough, their two losses in the regular season occurred to….the Titans!
The Titans beat the Bills in the Wild Card Round, and the ending of the game was okay I guess, replica nike nfl jerseys not that we’d know anything about it. A road win at Indianapolis advanced Tennessee to the Conference Title. Jacksonville, on the other hand, cruised to an amazing 62-7 victory over the Dolphins in the Divisional Round in what turned out to be the final game of Dan Marino’s career.
With both future AFC South rivals seeking their first Super Bowl, the fight was on. If the Titans won, they’d pull off a remarkable feat: Being the only team to beat the Jaguars the entire season and doing it a third time.wholesale nfl jerseys cheap
The Titans got the ball to start, but went three and out, and the Jaguars went on a scoring drive that put them up 7-0.
But the Titans responded immediately with a touchdown drive of their own.cheap nfl jerseys wholesale
After a Jaguars punt and McNair interception early in the second quarter, the Jaguars drove all the way to the Titans’ six-yard line, where safety Marcus Robertson came up with a huge end zone interception off of Brunell on a terrible off balance pass.nfl jerseys cheap wholesale
But the Titans did nothing off the turnover, giving the ball back to Jacksonville, who went up 14-7 thanks to a 33-yard touchdown run from RB James Stewart. nfl jersey cheap wholesale
The Titans at the very least responded with a field goal drive as time expired, as kicker Al Del Greco hit a 34-yard FG to cut the Jaguars lead to 14-10 at the half. This was aided by a bobbled punt from Jacksonville’s Reggie Barlow, as the ball was recovered by Steve Jackson to give Tennessee the ball right back.
The Tennessee defense forced a punt to start the second half, and the offense went on a scoring drive wholesale cheap nfl jerseys culminating in a QB sneak touchdown from McNair to put the team up 17-14. The two teams traded fumbles as Jacksonville’s defense forced a takeaway to put themselves inside their own 1-yard line.nfl jerseys wholesale cheap
What happened on the next two plays gave the Titans the insurance they badly needed.
