Tennessee Titans vs. New York Giants Game History – Clarksville Online

Nashville, TN – This week’s game marks the 13th meeting between the Tennessee Titans and the New York Giants. The series is tied 6-6, dating back to Sept. 16, 1973, when the Giants beat the Houston Oilers 34-14 in the season opener at Yankee Stadium.

Of all the opponents that have existed since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, the Giants, Arizona Cardinals, Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Commanders have faced the Oilers/Titans the fewest times – 12 games each.

After the Giants won the first five matchups between the franchises, the Titans/Oilers won the next five meetings. The streak included a 10-6 Oilers win in 1997, a 28-14 win in 2000, a 32-29 overtime win in 2002, a 24-21 win in 2006 and a 29-10 decision in 2010. .




The Giants picked up the series momentum in 2014 with a 36-7 win at Nissan Stadium. The Giants scored the first 30 points of the game as Eli Manning passed for 260 yards and rookie Odell Beckham Jr. recorded 130 receiving yards. The Titans and Giants have met twice at MetLife Stadium, most recently on Dec. 16, 2018. The Titans won 17-0 to record the franchise’s first shutout since 2000 and only the fourth road shutout in team records.

Derrick Henry rushed for 170 yards and two touchdowns, while the Titans defense recorded two turnovers and three sacks.

Despite meeting infrequently, the Titans had two of their most dramatic finishes since moving to Tennessee against the Giants. On a cold, windy day at the Meadowlands on December 1, 2002, Steve McNair helped force overtime with a touchdown pass and two-point conversion in the dying seconds of regulation, and Joe Nedney sealed the victory when he is connected on a 38-yard field goal. Eddie George rushed for 64 yards to pass Earl Campbell as the all-time leader in franchise history.

In 2006, rookie quarterback Vince Young led arguably one of the greatest comebacks in NFL history against the Giants. Trailing 21-0 with less than 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter, the Titans rallied to score touchdowns on three straight drives and then won the game on a 49-yard field goal from kicker Rob Bironas. He’s tied for the second-greatest comeback in NFL history with 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter and was the greatest comeback in NFL history (fourth quarter or otherwise) led by a quarterback- rear rookie.
