These two storied franchises met for the first time in 1970, when the Colts were still a Baltimore team and the Titans were the Houston Oilers. Following division realignment in 2002, the Titans and the Colts have been playing at least twice a year. To date, the Colts and the Titans have met a total of 57 times, with the Colts winning 35 of those games. While the Colts maintained 11 straight wins from 2011 to 2016, the Titans won five games in a row from 2020 to 2022.
The majority of the Colts’ success in the rivalry is attributed to the historically prolific quarterback play from Hall of Famer and multiple-time MVP Peyton Manning, and No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck, who immediately succeeded him. The two quarterbacks had a combined record of 25-5 against the Titans, including Luck, who never lost in his 11 games.
It’s no coincidence that after Luck retired, and the Colts remained in flux at the position, that the Titans began to regain control of the series. Powered by their stifling defense and the powerful rushing attack of former Associated Press NFL Offensive Player of the Year Derrick Henry, the Titans have recaptured momentum in the series. Henry has tallied 1,287 yards and seven touchdowns in 14 games against Indianapolis.
The Tennessee Titans have called Nissan Stadium in downtown Nashville home since 1999, though as of 2022, the city and franchise are in talks to demolish the stadium to pave the way for a brand new, state-of-the-art facility. Nissan Stadium currently seats 69,143 people and had a price tag of $290 million when it was built. The stadium also serves as the home for the Tennessee State Tigers football team, Nashville SC, the NCAA Music City Bowl, and the annual CMA Music Festival.
Lucas Oil Stadium, informally recognized as “The Luke” and “The House that Peyton Built,” has been the home of the Indianapolis Colts since 2005. The three-tiered turf stadium is located in the heart of downtown Indianapolis and has a capacity of up to 70,000 people. Apart from hosting the Colts and notable NCAA March Madness games, Lucas Oil Stadium is also the permanent site of the annual NFL Scouting Combine.
