History Lesson (Week 1, 2013): Steelers 27, Oilers 13 (1979 AFC Championship Game)
Every week, we’ll take a look at one of the week’s matchups and reminisce about a previous meeting between the teams.
Once upon a time, the Tennessee Titans were originally the Houston Oilers, one of the eight original franchises in the American Football League. The franchise called Houston home for 37 seasons before moving to Tennessee in 1997, hence the Tennessee Oilers in 1997-98 before settling on the Tennessee Titans in ’99. Obviously, that resolution of their identity crisis was good for the team that season as it made its lone Super Bowl appearance.
