Texans–Titans rivalry - Wikipedia

The Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans are set to clash in Week 15 at Nissan Stadium, marking the first of two matchups between these divisional rivals.

Adding an extra layer of excitement, the Titans will be donning their Oilers throwback uniforms, a move certain to rile up Houston sports fans even more than usual.

The Titans come into this game with momentum following their Week 14 victory over the Miami Dolphins, an upset that stands as one of the season’s biggest in the NFL, complete with an improbable comeback that etched its place in league history.

Seeking to secure consecutive wins for the first time this year, Tennessee aims to achieve this feat for the first time since Weeks 10 and 11 of the previous season.

On the flip side, the Texans suffered their worst defeat of the season, a 30-6 loss to the New York Jets, further compounded by the potential absence of key players heading into this upcoming game.

Foremost among these absences could be Offensive Rookie of the Year favorite, C.J. Stroud, setting back the anticipated showdown between two emerging quarterbacks, including Will Levis.

Now, here are six essential aspects to note for this anticipated matchup:

Texans fans, and Houston sports enthusiasts in general, aren’t pleased that the Titans can sport Oilers throwbacks. The news of the Titans wearing these throwbacks against the Texans in Week 15 is likely to exacerbate their discontent.

In addition to donning the Oilers’ jerseys, the Titans plan to honor franchise legend Billy “White Shoes” Johnson by inducting him into the franchise’s Ring of Honor.

This game marks the Titans’ second appearance in throwback uniforms this season, the initial occasion being a Week 8 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
