The Tennessee State Museum marks 20 years of the Titans in Tennessee with Touchdown Titans! The NFL in Tennessee, a special display April 23-May 5 in the Grand Hall of the Museum. Scheduled to coincide with the NFL Draft in Nashville from April 25-27, the display in the Grand Hall includes artifacts related to the team’s arrival as the Tennessee Oilers in 1997, its historic 1999 “Music City Miracle” season, and its continuing growth.
Highlights include a mahogany football used at the unveiling of the new Titans logo in 1998 and later presented to the Museum by former governor Don Sundquist; a Titans game-worn helmet from 2000 signed by Titans superstars Eddie George, Steve McNair, Jevon Kearse, and head coach Jeff Fisher; and a program and ticket from the January 8, 2000 game when the Titans faced the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. It was in this game, with 16 seconds left, that the Titans called “Home Run Throwback,” a play that has since been termed the “Music City Miracle.”
On Display from Tuesday, April 23 – Sunday, May 5, 2019.
