  • This will be the first AFC championship game appearance since the 2002 playoffs on Jan. 19, 2003, which they lost to the Oakland Raiders
  • If the Titans win the game, it will be the team's second Super Bowl appearance ever. The first was Super Bowl XXXIV where the team lost to the St. Louis Rams on Jan. 30, 2000.
