Heisman Trophy winner Billy Cannon from Louisiana State was the first big-name signing of both the Oilers and the AFL. The Oilers were the AFL’s first champions, winning back-to-back titles in 1960 and 1961.
The Oilers missed a third straight championship in 1962 when they lost 20-17 to the Dallas Texans. At the time, the historic six-quarter contest was the longest professional football game ever played — 77 minutes, 54 seconds.
The Oilers/Titans have qualified for post-season action a total of 18 times in the club’s history with AFL playoff appearances coming in 1960, 1961, 1962, 1967 and 1969.
