St. Louis Rams vs. Tennessee Titans Series at a Glance

Rams_medium

The Rams lead the all-time series between these two teams 7-3.  The last meeting was back in 2005 with the Rams winning 31-27.  The last time the Rams came to Nashville was in 1999 in the game that I referenced in this post.  There was obviously a famous game between these two teams that none of us really want to talk about.

For the second time in two weeks the game will be on FOX because an NFC team is visiting Nashville.  The broadcast will be handled by Chris Rose and Trent Green.  Green is a pretty famous Ram considering it was his preseason injury that paved the way for Kurt Warner to be the starting quarterback in 1999.
