Titans-Vikings series by the numbers

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans will play the entire NFC North division this year. That kicks off in week 1 when the Minnesota Vikings come to town. As you might imagine, the series history between these two teams isn't very deep. The two franchises have only met 12 times with the Vikings winning 8 of those match-ups.

The Titans lost the most recent match-up back in 2012 by a score of 30-7. The Vikings were quarterbacked by Christian Ponder that day. He threw for 258 yards and 2 touchdowns. The star of the game was Percy Harvin. He had 8 catches for 108 yards with a touchdown and 2 carries for 8 yards and a touchdown.

The Titans offense was led that day by Matthew Hasselbeck. He threw for 200 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Chris Johnson ran the ball 15 times for 24 yards. He almost, ALMOST averaged 2 yards per carry.
