LP Field History
Home of the NFL's Tennessee Titans, LP Field is one of the most picturesque stadiums
in the league. Before they were the Tennessee Titans, they were the Houston Oilers, playing in one of the league's worst venues,
the Astrodome. When the voters in Houston refused to spend taxpayer money on renovating the domed stadium, the franchise looked
for a city that would build them a new stadium, selecting Nashville, Tennessee. They became the Tennessee Titans in 1997,
playing their home games at Vanderbilt Stadium and Liberty Stadium while LP Field was being built. When LP Field opened in
1999, it was known as Adelphia Coliseum, until it was changed to its current name in 2002. The Titans won their first 16 home
games at LP Stadium, and boast an impressive home record since the doors opened in 1999. Football fans should definitely put
this amazing open air stadium on the bucket list, where the home fans rock the building every Sunday, helping create an incredible
game day atmosphere that the NFL is known for. Not only can you see some of the best football action, but LP Field offers
fans incredible views of downtown Nashville and nearby Cumberland River.

LP Field Trivia
In it's short history, LP Field has hosted what incredible
play that is considered one of the best in NFL history?
"The Music City Miracle" of January 8, 2000 is one of the most
famous plays in NFL history and took place at LP Field (then named Adelphia Coliseum) in a game between the Titans and the
Buffalo Bills. With 16 seconds remaining in the game and down by 1 point, Titans tight end Frank Wycheck threw a lateral pass
to Kevin Dyson on a kick off return, with Dyson running 75 yards for the improbable game winning touchdown as time expired.
