The Tennessee Titans players are defined by their iconic colors. The team first had an oil rig derrick as their official logo which marked the team's years as the Oilers. At this time, white or blue jerseys, white pants, and a red trim were the official colors. Except for a few instances where the team had an all-white outfit during the 70's and 80's, light blue pants and white jerseys comprised the official road colors. 1995 marked the end of the light blue pants for the team.
The helmets used for the 1960-65 and 1972-74 eras were blue in color. Silver helmets defined the rest of the 60's and 70's. As for the rest of the period until 1995, the helmets were white.
During the two years in the 90's when the team came to be known as the Tennessee Oilers, their logo incorporated the flag into the derrick and white uniforms were official for home matches. The colored jerseys were in fact only used twice. Once during Thanksgiving day and the other when they traveled to Miami Dolphins.
The colors would radically change when the name of the team changed to Titans. The new scheme comprised white helmets, navy or white jerseys, and red trims. The logo, on the other hand, became circular with three stars inside and a flaming 'T'. The jerseys featured a light blue color on the shoulders and sleeves. The navy jerseys were first used against Washington Redskins in 2006.
The uniforms that have prevailed at the Titans home games are the dark versions. The white uniforms have also been won at home on several occasions. An alternate uniform has existed since 2003. It is light blue with navy sleeves and shoulders. It has been won by the tame in occasions where they faced Houston Texans as well as during old AFL team matches. This choice is in part a reference to their history. A 2006 game with Philadelphia Eagles also saw them wear the alternate uniform. That same year, blue pants were also introduced for all all-blue look.
The 2006 season saw the Titans using all their combinations for different matches. In one game against the Atlanta Falcons, the all-blue uniform was used. The light blue pants and navy blue jersey combination was used against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It is only in one game against Indianapolis Colts that the Titans used a white pants-blue jerseys combination.
At one time in 2009 during their preseason Hall of Fame game against Buffalo Bills, the Titans wore the old Oilers uniform. The Titans emerged victorious from this game which was televised nationally. The uniform was worn to make the 50th anniversary of the Oilers. One of the former quarterbacks, Steve McNair was also honored by a slight change of uniform when the Titans donned a blue disc on their helmets.
The 2009-2012 era was marked by a consistent use of official team jerseys. Only 2013 saw a change when the team was celebrating 15 years of the Titans. 2014 saw a similar trend of white jerseys for all games save for two preseason games as well as an October match against Houston Texans.
2015 was defined the navy blue uniform. The light blue version became the alternate. 2018 will mark the beginning of new uniforms.
