The 2014 Tennessee Titans season was the franchise's 45th season in the National Football League, the 55th overall and the 18th in the state of Tennessee. It marked the first under head coach Ken Whisenhunt, as well as the first full season following the death of longtime owner Bud Adams, who died during the 2013 season. The Titans finished the season with a 2-14 record, not only tying the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the league's worst record, but the Titans also suffered their worst season since 1994, when the franchise was known as the Houston Oilers.
