2004 Tennessee Titans season

The 2004 Tennessee Titans season was the franchise's 35th season in the National Football League, the 45th overall and the 8th in the state of Tennessee. The team attempted to improve upon their previous output of 12–4, but they failed to improve on their 2003 12–4 record, and only won five games, making the record a 5-11 for that year,[1] and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2001.

The season is notable when the team lost three starters from the famed 1999 team; lineman Jevon Kearse went to the Philadelphia Eagles, running back Eddie George was released before the season, and he would later sign with the Dallas Cowboys and tight end Frank Wycheck retired after the 2003 season.
