The 1995 Houston Oilers season was the 36th season overall and 26th with the National Football League (NFL). The team bested their previous season’s output of 2–14, winning seven games,[1] but failed to qualify for the playoffs for the second consecutive season.

The Oilers were the debut opponent of expansion team the Jacksonville Jaguars, just as they had been with the previous NFL expansion and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1976.
