Titans QB Marcus Mariota keeps landing more marketing deals

Titans QB Marcus Mariota made the NFL look easy

Marcus Mariota of the Tennessee Titans looked like an All-Pro quarterback in his first career start. Mariota completed 13 of 16 pass attempts for 209 yards, the four scores and a perfect 158.3 passer rating, and with the Titans leading 42-7, was replaced by Zach Mettenberger to begin the fourth quarter.

The Titans led 21-0 after the first quarter, the first time they’d scored so much so quickly since a 31-17 victory against the Texans on Dec. 19, 2010. They led 35-7 at halftime, and hadn’t scored that much in an entire game since a 38-13 victory against the Jets on Sept. 29, 2013.

Mariota threw four touchdown passes, tying Fran Tarkenton for the most by a player in his NFL debut. After starting the game 0-of-2, Mariota completed 13 of his final 14 attempts and finished with more touchdowns (four) than incompletions (three).
