In the team’s past two wins over the Dallas Cowboys and the New England Patriots, Mariota has completed 37-of-53 pass attempts for 468 yards. He’s also been careful and accurate, not tossing a single interception in those eight quarters of football, while securing a 122.2 passer rating.

Mariota and the Titans will need to keep the momentum moving in their favor as they face the division rival Indianapolis Colts on Sunday]]>

<![CDATA[Titans QB Marcus Mariota has made NFL history over first 50 games]]> Marcus Mariota has proved he can lead the franchise, looking more and more established by the week.

But Mariota hasn’t just brought a spark to the Titans offense under center. He’s also cemented his place in NFL history, having made a large impact both in the air and by making his own plays on the ground.

Mariota is now one of just 11 players in the history of the league to throw for at least 60 touchdowns and rush for 10 scores in his first 50 games. The signal-caller totals 65 passing touchdowns and 11 rushing touchdowns as he heads into Week 11]]>

<![CDATA[Colts coach Frank Reich "thinks the world" of Marcus Mariota]]> Marcus Mariota seems to be in just about everyone’s good graces lately.

And that doesn’t come without reason.

Mariota has served as the glue that’s held a struggling Titans offense together all season – which seems to finally have found some rhythm. In less than a week’s time, Mariota has guided his team to a 34-10 win over a formidable New England Patriots team, and has secured a nomination for the 2018 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award.

One of the many people to pay recognition to the Titans signal-caller is none other than Indianapolis Colts head coach, Frank Reich]]>

<![CDATA[Titans QB Marcus Mariota receives nomination for 2018 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award]]> Marcus Mariota was named the Titans’ nominee for the Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award.

Every team in the league selected one of its players to be considered for the honor, which is given to players who show outstanding sportsmanship – win or lose – on the football field. It was orginially created in 2014 after the late founder of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pro Football Hall of Famer Art Rooney, Sr.

Of the 32 nominees, eight finalists (four from the AFC and four from the NFC) will be selected by a panel represented by Warrick Dunn, Curtis Martin, Karl Mecklenburg and Leonard Wheeler. Those eight players will be placed on the Pro Bowl ballot for current NFL players to vote on who should be chosen to receive the award]]>

<![CDATA[AFC playoff picture: how Titans' win over Patriots impacts standings]]>
The Titans looked about as formidable as they ever have on both sides of the ball Sunday. The team has been looking to establish an overall sense of consistency, while struggling to get someone to truly step up on offense in the place of sidelined tight end, Delanie Walker.

Now on a two-game win streak – with the receiving corps steadily improving and Marcus Mariota giving nearly every member of the offense an opportunity to make a play – the Titans look like they have finally found their rhythm]]>

<![CDATA[Titans are underdogs vs. Colts, despite victory over Patriots]]>
But this isn’t the case for the Tennessee Titans, who breezed past the Patriots in last week’s 34-10 win.

The Titans were underdogs in that game by a large margin – but dominated New England on both fronts for all four quarters – much to the surprise of most analysts.

Quarterback Marcus Mariota was one player that particularly shined, stepping up and making the throws under pressure against a ball-hawking Patriots defense. He was 16-of-24 passes for 228 yards and two touchdowns on a win in which the Titans looked established on both the ground and in the air]]>

We’ve established that Mariota is most effective when he gets the ball out quickly; he’s completed 11-of-13 passes when he releases it in 2.5 seconds or less.

But he’s also proved reliable in clutch situations — particularly on those involving third down. In an ESPN release earlier in the week, Mariota was listed as the fourth-most effective quarterback when placed in a third-down situation, with a 41.4 percent success rate]]>

<![CDATA[Titans-Patriots: Tom Brady vs. Marcus Mariota]]>
While veteran Tom Brady and up-and-coming Marcus Mariota have both been key on offense this year, they’ve done so in two entirely different ways.

Here’s how the two stack up heading into Sunday.

<![CDATA[3 Stars: DeMarcus Lawrence stands out among defenders in loss to Titans]]>
The Cowboys looked out of sync and out of sorts most of the night except for a few drives in the first half. With that said here are the three stars from last night’s game

Lawrence continues to flash and make plays and command attention for others to make plays. A beautiful strip sack of Marcus Mariota in the first quarter helped result in the Cowboys first touchdown of the night.  He continued his play setting the edge in the run game and providing another quarterback hurry later on. The Cowboys will have to bring the money to his front door if they want to retain him this offseason]]>
