Marcus Mariota Benched in Shutout Loss to Broncos


The Marcus Mariota questions may have been answered and not in a positive way when the Tennessee Titans benched their starting quarterback late in the third quarter of Sunday’s 16-0 loss at Denver.

Mariota was replaced by Ryan Tannehill after completing just 7 of 18 passes for 63 yards and his first two interceptions of the season.

Tannehill went 13 for 16 for 144 yards but had a fourth down pass to the end zone picked off in the Titans only red zone trip.

Tennessee’s defense again played well enough to keep the team in the game, but the offense’s word did the Titans in once again. Tennessee is 2-4 with no seeming answers in sight.
