Mariota Named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week

Tennessee Titans v New Orleans Saints

The Titans young rookie quarterback got another honor today, as QB Marcus Mariota has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.

All he did was return from injury and lead the Titans to a rather stunning 34-28 overtime win over the New Orleans Saints. The NFL made the announcement on Wednesday morning.

Mariota completed 28-of-39 passes for 371 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions, with a passer rating of 135.7 against the Saints in the win.

He dominated late in the game when it counted the most, going 15 passes on 17 attempts for 160 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions and a passer rating of 145.1 in the fourth quarter and overtime.

Mariota also won the award following a Week 1 performance against the Buccaneers.
