Marcus Mariota named AFC Offensive Player of the Week


NFL: Green Bay Packers at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

It was announced this morning that Marcus Mariota was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Green Bay Packers. He finished the day 19 of 26 for 295 yards and 4 touchdowns. He could have had even more yards and probably touchdowns if the game would have remained competitive.

There is no better way to celebrate his award by ordering your Mari”GOAT”a shirt here.

It is funny how the narrative around Mariota changed in a week. He went down to San Diego and put up good numbers (27-43 313 yards and 3 touchdowns) but everyone was panicking because of the turnovers. News flash: turnovers happen with young quarterbacks. Mariota just happens to be really unlucky with his turnovers getting run back for touchdowns by the defense.
