VIDEO: Marcus Mariota Beats Saints With Overtime Touchdown

On Sunday, the Tennessee Titans topped the New Orleans Saints in overtime, which is an incredible feat considering they never had the lead in regulation.

With seven minutes left in the fourth quarter, rookie QB Marcus Mariota found Justin Hunter for a short 8-yard touchdown and an eventual two-point conversion to tie the game 28-28.

Then, with ten minutes left in OT, Mariota did this.

It capped a very strong day for Mariota, who was 28 of 39 with 372 yards and four touchdowns and no interceptions.

This week, it was Saints QB Drew Brees who felt the pain of defeat despite a solid performance. Brees was on the winning end of a 52-49 shootout against the New York Giants, handing Eli Manning a loss despite Manning’s six touchdowns.

Brees didn’t have his seven touchdowns from that game, but he did throw for 385 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.

The Titans are now 2-6, and new interim head coach Mike Mularkey is 1-0.
