Marcus Mariota looks to keep an impressive road streak going Thursday
Tennessee Titans rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota enters Thursday night's game in Jacksonville looking to get his team its third win of the season while continuing his stellar play on the road.
In three games away from Nissan Stadium this season, Mariota has thrown 10 touchdowns without an interception and led the Titans to a pair of victories. In those wins, the Heisman Trophy winner had two four-touchdown games.
For his part, Mariota said he's not sure what accounts for his success on the road, since his approach remains the same regardless of location.
"I just play my game, play myself,’’ Mariota said, per the team's official website. “I don’t treat it any different than any other game. It is fun playing in a hostile environment. Any competitive athlete would tell you there’s a satisfaction when you are able to compete to the best of your ability on the road. But for me I don’t treat any game any differently, I kind of have the same mentality throughout.”
The Titans certainly hope the trend continues, and not only against the Jaguars. Tennessee has a trio of challenging road games coming up against the Jets, Patriots and Colts.
