It was probably the biggest moment in Marcus Mariota's life.

The Tennessee Titans were on the clock after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers picked Jameis Winston No. 1 in the NFL Draft. Mariota's phone rings. It's the Titans. And then ... click?

According to NFL.com, the Titans, who reportedly were listening to offers for the No. 2 pick, accidently hung up on Mariota while they were telling him his life-long dream had come true.

Freudian slip? Who knows? Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt said that he expects Mariota to be the starter for Week 1.
