Marcus Mariota completes touchdown pass to himself


Marcus Mariota was strip-sacked by Derrick Johnson and the ball was recovered by Justin Houston.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it was the first time a quarterback has thrown a touchdown to himself in the playoffs and only the second time it has been done in the history of the NFL.

Mike Mularkey and company have been criticized for the conservative nature of the play-calling, especially through the prism of Mariota's mobility and explosiveness. Included among them were a few National Football League players who were in disbelief. That's what you've got to do. The strip and the sack all happened in the same motion, and it should have been Chiefs ball. "He didn't find nobody else, so he took off running, and that's basically what he did". To make matters sweeter, it was Mariota's first career playoff touchdown.

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota scored one of the most improbable touchdowns you will ever see.

"You can go into practice with the plays, what the coaches want, a ideal play", Walker said.

If Tennessee's offense remains stuck in the mud against Kansas City, a coaching change could follow to help jumpstart a franchise quarterback that has regressed under the current staff.
