Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – This week’s game renews a rare rivalry between the Tennessee Titans and the Arizona Cardinals.

Tennessee Titans Marcus Mariota career off to fast start

 

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Arguably the most significant reason for optimism in the Tennessee Titans camp is the play of Marcus Mariota, who completed his second NFL season in 2016.

As a first alternate for the NFL Pro Bowl, the former second-overall pick would have been the sixth Titan to receive an invitation for the all-star game had he been physically able to participate.

His season came to an end when he fractured his right fibula at the Jacksonville Jaguars on December 24th, which required surgery to correct. He was placed on injured reserve in Week 17.
