Marcus Mariota isn’t a finished product, however, and there was a reminder of that on Monday night. The Titans held an intrasquad scrimmage at Nissan Stadium and coach Mike Mularkey said when it was over that it was “a really good night for our defense.”
Mariota was intercepted by safety Damion Stafford and was whistled for a false start on a night that didn’t unfold as he’d like.
“It’s unacceptable, my play today,” Mariota said, via the Tennessean. “I can’t be turning the ball over like that. I’ve got to be putting these guys in better situations. But all in all I’m glad we were able to come out and finish the drives that we did, and we had a pretty good red zone [drill] as well.”
