Titans QB Marcus Mariota seems comfortable running no-huddle

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Tennessee Titans got good results for the second week in a row when they went no-huddle with Marcus Mariota.

Trailing 10-0, the Titans got the ball for the third time and went no-huddle. It sparked the most efficient play from the first-team offense: a nine-play, 81-yard touchdown drive that culminated with a pretty touchdown throw and catch in the second quarter of a 26-16 loss.

Mariota faked a handoff, rolled right and threw on the move to Harry Douglas, who was heading for the right sideline beyond the pylon in the end zone. He caught it with safety Kurt Coleman in pursuit.

Fantasy Impact: 

A week earlier, the Titans had success with the no-huddle against San Diego. They used it on their third possession, when Mariota made a good call at the line and adjusted the blocking assignment for Douglas and watched Murray take a handoff 71 yards for a score. Mariota said the offense seems comfortable running it, but for now it's going to remain a change of pace option rather than something the team uses all the time.
