Winner: Marcus Mariota
It is hard to imagine exactly what has been going on around Marcus Mariota through four weeks of the season.
In Week 1 he led the Tennessee Titans to a 30 point victory over the now 2-2 Cleveland Browns and had three touchdown passes. However, everyone was quick to forget that and point to Derrick Henry‘s catch and run to show that he was just letting others do the work.
Then in the losses in Week 2 and 3, he was slammed for missing reads and holding the ball too long on occasion. All fair criticisms that I and others have to stand by.
This past week, you wouldn’t have imagined that anyone in the world was doubting him as he almost effortlessly through three touchdowns in the first half against the Atlanta Falcons defense.
He wasn’t targeting bad players or anything, he took the Falcons best defender and made an example out of him:
He looked like a true franchise quarterback again. While everyone is hesitant to get hurt again by trusting the Titans offense, you have to admit that he was great on Sunday and if Tennessee wanted to they could have put up six touchdowns through the air.
