4. Marcus Mariota will score a TD
This could be the last game Marcus Mariota plays as a member of the Titans, and for one last time, he’ll have a piece of our hearts.
It has been a rough season for the former No. 2 overall pick. After a bad start that saw him struggle behind a putrid offensive line, the Titans moved on to Tannehill and went on to reel off seven wins in their final 10 games to make the playoffs.
After not being used at all in the first nine games he was on the bench, Mariota has seen three snaps the last two weeks, with two coming in Week 17 against the Houston Texans, and one coming in the Wild Card game against the Pats.
Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith will call Mariota’s number one more time on Saturday night, and he’ll answer the bell by completing a scoring play, whether it be with his legs or his arm.
Win or lose, it’ll be a bittersweet end to No. 8’s tenure in Nashville, and there won’t be a dry eye to be found among Titans fans as a result.
