NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Marcus Mariota finally showed he could start a game in style, and now the warmup act is over for the rookie quarterback.
Mariota threw a 59-yard touchdown pass to Harry Douglas to cap his only series, and the Tennessee Titans wrapped up the preseason by beating the Minnesota Vikings 24-17 on Thursday night.
The No. 2 overall pick out of Oregon played only four snaps for the Titans (2-2). He proved very efficient as he was 2 of 3 for 74 yards, and he concluded the preseason 21 of 30 for 326 yards with one interception and a 102.9 passer rating.
