Everyone is just really excited. …. It is a clean slate, everyone has an opportunity. There’s a chance to go win it all. I think everything kind of intensifies and guys understand every play counts.”
yes want to continue to play, we want to make some noise, and see how far we can take this thing,” Mariota said after practice said on Tuesday. “We are just going to take it one week at time. Obviously our goal is to get to the Super Bowl. We are in the mix, we have an opportunity, and we’ll do our best to make the most of it.
Unfortunately for Mariota things aren’t looking very good for him and the Titans. In the second quarter of the game, Mariota got absolutely blasted by Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson in the backfield with this vicious hit.
Mariota might not be able to play in many more playoff games if he keeps getting like that. My God, Derrick Johnson is a beast.
