Marcus Mariota
QB TEN (8)

Mariota completed 10 of 15 passes for 117 yards during Sunday's 21-0 loss to the Ravens. He added two rushes for 25 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Mariota couldn't get into a rhythm throughout the game and was sacked more times (11) than he completed passes (10). Even with his limited attempts, Mariota missed key opportunities to make an impact on the game, most notably overthrowing Taywan Taylor on a deep post route that would have tied the game at seven. While the Ravens defense is a tough matchup for opposing offenses, the Titans have now failed to get in sync for two consecutive games and scored more than 20 points only once this season. That makes it difficult to trust Mariota as a starting option, even with his upside as a rusher.

Mariota said he still isn't ready to play without a partial glove on his throwing hand, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mariota has been using the modified glove ever since he injured his throwing elbow in Week 1, impacting his ability to grip the football. He was unable to build on a huge Week 4 outing against the Eagles, completing 14 of 26 passes for 129 yards with no touchdowns and an interception during Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Bills. Mariota will have a tricky matchup Sunday when the Titans play host to the Ravens.

Mariota completed 14 of 26 passes for 129 yards and an interception during Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Bills. He added two carries for 10 yards.

EDGE Analysis

After a breakout Week 4 performance, Mariota landed with a thud in Week 5 at Buffalo. He was unable to lead the Titans to any touchdowns and averaged just 4.3 yards per attempt. That mark was propped up by his longest pass of the day, a 23 yard pass across the middle of the field to Corey Davis. The performance will raise questions regarding Mariota's health, though the performance could also be a product of a conservative offensive gameplan.

Mariota completed 30 of 43 passes for 344 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception during Sunday's 26-23 win over the Eagles. He added 46 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries.

EDGE Analysis

Mariota did it all on Sunday, accounting for 65.7 percent of the Titans' rushing total all while picking the Eagles apart from the pocket. He was particularly surgical during overtime, converting a fourth and 15 with a 19-yard strike to Taywan Taylor, later converting a 3rd and 19 with a 17 yard scramble followed by a 17-yard dump-off to Dion Lewis, and then capping the game off with a 10-yard loft to Corey Davis. In what was his first full game under new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur, Mariota looked like what the Titans thought they were getting when they drafted him second overall. He gets an inconsistent Bills defense on Sunday.

Coach Mike Vrabel said the Titans hope to have a larger array of plays for Mariota this Sunday against the Eagles, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mariota donned a glove on his right hand when he entered last Sunday's eventual win at Jacksonville, but downfield throws were not a part of the equation due to lingering issues with his elbow and hand. After Mariota practiced in full this week, Vrabel seems to think such throws will be sprinkled into the game plan Sunday, boosting the prospects of Mariota and the Titans' skill-position talent. There's nowhere to go but up for Mariota on the heels of a 100-yard passing performance Week 3.

Coach Mike Vrabel said Mariota (elbow) will start Sunday's game against the Eagles, Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mariota ended up playing the majority of Sunday's 9-6 win over Jacksonville after Blaine Gabbert suffered a concussion in the first half. Vrabel acknowledged that Mariota still had some limitations in terms of the throws he could make during Sunday narrow victory, but the team is optimistic that won't be the case in Week 4. Vrabel said said Austin Davis will serve as the No. 2 quarterback, dropping a strong hint that Gabbert isn't expected to clear the concussion protocol before Sunday.

Coach Mike Vrabel said there are still throws Mariota can't make as he works his way back from an elbow injury, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mariota replaced Blaine Gabbert (concussion) early in Sunday's 9-6 win over Jacksonville, completing 12 of 18 passes for 100 yards and adding 51 yards on seven carries. The Titans went ultra-conservative on offense while playing with a limited quarterback, and the plan worked out surprisingly well thanks to a big day from their defense. Vrabel said he hopes to have the full package of plays available when the Titans host the Eagles in Week 4. The situation still needs to be monitored closely, as the team might consider starting Gabbert if he clears the concussion protocol before Mariota's elbow is fully healthy.

Mariota (elbow) completed 12 of 18 passes for 100 yards while adding 51 yards on seven carries in Sunday's 9-6 win over the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Mariota didn't start the contest, but a helmet-to-helmet hit in the first quarter knocked Blaine Gabbert out and forced Mariota into the game. The second overall selection in the 2015 draft only threw for 10 yards in the first half, but he did add 26 on the ground and led his team to one field goal. He was a bit better after the break, leading the offense to two more field goals, which was enough to eke out a low-scoring win. Mariota is operating at less than 100 percent, so owners are probably better off looking elsewhere even if he gets the start next week against the Eagles.

Mariota (elbow) entered Sunday's game against the Jaguars after Blaine Gabbert, who started the game, headed to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion, per Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site.

EDGE Analysis

Mariota, who has been nursing an elbow injury, began the game as the team's backup, but once Gabbert was forced out of the game, Mariota took over at QB for the Titans. It remains to be seen how much his elbow injury affects his grip (and throwing), but with Tennessee only carrying two signal-callers on their active roster, the team had no choice but to turn to Mariota, even at less that 100 percent.

Mariota (elbow) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, but is expected to serve as the Titans' backup quarterback behind Blaine Gabbert, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.

EDGE Analysis

Mariota has been making progress in practice since suffering an elbow issue in Week 1, but the Titans are evidently inclined to take it slow with the QB, thus prompting the team to lean on Gabbert for the second straight week.
