Marcus Mariota probably hasn’t taken part in many tackling drills throughout his football career.
The Tennessee Titans rookie quarterback threw an interception in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts. Colts defensive back Dwight Lowery returned the pick for a touchdown, and on his way into the end zone he ran past Mariota with ease. The No. 2 overall draft pick looked like a kicker trying to make a tackle.
It didn’t go well.

To Mariota’s credit, he began the 2015 season with six touchdown passes before throwing his first interception. Mariota completed 27 of 44 passes for 367 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in the Titans’ 35-33 loss to the Colts.
