Watch: Titans QB Marcus Mariota fumbles without being touched

Sunday September 20th, 2015

Tennessee Titans rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota took a page out of fellow rookie Jameis Winston's book, fumbling without being touched during the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns. 

With the Titans trailing 14–0 and a little over four minutes to go before halftime, Mariota tried to role out to the left and escape the pocket on a pass. But, as he started to run, the ball came flying out of his hands and landed in the lap of a Browns defender. Luckily for Mariota, the play was negated by a penalty.

That wasn't the first time that Mariota coughed up the football. On the last play of the first quarter, Mariota got hit by two defenders so hard that he lost the football, his helmet and a shoe.
