Watch: Marcus Mariota throws pick-six, whiffs on tackle

Sunday September 27th, 2015

After avoiding putting an interception on the stat sheet his first two weeks as an NFL starter, Marcus Mariota watched as the Indianapolis Colts took his first career pick all the way back for a touchdown.

It's hard to blame the interception on Mariota, as he laid a perfect pass into tight end Delanie Walker. However, the ball was popped into the air on the tackle and landed right in the hands of Dwight Lowry, who returned it 69 yards.

Mariota did have a chance for a tackle on the play. It's safe to say that he should stick to playing quarterback. 


The score extended Indianapolis's lead to 14–0 with 12:59 left in the second quarter.
