Statistical correction improves Titans QB's passer rating
The Titans announced Thursday that the Elias Sports Bureau corrected an incomplete pass on the first offensive play of Tennessee's opening 42-14 win at Tampa Bay by changing the scoring.
A penalty was called on the play, and Mariota originally was credited with an incomplete pass while a Tampa Bay penalty was enforced after the play. Elias changed the scoring with the penalty negating the play.
Mariota still had a perfect 158.3 passer rating for the game. He now has one less incompletion, boosting his passer rating from 109.2 to 110.3 along with a 63.5 completion percentage instead of 62.9.
