“When I was coming out of college, (Philip Rivers) really helped me in terms of my footwork,” Mariota said according to the official site of the San Diego Chargers. “He spent some time with me going through drops, being under center, talking ball (and) coverages and certain things that he was seeing. Things he had to go through when he was transitioning into the NFL.”

Tennessee averages 152.3 rushing yards per game (3rd). RB Demarco Murray (160 car, 756 yards, 6 TDs) has rebounded as a stud running back after struggling with the Eagles last year.

He completed 20 of 47 passes for two touchdowns and three interceptions. WR Tyrell Williams (32 rec, 530 yards, 2 TDs) is dealing with a knee injury, but he’s expected to play.
