NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Mariota's future is "very much in doubt" with the 2-4 Titansafter he was benched Sunday in favor of Tannehill. Mariota was pulled in the third quarter after connecting on just 7 of 18 passes for 63 yards with two interceptions in an eventual loss to the Broncos. After Tannehill finished 13 of 16 for 144 yards and an INT in relief, the No. 2 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft might have lost his job for good.
Tennessee is clearly at a crossroads with Mariota, who's in the final year of his rookie deal. The fifth-year QB appears to have regressed this season, completing a career-low 59.1 percent of his passes. It comes just one year after he registered a career-best 68.9 completion percentage. But his uneven play and bouts with inaccuracy have long plagued Tennessee's offense.
