The accolades continue to roll in for Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota for his record setting NFL debut.

Early Wednesday, the league named Mariota the AFC’s offensive player of the week.

Mariota earned the award after a sensational performance in the Titans 42-14 win over the Buccaneers in which he completed 13-16 passes for 209 yards and 4 touchdowns.

The performance netted the Saint Louis graduate a perfect passer rating of 158.3.

Mariota was the first player since at least 1933 to accomplish that feat in his first game.

The Titans travel to take on the Browns this Sunday at 7:00 am HST.
