Mariota looking to learn from Titans’ struggles

Nissan Stadium in the music city of Nashville, Tenn. has been anything but music to the hometown Titan’s ears.

With an 0-6 record at home this season, quarterback Marcus Mariota and the Titans will look to snap an 11-game losing skid dating back to last year, when the Titans host the Jaguars Sunday in Nashville.

“It’s part of the process,” Mariota said. “I’ve learned that no matter what, everyone’s going to go through adversity. It’s how you handle it. It’s how you overcome it.”

At 2-9 overall in 2015, losing has been a new obstacle for the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, who piled up a 36-5 overall record in three seasons as a starter at the University of Oregon.

Mariota thinks the losing will help him and his team grow. “We do it as a team. I lean on these guys, and they’ve been awesome for me, and that’s how we get through it. I feel good. I enjoy the game, I enjoy being here every single day. It’s part of the job, it’s part of the process and I enjoy it.”

The Titans and Jaguars kick off Sunday at 8 a.m. HST.

The game will not be broadcast on network television, but the NFL has a Game Pass subscription for the season that allows you to watch the game after completion. Click here for more information.
