Marcus Mariota completed 17-of-28 passes for 226 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Raiders' 30-27, Week 15 overtime loss to the Chargers, adding nine carries for 88 yards and a touchdown.
Mariota handled all but the first two drives after Derek Carr pulled his groin on a failed 3rd-and-goal. It was an impressive, if imperfect, relief appearance. Mariota ran with purpose he almost never displayed as a runner in Tennessee, and was rewarded with the second most rushing yards of his career. Mariota was openly emotional, another vanishingly rare occurrence during his time in Nashville. As a passer, he flashed feathery accuracy on multiple occasions, though he also uncorked a few hospital balls, with one nearly ending Nelson Agholor's evening. His INT was a pass thrown behind Zay Jones that got batted up into the air. Mariota's most impressive play was his 35-yard touchdown strike to Darren Waller, where he delivered a perfectly-thrown over-the-shoulder target. His rushing score was a two-yarder in the fourth quarter where he took on two defenders at the goal line. A quick rule out, Carr has only nine days to get healthy for next Saturday's game against the Dolphins. If it is Mariota under center, he will offer dual-threat upside but serious downside vs. one of the league's best defenses. Dec 17 11:49 pm (EST)
