Mariota, Titans beat Saints in overtime 34-28
NEW ORLEANS - Rookie Marcus Mariota passed for 371 yards and four touchdowns, including the winning 5-yard scoring pass to Anthony Fasano in overtime, and the Tennessee Titans snapped a six-game skid with a 34-28 victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
The Saints (4-5) led 21-10 but could not put away the Titans (2-6), who turned in a feisty performance in their first game since coach Ken Whisenhunt was fired and replaced by Mike Mularkey.
Sunday also marked Mariota's return from a knee sprain that sidelined him two games. He completed 28 of 39 passes, at times converting quick, decisive throws under pressure.
Drew Brees was 28 of 39 for 389 yards and three touchdowns for the Saints. He also scored on a short keeper but was intercepted in the end zone.
Both teams missed go-ahead field goal attempts in the last two minutes of regulation.
