Mariota Interception from 2017: #5 (vs BAL) Coming off a bye week and looking for their third consecutive win Tennessee Titans Hats , the Titans hosted the Baltimore Ravens for a Week 9 match-up with potential playoff ramifications for both teams.In this game, Marcus Mariota threw his 5th interception of the season. If you don’t know how this works by now, I suggest reading the below previous articles:Breaking Down Every Marcus Mariota Interception from 2017: IntroductionBreaking Down Every Marcus Mariota Interception from 2017: #1 (at JAX)Breaking Down Every Marcus Mariota Interception from 2017: #2 (at HOU)Breaking Down Every Marcus Mariota Interception from 2017: #3 (at HOU)Breaking Down Every Marcus Mariota Interception from 2017: #4 (vs IND)The SituationAfter limiting the Ravens offense for most of the day, the Titans got the ball back at the start of the fourth quarter with a chance to ice the game away. Nursing a 16-6 lead with 12:03 left to play, the Titans faced a 3rd-and-4 from their own 40-yard line. What HappenedThe Titans had a chance to essentially wrap up a victory with a score on this drive. Instead, they gave the ball back to the Ravens, and with it, new life in this game. Six plays later, the Ravens cut the lead to 3 with a touchdown. The PlaycallThe Titans come out in a formation very similar to the trips bunch we saw twice in the Houston Texans interceptions, in 11 personnel, but this time, the formation is flipped (likely due to the ball being placed on the opposite hashmarks). This tight formation draws the Ravens defense in close to the line of scrimmage before the snap, signaling the man-to-man coverage Mariota will see as soon as he hikes the ball.Perhaps you’ll recall from Interceptions #2 and #3 that the Texans came out with 7 defenders at or near the line of scrimmage but only rushed four.Here, the Ravens do something similar with 8 guys at or near the line before the snap, and only rush three of them. But by showing 8, they can create confusion along the line. I’m thinking Dean Pees will get along well with Mike Vrabel.The appropriate way to punish a team for loading the box like this is to hit them with a play-action fake and throw it deep. So naturally, the Titans only send one player on anything close to a deep pattern and run everything else within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. The Titans have a zone-beater Smash-7 to the right between Davis and Matthews. Underneath Tennessee Titans Hoodie , they are running a man-beater mesh concept with Decker and Walker. Murray is a dump-off option leaking out to the left. The idea with a combo man/zone-beater is for the quarterback to quickly diagnose the coverage, either pre- or post-snap, and then make his reads based on what he sees. As is to be expected based on the coverage calls, the play is extremely well defended. Since Matthews is the only player running downfield, the safety picks him up in a double-team and that option is easily covered by the Ravens. The mesh concept underneath results in three Ravens following Eric Decker across the field with a shell of players surrounding Delanie Walker, as well.Corey Davis looks like he’s about to pop open against single-coverage, but it takes him too long to complete his route. By the time he has separation, Mariota is already releasing the ball. And DeMarco Murray is not alone as he leaks out of the backfield.What Went WrongThe read progression on this play makes no sense to me. It appears to be a basic right-to-left read - you can see Mariota look first to the outside in Davis’s direction. My guess is the read is concerned with the cornerback’s technique - if he is playing off and backpedaling in Davis’s route stem, Mariota would likely try to hit Davis on the curl. But Davis is met with tight press coverage, so Mariota moves onto Rishard Matthews, who is running downfield in the stem of his corner route.What’s confusing about the read progression is that Mariota starts on Corey Davis and then moves to Rishard Matthews. If this was meant to be a zone-beater Smash-7 concept, Mariota should first read the “high” (Matthews) and then move to the “low” (Davis) if the curl/flat corner drops to defend Matthews. Of course, this entire concept is irrelevant on this particular play because the Ravens are in man coverage.Perhaps that is why the progression moves right to left, but what is strange about it is that Mariota never looks at either of the two players running a man-beater concept across the middle of the field underneath, Eric Decker and Delanie Walker.My assumption is that Mariota saw Matthews running downfield with the defender’s back facing him and simply didn’t see the free safety coming across the field. What Mariota saw at the moment the ball was released from his hand.Unfortunately, Eric Weddle was very ready for the pass that Mariota threw, and was there to easily intercept the ball. It does appear that Rishard Matthews is briefly held Youth Customized Tennessee Titans Jerseys , but it may have only slightly impacted his ability to prevent the turnover.Mechanically speaking, Mariota does a nice job with his footwork on this throw with a very clean pocket around him. The decision to throw it, however, was extremely poor.Coach’s CommentsWhile Mularkey wasn’t asked directly about the play and what led to the interception, he did comment on Mariota’s response to the pick.Mariota made a huge mistake on this play, but he did come back after the Ravens score to throw a touchdown pass and re-take a 10-point lead over Baltimore with just 3:58 to play. Responding after an interception was a common theme of Mariota’s throughout the season. The only games in which he didn’t come back on the field and lead his team to a scoring (or even game-winning) drive were against Houston, Pittsburgh, and Arizona. What Mariota Should Have DonePerhaps you’ve noticed by now where Marcus Mariota should have gone with the football.The crossing routes run by Eric Decker and Delanie Walker create enough confusion and spacing that Walker ends up running free. He smartly slows his route as he approaches the middle of the field, aware of the linebacker covering the area to where Delanie’s route will carry him. Rather than run into coverage, Walker wisely sits in the hole just short of the first down marker. Sadly, Mariota did not see him and missed an easy throw that Walker could’ve carried over the line to gain. The biggest concern I have with this interception is that Mariota should’ve known where to go with the ball based purely on the defensive coverage. Although Corey Davis’s route would’ve been better served had he been split out wide to start, overall, the playcall works well to beat whichever coverage, man or zone, the Ravens had decided to run.The Ravens go with man coverage, yet Mariota never looks at the routes that are specifically designed to attack that defense. Further, Mariota should know that he only has one receiver running downfield anywhere near the single-high free safety. If that safety drops at all www.titansauthorizedshops.com , why would you test him, especially with a ten-point lead in the fourth quarter? So is Mariota not being coached to read the coverage, or is he simply failing to recognize man vs zone? This is something we’ll explore in the next breakdown... The Tennessee Titans sit at 3-4 coming off of a trip to London and a bye week. Jon Robinson chose not to add any pieces at the trade deadline, despite a clear need for a receiver or tight end. Unless Robinson has a free agent up his sleeve, Marcus Mariota has what he has. Next up for the Titans will be the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night. The team will head to Dallas to face a team that faced a similar issues in the passing game. The Cowboys will have a different look for the first time all season against the Titans, debuting Amari Cooper in their offense. The Cowboys are hoping Cooper can jump start a passing attack that has been stuck in neutral, dating back to last season. Ezekiel Elliott is the catalyst of the Dallas offense, currently sitting with 619 yards rushing on the season. For the Titans, they’ll just be looking for some sort of consistency on offense. Marcus Mariota looked the best that he’s looked in London since he torched the Eagles, but still, his receivers let him down in key spots. It’s on Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor at this point to figure things out. The gambling public has obviously noted the Titans’ struggles. Tennessee opened as four point underdogs against the Cowboys on Sunday night. That line quickly has grown to Dallas -7. That’s massive movement over a 48 hour period. The total is set at just 41 points. Despite the Titans’ struggles, that’s a pretty large line for two 3-4 football teams. It should be tough sledding for Tennessee against Dallas’ third ranked defense, but the Titans are no slouch defensively either. They sit 11th in total defense, facing what has been a struggling offense.Can the Titans win? Maybe. But I feel a lot more comfortable picking the Titans to cover seven points.
