Marcus Mariota catches his own pass for TD

The rally began with Mariota taking matters into his own hands - the Titans' franchise quarterback completed a 6-yard touchdown pass to himself to cut the Chiefs' lead to 21-10 with 6:31 remaining in the third quarter.

Mariota finished with more than 200 passing yards and had two touchdowns in Tennessee's 22-21 win over Kansas City.

With the Titans trailing 21-3 at halftime, he got the comeback going by marching them 91 yards to open the second half and scored on an incredible play.
