Even though the Tennessee Titans drafted Marcus Mariota in part because of his athleticism, they probably didn't imagine using him much at receiver.

The team found out Sunday that he's more than capable of holding his own on the outside.

Late in the third quarter against the New York Jets, Mariota lined up at receiver as Titans running back Antonio Andrews took the snap in the Wildcat. As Andrews rolled to his right, the Jets defensive back covering Mariota fell down, leaving the quarterback open for the easy touchdown.

Mariota was back behind center for the two-point conversion attempt, which was successful. The touchdown and conversion cut the Jets lead to 27-8 with just over four minutes to play in the third quarter.
