Marcus Mariota’s NFL career could not have started any better. His performance was so hot in fact, spectators could not believe their eyes when he literally burst into flames after throwing four touchdown passes Sunday, as the titans raced to a 35-7 halftime lead over the Buccaneers. The flames were said to unleash sometime after he threw his first 52-yard NFL touchdown.
This may be the first time in recorded history anyone has ever performed so well they actually turned into a scorching human fireball during a sports event. Firefighters and medics didn’t even bother trying to put out his fire as he kept playing seemingly unfazed, while in flames.
Could it happen again? With the way Mariota is playing so far, and finishing the game 42-14, I don’t see why not.
Mariota told us after the game, “Honestly, I’m not sure how it happened. I guess I’m just that hot.” We’re just surprised it never happened when he was still playing for Oregon!
