How in the world was Marcus Mariota more comfortable than Jameis Winston in Week 1 Sunday?

It was Winston that was supposed to be the most pro ready quarterback in the 2015 NFL Draft. But Mariota’s immediate impact in game one was far greater than that of Winston’s and it wasn’t even close. The final score of 42-14 in favor of Mariota’s Tennessee Titans over Jameis Winston’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers showed just how much.

This is the second time in eight months tha Mariota has put an absolute whipping on Winston. And the whipping Winston took Sunday wasn’t much different than the one he took from Mariota in college. They were both on great teams in college and went to equally bad teams in the NFL.

However, the circumstances allowed Mariota to be much more comfortable than Winston.
