Mariota's 7 game stretch in 2016 up against Watson's 7 game stretch in 2017

Recommended Posts

Titans Film Room have put together a good statistical analysis comparing Watson's 2017 stretch that most NFL analysts fell in love with, up against Mariota's MVP caliber stretch in 2016.

 

statistically Mariota edged Watson over those 7 game stretches, yet that seems to have been wiped from the memories from the majority of NFL fans/analysts.

 

firstly i'm not saying Marcus doesn't have his issues, that was plain to see last year, more that all this commentary that Watson is just going to roll out this season and pick up where he was prior to his ACL injury is plain ridiculous.

Perhaps the problem is that in all those other games before and after that 7 game stretch, Marcus didn’t look quite so good. He threw more INTs than TDs (as he did for the entirety of 2017). 

 

Meanwhile, that’s all the games Watson played. He didn’t have a bunch of unimpressive games to balance out the great stretch. Maybe he would have had he not been injured, but he didn’t. So all of his games were part of that hot streak. In fact, his first 2 games were pretty lackluster. His last 5 games were the real hot streak to compare with Mariota's, which would look way better on average.
