Marcus Mariota had to be his own receiver to get the Tennessee Titans their first touchdown on Saturday.

Trailing the Kansas City Chiefs 21-3 in the third quarter, Mariota led a Titans drive deep into the red zone.

But on third-and-6, he scrambled left before firing a pass into the end zone, where it was deflected into the air by Chiefs cornerback Darrelle Revis. Mariota then came down with the ball and dove in for a touchdown, sneaking the ball in past the left front pylon.

Mariota was credited both with the scoring pass and reception.

The last player to catch a touchdown catch from himself was former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brad Johnson in 1997, according to NFL research.
