You really don't see plays like this everyday as Marcus Mariota scores one of the unlikeliest touchdowns in postseason history, and he does it all by himself.

This game may have even been the highlight of Mariota's career so far, as he led the Tennessee Titans from 21-3 down in Arrowhead to upset the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round of the 2017-18 NFL Playoffs.

This play seemingly galvanized the Titans. Running to his left, Mariota fires a pass into the end zone which is broken up by, surprisingly, Darelle Revis. Somehow, Mariota manages to catch the tipped pass and takes it to the house.

From there, the Titans scored two more touchdowns to overtake the Chiefs, 22-21.

The score summary on Pro Football Reference reads, "Marcus Mariota pass complete short left to Marcus Mariota for 6 yards, touchdown." Anyone who hadn't seen it for themselves probably would have thought this to be a typo, but it wasn't.

Sometimes, the truly legendary moments in sports history are often unbelievable.
