There have been two running story lines so far in NFL training camps ahead of the 2015.

No-INT Streak

They are the sheer amount of fights that have been happening across basically all teams, and Marcus Mariota's quite incredible run of 10 practices in a row without registering a single interception.

However, it seems that the great mystery of Mariota's unbelievable streak may have been revealed, with the Titans taking their cues from Oregon.

Oregon Titans?

According to a report from David Climer of The Tennessean, the Tennessee Titans have apparently been borrowing plays straight out of the Oregon Ducks playbook in an attempt to fulfil a promise to the Heisman Winner.

"Ken Whisenhunt appears to be following through on a draft-day pledge to incorporate some elements of the offense Mariota directed at Oregon into the Titans’ 2015 playbook," Climer wrote earlier today.

The Titans needed to make a big change and they decided that change was basically going to be the entire offense. They drafted in Mariota from Oregon, talented but flawed wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, two offensive lineman and a potential number one running back in David Cobb.

The Titans are all in on this new offense and they seem to bringing a new playbook with it, with head coach Ken Whisenhunt saying they have been experimenting a lot with their new system.

“We’ve experimented with a few different things,” Whisenhunt said. “If we can continue with that and not overload it, we’re good. … Marcus has done a good job of doing some of the core things that are important to us. It’s been a good blend.”

Oh and Mariota continued his no-interception streak today, going 10 of 14 with the arm today. Not bad young man. Exciting times definitely lie ahead for the Titans.
