NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – There are Tennessee Titans fans across the nation. We even talked to a few who are making the trip to Kansas City from the United Kingdom.

But there is one state in the nation that will be all eyes and ears during tomorrow’s game, and that’s because of Marcus Mariota.

Now Hawaii is far away, but they love the Titans signal caller, who was born and raised in the Aloha State.

“We are watching him 100 percent, we are supporting him 100 percent, and even though we are a continent away on a little island in the middle of the Pacific and you were in the Midwest, we have a connection and it’s because of him. So we support you guys. We support all Tennessee Titans fans all the way,” said Justin Cruz-Hawaii Residend, a weather anchor KHON-TV.
