Mariota accounts for 3 TDs, Falcons beat 49ers 28-14 

Marcus Mariota doesn't spend much time remembering the past.

Three years earlier, at this point in the NFL season, Mariota was benched by the Tennessee Titans.

His confidence grows with each game Mariota's career is back on track with the Falcons. 

Ran for another score against the NFL's top-order defense, leading the Falcons to a 28-14 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

Caught in a 7-yard throw from Mariota, which prompted the young tight end to break the vintage "Dirty Bird" dance. 

Mariota won 3 in the last minute of the first half to put the Falcons 21-14 ahead.

The Falcons controlled the clock by outrushing San Francisco 168-50 on a season-high 40 carries.
