Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota continue to perform among the best rookie quarterbacks drafted in the first round in recent decades.
When Winston was picked No. 1 by the Bucs and Mariota No. 2 by the Titans in the NFL draft, the Tampa Bay Times built a database of all first-round quarterbacks since 1980. Each week, we plug in the numbers, filter out quarterbacks who barely played, and compare.
Winston's quarterback rating is 85.6, a few notches below Matt Ryan, the quarterback he beat Sunday, who had a rating of 91.2 in Week 13 of his rookie season.
Mariota is a few notches higher with a rating of 95.3, sandwiched between Dan Marino (97.1) and Ryan.
