Winstometer Week 13: Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota still look solid

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.

The Tampa Bay Times created a database of all quarterbacks picked in the first round of the NFL draft since 1980. Each week, we compare Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota's cumulative performance against the others at the same point in their rookie seasons. As of midseason, we incorporated a screen to assure that a quarterback has attempted a minimum of 50 passes to be included. You can compare quarterbacks by clicking on their names, which will highlight their performance in the graph. Also, if you hover over a line in the graph, it will identify the quarterback.

    TAMPA

    No. 21 USF ran its record to 4-0 Thursday night with some payback against Temple, a 43-7 trouncing, no contest, as if anyone cares, at least judging by the paltry crowd at Raymond James Stadium. Where was everybody?

  5. Former Ray Tim Beckham's over being traded, or is he?

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — As the Rays reunited Thursday with Tim Beckham for the first time since he was dealt July 31 to Baltimore, it became very clear that not everything in assessing the trade is as it appears.

    Tim Beckham, here in action Monday against the Red Sox, has hit .310, with 10 homers and 26 RBIs since going to the Orioles.
