Winstometer Week 14: Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota hold steady

Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota both played for losing teams Sunday, but their quarterback ratings remained among the most successful rookies of recent decades.

When the Bucs picked Winston first in the NFL draft and the Titans took Mariota No. 2, the Tampa Bay Times created a database of all first round quarterbacks since 1980. Each week, we plug in the statistics and compare Winston and Mariota against the others at the same points in their careers.

Winston remains sixth on the list with a rating of 85.4, just behind Matt Ryan (92.0) and ahead of Jim Kelly (83.5) Mariota is two spots higher with a 92.2 rating, just a hair ahead of 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.

    ST. PETERSBURG — It was still a game in the fifth inning when LHP Blake Snell walked the leadoff batter, then allowed a single. One swing by the Cubs' Ian Happ (22 home runs) could put a dent in the Rays' three-run lead.

    Blake Snell allows just two hits in pitching seven scoreless innings.

    ST. PETERSBURG — The first foray back to the Trop by the best manager the Rays have had obscured the second return visit by arguably the second-best player in franchise history.

    Figures.

    Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Blake Snell (4) takes the field to start the game between the Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.

    One success story of this lost season is the emergence of LHP Blake Snell as the frontline starter the Rays projected. After a rough start and two demotions, he has been rolling, Wednesday's solid seven innings making him 4-0, 2.57 in his past eight starts.
