The Bucs and Jameis Winston lost Sunday, but the quarterback closed the gap with rival Marcus Mariota among first-year quarterbacks.

Winston and Mariota were picked 1-2 in the NFL draft, so the Tampa Bay Times created a database of all first round quarterbacks since 1980. Each week we input the stats and compare Winston and Mariota with the others at the same point in their rookie seasons.

Winston threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns against Washington. His quarterback rating (85.67) ranks seventh on the list, just behind Michael Vick at 87.67.

Mariota didn't play this week because of a knee injury. He ranks fifth at 93.62.
