Jameis Winston tied a rookie record with five touchdown passes and remained sixth on the list of rookie quarterbacks drafted in the first round since 1980.

When the Bucs drafted Winston first overall and the Titans took Marcus Mariota No. 2 the Tampa Bay Times built a database of first-round quarterbacks since 1980. Each week we plug in the stats and compare Winston and Mariota against the others at the same point in their rookie seasons.

Winston's quarterback rating of 86.6 ranks sixth right between Matt Ryan (87.8) and Jim Kelly (83.7).

Mariota is third at 96.4, between Robert Griffin (101) and Dan Marino (91.8).
